Power Partners Initiative: 
"An utter surprise and an utter joy. This session felt like an Ivy League level university course on the Art of Clowning, and left me deeply inspired by how the nuances of clowning, play, and self expression can contribute to powerful and meaningful communication - professional and personal.  As an Ivy League grad and networking trainer, I was completely wowed and I'm now recommending The Hidden Languages of Business to my clients and friends, especially if they think they "know" business communication. Time well spent!"

Creative Problem Solving Institute: 

"Barbara has a unique gift of engaging the entire room for the duration of her workshop. What I thought would be a lighthearted introduction to comedic principles turned into a practical application of in-depth principles that I have been using to better inspire and create community for entrepreneurs.”

- Alexander Zorychta, Coordinator for Student Entrepreneurs

Foodplay Educational Theater: 

"A parent from Ichabod Crane School in New York called this a.m. She raved about your shows there, and passed on that the principal said that in his 30 years in the field, you handled the audience better than anyone else he's ever worked with. Wow!"
