Washington University School of Medicine

Barbara conducted two half-days of professional development for our training staff recently.  I was very pleased with both the content and the facilitation.  She prepared activities and content that was very relevant for our department, and her informal, conversation style immediately engaged the trainers.  We can’t wait for her to return to facilitate discussion of her new book!

Charles Albach

American Theological Library Association

We were very pleased with Barbara's presentation at our national conference session on teaching and learning.  She was lively and interesting, and I heard from many people who thought your presentation was great.  In addition, I was impressed by your skill at “reading” the group and adjusting to fit the time we had.

Jennifer Bartholomew

“It was a terrific presentation!  Thanks for the practical techniques and ideas."

John K. Hart

ASTD International Conference

“I’ve been coming to this conference for three years and yours was the best presentation yet!” 

Add Mercedes

National Association of Nursing Educators, Utah

“Thanks for a great conference workshop. Overall the evaluations were exceptional.”  

Carolyn Wallin

National Association of Nursing Educators, Utah

Thanks for the training.  I did take the information and apply it and other techniques you taught in class.” 

Joey Robinson

Concordia University Wisconsin

“I found your presentation at ATLA to be most useful.  The day I got back to work I was doing a bibliographic instruction session for business students and I made them exchange information with a buddy and discuss what they hoped to learn.  At the end I divided the class up into two groups and used the Relapse Prevention questions.   Some of the obstacles they came up with were things I had not considered and was then able to address.  I got a lot of positive feed back after the class.  Thank you so much.”

Ruth Gaba

Service Canada

“Thank you for an excellent presentation.  We all learned a lot we’ll be able to put to use. It was especially enjoyable to see your excellent trainer techniques – you definitely practice what you preach!”  

Eileen Barreth
