“I do alot of public speaking as CEO and Co-Founder of TomTom. But the TEDx talk was different. I wanted to be really well prepared. Barbara came in and brought the right amount of guidance and pulled out the stories, phrases and a bit of structure I needed to make a memorable script and also taught me a few new things about my own delivery style which I didn't expect. Barbara is professional, passionate, supportive and a very talented speaker coach.”

Corinne Vigreux, Co-Founder of TomTom


Barbara is a great suppoter of women's issues. For four years she has coached and empowered Female CEO's, startups, visionaries, entertainers and professors to reach their full potential at giving a TEDtalk. Not only were they able to give a stellar TEDtalk, they continued to do so afterward. I am very grateful to have Barbara Rogoski as a great supporter and TEDtalk coach at TEDxAmsterdamWomen.”

“I never really presented on a prestigious stage like the TEDx Ams Women Startup Awards event. I am the Chief Technology Officer and enjoy giving demos and pitches at smaller events, but taking the TEDx stage can be intimidating. Luckily, Barbara stepped in to help me prepare for this experience by increasing my confidence. She worked very hard with me on the content and taught me many things about how to be a strong female presenter and even video recorded me in the last session for our review. I didn't win the competition, although I feel I have already won because I had Barbara as my speaker coach.”

“Barbara has the ability to define and clarify key messages we wanted to communicate and encouraged the speakers to deliver these messages with focus and impact. The attention to authentic storytelling is something that many speakers need guidance on. We started out with two executives who needed speaker coaching and it turned into a convenient retainer relationship where I could call Barbara whenever one of our other speakers or spokespeople needed help. This flexible retainer arrangement makes my job easier because I have a professional speaker coach on hand that canstep in at a moment's notice. It is comforting to have an expert with an outside view close to my team, allowing us to tell and present stories that stick, that make a difference, and that are compelling to listen to.”
