Barbara has a talent for helping speakers to find their key messages and how to bring them out to the world! Here is what some executive women and young professionals who have worked with Barbara are saying:

“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.”

Sonja van Meerbeek

“Once again, for TEDx Binnenhof, senior TEDx coach Barbara Rogoski did an outstanding job to prepare several of our speakers. Her passion, creativity, and love for what she does as a speaker coach came through with each of her speakers. She is reliable, professional and clearly wants her speakers to perform at the highest level possible. If you are in need of an executive speaker coach, Barbara is the one you want to work with!”

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.”

“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.”

“When I was invited to do a speech at TEDx Binnenhof 2014, I was a bit concerned if I could create a strong speech that is worthy of a TED talk, and deliver it well in English. When I met Barbara for our first strategy session, she immediately tried to put my mind at ease and that we would accomplish our goals. Over the next weeks, Barbara worked closely with me to craft the script so that it made sense, to practice the delivery with polish and enthusiasm - but most of all to make it my story. After all the blood, sweat and tears, we came up with good speech that I could present with confidence in English. It was a great success - in part from Barbara's attention to detail and gentle, but focused coaching style. I would recommend her to any executive who needs to learn the things I learned from Barbara on how to deliver a great speech!”

“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.”

“For me, the TEDx Startup Award was the first time that I had to speak in front of such a large audience, and I had to do it in English!. Of course, I do speak English, but delivering my message in 3 minutes, in English, was a bit of a struggle for me. Barbara not only helped me to find the right sentences, but also added passion and humor to my talk. She also coached me and gave me the confidence I needed in the weeks before the contest, when the pressure was very high. Barbara is a really warm and helpful women and I can definitely say that Barbara helped me winning the TedxAmsWomen startup awards. Thank you Barbara!”

“It's a true accomplishment to translate a conversation of 2,5 hours in which we explained our market, business model and our vision, into a 3 minute pitch that's even TED-worthy, as well. An accomplishment we thank to the help of Barbara! As a TEDx Speakers coach she helped us to gain confidence to not only tell our story, but also to inspire others with our story. Barbara is enthusiastic and loyal and does not stop until you have the perfect speech!”

“The TEDx Ams Women Startup Award competition was one of my first experiences of talking in front of such a large group of people, of course an amazing experience,but also something I felt I needed to prepare well. Thankfully, Barbara was there to help me out! Although I knew which story I wanted to tell, she added a nice emotional touch to it and all together we created something I was very proud of! It is her gift to challenge speakers to search for true meaning in their stories. In preparation of and during the talk, she is there to motivate and guide you. Thank you Barbara, for this magical experience.”

“I highly recommend that anyone involved in public speaking, whether for social functions, in-house company presentations or conventions or conferences, book skills-training with Barbara. She is a delightful, patient and professional guide. Barbara imparts not only the necessary skills for delivering a well considered speech, but also the confidence necessary to start your transformation as a speaker from acceptable to exceptional. It is an excellent investment for anyone to make and I will without a doubt, continue to work together with Barbara in the months ahead. ”
