There’s only one person I call when one of my clients needs a “knock em dead” speech—that’s Barbara Seymour Giordano.  She has this uncanny way of knowing exactly their speech should contain that gets my clients rave reviews and bookings after bookings.  Her hands-on work isn’t done until everyone is completely satisfied with her contribution making every speaker she works with sound like a total pro.  I highly recommend her –no need to look any further than Barbara.

All I really need to know about giving speeches I learned…from Barbara! Being a university professor who has taught dozens of courses over the years, I considered myself a pretty good public speaker. That is until I was given the opportunity to work with Barbara on my TEDx talk and quickly found out I had much more to learn. Once I realized I was in such capable hands, I surrendered to the process and let Barbara work her magic. She helped me in so many ways—from figuring out the core message I wanted to share to helping me craft a compelling narrative that was certain to connect with listeners; from making stunning visuals to go along with my key points to teaching me how best to deliver each line of the talk. In the end, Barbara made sure my talk was not just informative but unforgettable. To this day, when the presentation stakes are high I contact Barbara—it's wonderful to know I have a trusted storytelling coach that offers guidance, insight and honest feedback.

Barbara is a powerhouse creative, engaged in a dynamic exploration of verbal expression. I would not have been able to deliver such a passionate and honest talk without her teaching me to dig deep and embrace diverse aspects of my own creativity. I was quite stunned at her devotion to researching my area of expertise, which then allowed me to fully relax into that sumptuous feeling that I was in very capable hands. I also very much appreciated Barbara's clear explanation of the process and working timeline, her ability to connect to my message, her very kind demeanor, and her integrity. She has inspired me with her zest, spiritual discernment, and emotional understanding. She is quite akin to a life coach – or as I like to call her, my Saint Barbara.
