“Barb helped me reconnect with my guiding ethos and to speak up confidently for good governance processes without being concerned about how the message might be received. She helped me to develop the courage to have uncomfortable conversations for change and discover that this is how I can make the biggest difference to people’s lives.

The resources and challenges she asked me to complete continue to be useful to me. Now I am willing to accept progress is better than perfection and to be open to contribution from others. I feel free to expand my influence and leadership and contribute to conversations that make a global difference.”
