What People Are Saying

“.......I was most impressed with Barbara’s speaking and presentation skills and I invited her to present at our nationwide “Good Morning Barbados” TV program, we were celebrating, “Women in Leadership. “ Barbara, was met with a very good response from our audience and she then was invited back to also present during one of our leading radio programs “Girl Talk” and she received great feedback from both our radio editors, presenters and audience. A series of regular appearances was then discussed with CBC. From my some 20 years of senior management experience, having been CEO/VP Marketing of some 6 different companies in Barbados, UK and Sweden, Barbara possesses outstanding presentation and leadership skills and she should be very well suited for a marketing and/or management role.......”

“Barbara was a great asset to me personally and the campaign in general.... As my personal advisor, I found Barbara M. Vernoski’s skill, knowledge, insight, and attention to detail, invaluable to the success of my Senate run.......She is the Face of Women in Leadership; confident, capable, sensible, effective, efficient, a dynamic leader and well read...She takes great joy and pleasure in helping others become their very best and grow into their potential. She knows how to develop our confidence and bring out the very best in the people she works with. Not only does she have the ability to lead others but has led herself through many challenges in her personal life. I can attest to her credibility and high moral character. I hold her in high regard.....”

“Barb has great knowledge. She loves to learn. Not just through the academic world (for that would just be knowledge) but also through embracing the lessons learned through the good, bad and ugly of life and using them for good. Nothing is wasted. That’s the application of knowledge. That’s wisdom. That’s Barb. But not everyone can apply life’s lessons. It can be difficult to see the life lesson when one is in the pain of the circumstance. That often requires a good “unravel-er”; someone who can weave their way through the tangles of the heart, the knots of half-truths, the dyslexic way we can view life and then skillfully navigate to the heart of the matter. That’s Barb.” .... On one hand, Barb is a “what you see is what you get” kind of woman. She is exceedingly bright and witty, transparent, honest and sincere. But better still, she is “deep water” for her transparency and honesty is wrapped in a zeal to see us all live to our full potential. She loves to inspire, insightfully sees the weaknesses within and wisely knows how to help shape them into strengths. You can read in her biography all of her accomplishments. While she will not (and should not) discount them, she sees them for what they are, open doors that God has given her to vibrantly impact her world in a positive way. Knowledge abounds… but a woman who has wisdom is a treasure. Barb is a treasure.
