I had the privilege of hearing Barbara speak at the Valencia Digital Summit 2023 on Remote Work. Her insights as a fempreneur and solopreneur were not only enlightening but also practical and forward-thinking. Barbara’s expertise in digital trends and her engaging speaking style make her an invaluable asset in this field. Highly recommend for any digital and remote work initiatives.

Over the last few years we have worked together on a number of projects. Barbara gave a series of keynote speeches on our behalf for the topic “Working successfully in a virtual global environment”. Some of the events held online were attended by over 100 listeners. The results were always the same: absolutely enthusiastic customers and listeners.

I highly recommend Barbara as a remote work consultant. I met her recently and was impressed by her extensive knowledge of practical tools and theoretical frameworks to guide leaders and teams. She champions the concept of work-life harmony over balance, offering a fresh perspective that has proven invaluable in today’s dynamic work environment.

Barbara’s session about hybrid work and collaboration for us was meaningful and helpful. She also created immediate intimacy through her engaging personality and established her credibility as an expert in this domain of hybrid collaboration and team work.

Barbara’s Keynote “Dancing into Leadership” during the Leadership Horizon by MDI was the ultimate highlight and an epiphany! The concept is absolutely outstanding and just can’t be argued about because it makes perfect sense transpiring it to the concept of effective leadership. Loved every second of it and I hope I can transport this to my management as well. I can’t thank YOU enough!
