SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS

Recognized as the authority on gender in the workplace, the Gender Intelligence Group has taken their message about inclusive leadership, and gender and cultural diversity around the world.

At seminars and public events, Barbara is engaging and focused as she delivers “aha!” moments to her audience. She does it with passion because Barbara truly believes it is her life’s work to create positive change for companies and organizations through a deeper understanding of gender differences.

Barbara’s presentations are fun, dynamic, and full of real-life examples, including the very latest research on the brain structure and hormonal differences between men and women and how those differences inform the thoughts and actions of each gender. It is Barbara’s mission to absorb, then share her knowledge with audiences, often inviting the ‘true heroes’ of this exploding field of knowledge along with her, the scientists on the leading edge of brain research.
