Barb is a popular speaker all around the world. Here is feedback about some of her previous engagements.
“When we were launching our learning initiatives at Hitchwood, we knew we wanted a way to engage the interest and effort of our team members at many levels — scientific, conceptual and personal. Barbara’s broad life experiences, well researched and produced material, excellent teaching methodologies, and humble, authentic style were just what we were looking for. Her “Learning How to Learn” presentation provided a great springboard for a firm-wide dialogue inspiring and supporting our team’s collective and individual commitment to mastery learning and harnessing creativity through deliberate effort and practice.” – Hitchwood Capital Management LP, Manhattan, New York
“Faculty members on my campus marveled that Barbara Oakley’s teaching tips were based on scientific facts! The session evaluations were overwhelmingly positive and described actions that faculty planned to implement right away. I received several enthusiastic thank yous, in person and via email, for bringing Barbara to our campus.” – Carla Vecchiola, Director, Hub for Teaching & Learning Resources, University of Michigan-Dearborn
“When I attended Barbara Oakley’s lecture at the Center for Homeland Defense and Security I had no idea I was about to hear what turned out to be the best presentation I’d heard in my over 25 years in the profession. Her insights into how the brain learns were truly life changing for me, and to this day influence me in how I understand myself, my colleagues and my young children.” – James Marsh, The Center for Homeland Defense and Security
