“As founder and CEO of the Advanced Profit Innovation Conference (APIC) and leader in the distribution industry, my goal is to bring in speakers who can actually transform our audience and equip them with substantial tools and value to help them navigate the tremendous change our attendees are facing. Barbara is that speaker. Not only does she captivate their attention with entertaining real-world stories, but her engaging style helps the audience understand how to apply the principles of Change Intelligence to the pressing leadership challenges that are disrupting our industry. That’s why we’ve brought her back as a speaker for three years in a row! Hire Barbara if you want to create a powerful experience with lasting impact for your audience.”

“I had the unique opportunity to invite Dr. Barbara Trautlein to present at both the PMI Montgomery County Maryland Chapter and the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. She rocked the audience at both places! With over 300 members in attendance at the full day PMI training, she dazzled them with her seasoned change leadership knowledge. I particularly admired her ability to engage the large audience in group exercises and openly address their unique professional questions with thoughtful recommendations. Additionally, in a one-hour seminar at the National Cancer Institute, I was able to observe how she adeptly adapted her material to present to a scientific audience. If you’re seeking an energetic, engaging, and eloquent expert, I strongly recommend Dr. Trautlein.”
