LIFT Podcast: Rosemarie Barnes talks about Confident Stages – and Rosemarie Barnes

The cover image on Rosemarie’s Vancouver Island Local Business Directory listing says it all: Speak to engage. Speak to succeed. An international speaker, best-selling author, and “executive presentation trainer,” Rosemarie has a passion for helping people find the voice they need to succeed. And, she’s the guest workshop leader for the Comox Valley Women’s Business Network event on November 15, 2018. Details and tickets here.

We’re excited to have Rosemarie in our LIFT community for several reasons.

  • One, she’s offering a 20% discount on “presentation training” to LIFT members.
  • Two, Rosemarie is an example of Vancouver Island talent serving markets far beyond our local communities. In her case, she’s working with clients across North American and in Europe.

I talked to Rosemarie on October 26, 2018, She told me about her business, why she started it, and her passion for the work she’s doing. We also talked about her biggest challenges in life, her favourite books, and her favourite place to eat cinnamon buns on the Island.

Rosemarie is a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers, the Public Speakers Association, and the National Speakers Association, Rosemarie has presented in theatres, boardrooms, conferences and in the bathroom shower. I hope you enjoy our conversation!
