Successful Speaker Now!


Our Motto is: Speak Your Truth and Make a Difference!br large mic370

Barbara Rogoski founded Successful Speaker Now in September 2011 after listening to too many boring sales and financial presentations in her own successful sales career. This dynamic and fast moving communication company trains executives in large multinational companies to develop strong content (messaging) and deliver that message with impact, influence and engagement.

Our customers include Fortune 500 company CEOs and Managing Directors, Heads of State, Ministers and TEDx speakers. Our clients are from all over the world where we work together, either in person or virtually – There are no borders! We work with Microsoft, Deloitte, Achmea, Merck, Rabobank, ING, European Commission and many others.

We specialize in executive speaker coaching 1:1, Boring to Brilliant Conferences and empowering women with She Speaks with Passion at all levels of the organization to step up and speak up for what they want. Barbara is American, but is relatively fluent in Dutch and who uses a combination of English and Dutch effectively in her coaching.

For us, it is about transformation and empowerment.

Contact Barbara today to discuss your company’s speaking needs and to customize a training program just for you!
