“Finding a speaker to present to multi-million dollar women business owners isn’t easy, but Mindy Barker brought a depth of experience in financial infrastructure and strategically building enterprise value that hit just the right note with these savvy entrepreneurs. By using humorous stories of real-life situations from her newly-published book, Pitching to Win: Strategies for Success, and interactive polling software, she kept the audience engaged, entertained and informed. Her program guided the select Circle group through how well they were managing, monitoring and building enterprise value in each of their companies.  One CEO even conveyed that she read the book in advance, then changed her entire pitch presentation based on the book and the conference presentation, gaining greater confidence as she prepared for her own pitch presentation.”
