I cannot recommend Barbara highly enough. She is an extraordinary communicator and connector, and an extraordinary human being. Barbara adds value, exponentially, to any endeavor—as a creative thinker and a creative do-er.

Her warmth, radiant intelligence and unshakable integrity would be an asset to any organization.

My association with Barbara is of unusually long standing. We were childhood friends. Circumstances separated us geographically – I moved to Australia while Barbara headed west to California – but our bond has never wavered.

I had the pleasure of watching Barbara bring The OpEd Project’s core seminar to San Diego a few years ago. Single-handedly, she built a community of like-minded women that remains intact today. She’s driven, personable, and relentlessly creative – a real joy and asset to any team.

Founder at The Millionaire Girls Movement

I met Barbara Field at a speaking engagement. Barbara was promoting the Op-Ed project at the time and although I was the speaker that day, she pitched the program with such passion and fervor that I would not only sign up for the program myself, but I became a champion and advocate of the Op-Ed Project.

Barbara also served as a panelist for the Millionaire Girls’ movement. Her passion to connect others, advance a project and create change inspire and motivate those in her circle.

Barbara is a great writer, communicator and connector. It’s a pleasure to work with Barbara in any capacity.

Barbara is a gifted writer whose deep thinking allows her to always tailor what she writes to the audience and purpose. In addition to clarity of thought, Barbara has amazing creativity. She is always able to come at things from a fresh perspective that grabs people’s attention and makes them feel personally involved.
Barbara has written mostly educational materials for me in the areas of health and human sexuality. But I am an equally devoted fan of her marketing pieces and fiction.
Barbara’s attitude is stellar as well. She’s always positive and upbeat. “Can do” is her motto. Truly, she’s a pleasure to collaborate with.

Barbara is both creative in her work and diligent in the delivery of projects. It was a pleasure to work with her. She did a laudable job as one of the editors of our alumni magazine for a period of almost two years, when it was first launched. We’ve occasionally worked together over the last eight years and I admire her clarity and ability to deliver in a timely manner. Barbara expertly manages her projects and builds strategic relationships across departments. She will bring those enviable skills to any team that is savvy enough to hire her.

Having met Barbara many years ago, it has been a pleasure to watch her career rapidly gathering momentum in the ensuing years. While her management skills and her oral and writing skills were what initially led me to hire her, she has many other skills and strengths. She proved to be a joy to work with, primarily because she is a clear communicator, has an easy-going style, takes genuine pride in the quality and quantity the work she produces, and has a wide array of skills that are needed to perform exceedingly well at an extraordinarily high level of demand.
