Remarkable, Outstanding and Sensational are just a few of the words that begin to describe Dana Barrett as a speaker. During our inaugural Leadercast Women’s event (which was simulcast live around the world), she was nothing short of amazing. Dana’s preparation was meticulous, and she found unique and creative ways to tie every aspect of our theme to her message. In fact, she spoke with such a level of conviction and understanding, most people thought she had been around our organization for years.

Without question, Dana truly knows how to share knowledge with an audience in a personal way, making each attendee feel as though she’s speaking directly to them. Dana makes it seem effortless as she informs, entertains and engages. Her depth of experience, flexibility, and passion ring loudly to the audience and every person on our staff agreed she was a true pleasure to work with.

We’ve had the best speakers on the planet grace our stages over the last two decades and Dana ranks up there with all of them. She is sincere, charismatic, and will keep people glued to their seat with anticipation. I give her 5 STARS and would highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to be blown away by awesomeness.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Dana Barrett for 3 years now. Dana is truly a dynamic personality and the Atlanta market is blessed to have her as a part of it! I run Venture Atlanta, the premier venture capital conference in the Southeast for emerging technology companies. In 2015 and 2016, Dana Barrett served as our event host. She was fantastic on stage, well liked and kept our programming going the entire time.

Dana takes the time to truly understand the event she is hosting and ensures the audience is engaged with the program. Dana took the time to write a powerful script, understand the audience, and worked many hours with me.

I have also seen her on stage at many other events around town including TedX Peachtree. Dana is a sought after personality and any event would be lucky to have her on stage. I have also had the pleasure of being a guest on Dana’s radio program. Again, Dana takes the time to know her guests and prepares everyone well. I highly recommend Dana Barrett to host your next event! You will be very pleased with the outcome and your guests willdefinitely be entertained.

Dana served as host of the annual TEDxPeachtree conference from 2015-2017. Her professionalism and versatility onstage were only matched by the diversity of the speakers and their respective ideas each year.

Dana was adroit at synthesizing each speaker’s idea and developing a cohesive and entertaining script that engaged and entertained. Her impressive improvisation skills were put to great use each year during the live show that was also live-streamed to a global audience. I would recommend Dana for any show that is looking for wit and smarts.
