About Brenda Hamre-Barr
"If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves." Thomas Edison

Brenda Hamre-Barr focuses on training your leaders of tomorrow with the big picture in mind; not what is convenient for the moment. Training focuses on how the leader can create an effective learning atmosphere for students; not what is simply in the best interest of the leader at the time.
Leaders are challenged by having to answer questions like:
a) What do your participants need to make their learning fulfilling, satisfying, memorable?
b) How can you be an effective leader for years to come; what changes need to made over time?
Brenda Hamre-Barr believes customers' needs are of the utmost importance. The entire team is committed to meeting these needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals. If you like what we do, please tell others. If not, please tell us!
