Dear Barbara, Thank you for sending me a copy of the book as well as a bottle of your perfume! Your support for Haiti’s vetiver oil producers and our ongoing dedication to fair market sourcing is a great example of doing well in business by doing good for the world. All the best to you and everyone at The 7 Virtues.
I am writing to say thank you for the inspiring talk you gave to the Sobey MBA students as a part of their professional skills development program. The student response was overwhelmingly positive and I have had a number of students approach me to say they thought you were one of the best speakers we ever had in our program.

You were a resounding hit at the Halifax Entrepreneurship Expo!!!! We received a great deal of feedback and attendees shared they felt you were the best speaker.
Your sense of humour and the way you engaged the audience is still buzzing in our community.

We had the pleasure of having Barb Stegemann as a speaker June, 2011 to wind up our year and she exceeded all expectations.
We had many women tell us that she was the best speaker she had ever heard and another who thought she could make a living as a stand-up comedienne.

Her fearless pitch on CBC’s Dragons’ Den made her the first woman from Atlantic Canada to land a venture capital deal.
The best selling author and seasoned business woman has been delivering talks and providing strategy for decades to advance socially conscious goals. Stegemann’s gift is waking up others to their purpose and she draws from the stoic wisdom of the great philosophers she writes about in her book, The 7 Virtues of a Philosopher Queen - a woman’s guide to living & leading in an illogical world.
A timely book for women (and men) seeking direction and leadership for their families and communities in uncertain times. It reminds us to look for the answers we already have within.
