“I hired Ernest to kick off Global Entrepreneurship Week 2011 at Medicine Hat College. He spoke to over 120 students, faculty and curious onlookers about personal branding and the intelligent use of social media. Frankly, he couldn’t have done a better job. He engaged his audience, related to students, and delivered impactful insight. Even better, he gave his audience real world case studies to inspire action. I’d recommend Ernest to anyone looking for a speaker on social media, marketing or the importance of personal branding.“
— Jon Sookocheff — Manager, Entrepreneur Development Center, MHC
“Ernest’s presentation was tailored to the veterinary profession. It was a very relevant interactive talk that more than met our objectives and exceeded our expectations. His examples of what to communicate and more importantly, what NOT to communicate to make the difference between success and very public failure, was of particular interest to our group. The simple and practical tools and techniques that he provided us with were very useful and could be used immediately.
My experience working with Mr. Barbaric was excellent from the start of the pre-conference planning process through to the post-conference wrap up. He is professional, knowledgeable, entertaining, and an effective speaker. I highly recommend him as a creditable highlight to any conference.“
