"I met Barri Carian through the National Association of Women Business Owners and have had the absolute best experience working with her for the past year. As a leader, as a mentor, as an advisor, and as an entrepreneurial thought-leader, Barri never ceased to inspire me with her insights. She has a talent for honing in on specific issues and offering actionable advice, thereby changing and impacting businesses immediately! I have so enjoyed learning from Barri and look forward to continuing to work with her for years to come."

“My partners and I recently hired Barri Carian to facilitate a strategic planning retreat. We were amazed in just two days, Barri was able to lead us to develop an actionable five year plan, though each of us entered the meeting with very different ideas for the future. She brought a mountain of preparation and proprietary tools to the session, making it both effective and enjoyable. In my 30 years in management I’ve worked on many strategic plans and participated in many strategic workshops, but none have been as effective as Barri’s.”
Ken Kerr, Former CEO, Advisys Inc.
"CEO Roundtable, under the direct guidance of Barri Carian, has changed my perspective of my business and how I measure success. I’ve been in Barri’s CEO Roundtable for over a year and I’m astonished by the growth I’ve experienced, both personally and professionally. Each person in our group adds value to my business and after a short few months, I set goals and have gained and given accountability within the group. Business and personal goals have been refined and accomplished, with the help and clarity the group provides me. I wish I would have joined the CEO Roundtable years ago!"
