Providing my clients and followers with street-smart, practical solutions which they can use to solve their business and life problems is what I live to do!
I have over 25 years experience working with either small businesses and or organisations established to help small businesses and entrepreneurs.
I deliver training and coaching for businesses especially in the area of personal development, communication skills, public speaking, leadership and team building, to name a few.
I consult with organisations and businesses both in the profit and non-profit sectors in areas such as strategic planning, capacity building, etc.
I write and speak extensively on the subject areas mentioned above (http://www.impacttrainingservices.com) to add to my work and to help people in general.
I have a highly developed sense of humor which I rely on to help me through most days.
My goals are to help at least one million people across the world dramatically improve their lives and establish 7 diverse businesses as my retirement plan.
Impact Training & Development Services or ITDS is one of the tools which Lorna Barrow uses to deliver street-smart business solutions to her clients.
