Australia and New Zealand Tour - June 2014

Barbara has recently completed a tour of New Zealand and Australia, visiting six cities and presenting to approximately 3500 people.

Barbara commenced the tour as the keynote speaker at the Adult and Community Education (ACE) Conference in Wellington, New Zealand.  While in Wellington she also spoke at a Parliamentary Breakfast to parliamentarians and invited guests, about the impact of learning difficulties. There were public appearances in Wellington and Christchurch. After ten days in New Zealand, Barbara toured Australia and completed a total of eight presentations in Melbourne, Sydney, Wollongong, Gold Coast and Brisbane.

During the tour three of our new sites were visited – Samuel Marsden Collegiate school in Wellington, New Zealand, Holy Trinity Parish in East Bentleigh, Melbourne and The Illawarra Grammar School in Wollongong, both in Australia. Thank you to everyone who supported the tour through attendance at one or more of Barbara’s events or by sharing information with friends, family, colleagues and online.

Barbara intends to visit Australia and New Zealand again in August 2015. She is expected to visit Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland.  If you are interested in having Barbara speak for your organization or at your event, please contact Bruna Simoes at
