Motivational Lectures

Education is a Process, not an Event

Dr. Barnett believes that education is the channel that opens doors to options, opportunities, and possibilities.  The world of the twenty first century is upon us.  The need for clear decision making, rational choices, the ability to articulate and communicate, the foundations of reading, writings, and computing have become paramount and indispensable.  It is for these reasons and more that Dr. Barnett lectures and interacts with more than 75,000 young people a year in colleges, high schools, community centers, and corporate settings.

Dr. Barnett’s message reaffirms the limitless bounds of human possibilities, and the methods to be successful in bridging dreams and reality.  Dr. Barnett further articulates a five step approach with clear examples and portraits of how to achieve, worked, and live your dreams.

Dr. Barnett’s philosophy has been shaped by the edicts of philosopher George Bernard Shaw.  He observed that  “when you see things you asked why, I dream things that never were, and ask why not”
