Helping audiences Laugh, Learn and Think since 2015

Live (remember those days?) or Online (pants optional)

No matter how we work together, each talk is customized for your crew

Why work with me?

The easy answer is, "Why not?"

The better answer is “What are you craving?”
(I know that’s a question, but it’s a legit one.)
Here’s the package deal you get with me:

  • Experienced leader

    Nearly 30 years in the US Air Force taught me a lot about myself, follower-ship and leading others. There are a lot of life parallels we can leverage between combat time, thousands of hours in the cockpit and general military life survival.

  • Quick-thinking

    As the smart-aleck last of 6 kids, I learned to think fast on my feet (mostly to charm my way out of trouble … which I never got into) (or did I?). As a practitioner of improv and stand-up comedy, I love battles of wits and punning the crap out of things.

  • Articulate

    I speak da goodliest English! I steer clear of them high-falutin’ words and snazzy jargon. I walk my talk and talk my walk. Learn from my past so those lessons won’t have been experienced in vain!

  • Captivating

    If you’re looking for a monotone presenter to hypnotize your audience, I am not the magician for you. If you want a mesmerizing entertainer to captivate your audience while sneaking in solid lessons applicable to work, home and life, I'm your gal!

  • Relatable

    I thrive off human interaction and offering a refreshing perspective. So, I want to know your specific challenges and needs so together, we can laugh, learn and think!

  • Entertaining

    You’ve sat through brutal presentations of pointless graphs (I don’t just mean pie charts, I mean graphs that have no meaning). Can we all agree that a dull topic well-presented beats an engaging subject poorly presented? Every. Single. Day.

  • Quirky

    I’m done suppressing my quirks. It’s time to put those rascals to work for me. Let’s unleash your quirks, because you have a contribution to make that only you can provide!

Making the decision to learn, play, and be.

You can be an effective leader in your society, household, community … in your life.

The Internal Combustion Engine of Anything:

AKA: Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow

Time we invest now leads to better decisions later.
In this workshop, attendees will be taught an effective process to make more productive decisions. We’ll accelerate our decision making by slowing down. Yes, it’s true. We'll speed up by slowing down.

While many of us feel like decision-making can be draining, complicated or a waste of time, it can actually be quite simple.

The Internal Combustion Engine of Anything is available as a single day presentation or an immersive 2-day workshop. Both options are interactive and deliver on the same promise: provide tools to accelerate effective, thoughtful decisions.

Mo, the monosyllabic-monikered author leverages laughter for levity and lighthearted lessons. As they say, hindsight is 20/20 and her anecdotes viewed through the lens of humor help any reader find the funny in everyday spectacles. But that’s not all. She widens the aperture beyond the laugh, helping you learn from every interaction, giving you something to think about and prompting you to see the humor in your own life. No need to pardon her quirk, these anecdotes DO make you laugh, learn and think.

When I first met Mo Barrett a little over a year ago, I was impressed with her wit and intellect. You can’t help but feel cheerful in her presence. She has a remarkable ability to extract wisdom from what most people see as just mundane everyday events. In her book Pardon My Quirk, she uses an easy storytelling style to share some of these gems with us. As a fellow U.S. Air Force officer, I could relate to many of the situations she shares in the book. I found myself nodding, smiling, and laughing through every page!

In addition to her kick-ass pilot creds, Mo Barrett is a compelling storyteller and inspirational speaker. In her book, she carefully compiles her best short and personal stories so that each chapter becomes a potential self-coaching tool and exercise in self-development. She promises to make you laugh, learn and think—I’d add tears of self-discovery to that—and she delivers in style!
