"I first met Barbara Stennes, Lifetime Certified de Bono Master Trainer, in 1992. She was a promising apprentice from the start and has since taught my thinking methods to thousands of individuals, helping to improve thinking in organizations around the world. Barbara became one of my first Master Trainers and is now one of only 3 Lifetime Certified de Bono Master Trainers worldwide.
