President and Chief Project Manager
Punt Consulting Group
Barbara Punt has over 25 years of experience managing major capital projects and the development and installation of site-specific artworks for museums, children’s museums, science centers, planetariums, and aquariums. She has a unique “insider’s/outsider’s” perspective from her years on staff at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, the Franklin Institute, Liberty Science Center, and the California Science Center as an exhibit designer, project manager, and exhibit operations manager prior to founding Punt Consulting Group. A proponent of the adage “Project management is the art and science of getting people to want to do what you need them to do,” Barbara’s daily work requires the tact of a diplomat, an accountant’s attention to detail, the persuasiveness of a cheerleader, and Gumby’s flexibility in juggling and prioritizing many tasks.
