Over the past decade Barry has worked with thousands of people in hundreds of teams in dozens of organisations to unlock potential, develop leadership capability and build effectiveness.
His focus and passion is to inspire and enable leaders at all levels to unlock their own potential and that of their people. Through giving people freedom within a clear framework, encouraging them to make a meaningful contribution, listening to them and treating them with dignity and respect it is possible to transform the world of work, and amazing results will follow.
Barry's work encompasses the private, public and voluntary sectors in the UK and abroad. Through many engagements with clients he has developed a superb reputation with his unique approach and style, his focus on building strong, long-term relationships and his proven ability to transform people, teams and organisations.
Every engagement with a client involves a tailor made solution that really meets their needs. He uses a variety of approaches, including diagnostics, facilitation, teaching, coaching and mentoring.
Barry has developed a particular expertise in working with the Chief Executives of organisations over a sustained period of time to enable them to set a clear strategic direction, develop a high performance culture, and build the effectiveness of their people.
He is also passionate about working with younger emerging leaders, helping them to develop their own leadership confidence, awareness and abilities, enabling them to truly make a difference for future generations.
As well as carrying out paid assignments throughout the UK and abroad, Barry also gives a significant amount of his time freely as a Trustee of three different charities, in mentoring relationships, and also through ongoing and ad hoc contact with many past and current clients seeking his advise and support.
