Building a Community’



Barry’s new book will be published in September


The follow up to ‘Lead Like Mary’, it tells the story of the eight year project to build a new village hall in Fradswell, the trials and tribulations along the way, and how it was the catalyst that built a vibrant rural community.


It reflects on the leadership lessons learned along the way and how, by adhering to the timeless principles of effective leadership, any goal, however unattainable it may seem, is achievable.


It examines the crucial importance of effective community leadership, and how leaders are needed at every level, everywhere.


The book is aimed at both a leadership audience, and those engaged in any community or other voluntary endeavor
