We had Barry in the office today and it was a hugely positive experience.  He took the time to talk with over half the team, and has already given some great insights.   Really excited to see how this develops over the next couple of weeks”

    Barry is an exceptionally talented Learning & Development professional and Coach. Barry has a friendly and results driven approach both as a coach and a trainer. All the work I have completed with Barry has been to a very high standard across a range of industries and I would recommend Barry as being at the very top of his profession.

Barry delivered group and individual development programmes for Phoenix. The feedback was always extremely positive from a demanding client group. I particularly liked Barry’s self-confidence, pragmatism and breadth of knowledge. Barry is supremely mature and understands the human dynamics that exist within an organisation and can quickly identify problems and a range of development/ leadership solutions. I would have no hesitation in reccommending Barry.

Senior Leadership Team

BAe systems

    Barry is great at generating ideas and at the same time being practical about what can be done and how in a variety of situations. Barry developed a full range of management development programmes when I worked with him and was clearly passionate about his field then as he remains today. Whilst Barry can stand alone in his delivery he is also a great team player and I really enjoyed being part of a delivery team with him on our sales leadership programme. Barry gives his time and skill to help others beyond that which one would expect.
