Throughout this website, you will see feedback I have received for the various projects I have completed over the years. Here’s some more.
“Barry is an innovator and amazing thought leader in the learning and development space. He gets what it takes to engage learners and help the learning stick. He has added incredible value to the business through the Lift Portal offering, approach to virtual training, using story telling as part of the A&N launch. He is a collaborator and an exceptional individual to work with. He is always looking for ways to improve our offerings as well as improve the lives of our customers – our learners! Barry has created something truly spectacular and cutting edge at HYG. It has been a great honour and privilege to work with you good man!”
“Barry continuously seeks to improve what the Commercial Training team have to offer our customer. Whether that is through our training approach (Virtual, Train the Trainer, content creation), process for gathering information from the business, creating mobile platforms that support people through times of change (working from home, COVID-19 Site, HY-IMPACT site, Lift Portal), coaching colleagues on how to effectively train virtually or how to look after your mind and body. He is strategically minded and thinks of the best and most cost-effective ways for getting our information out there. The lift portal is less than £10,000 per year can have over 10,000 users and is accessible via multiple devices. In comparison to the US offering which is considerably more expensive, for less users and is less accessible. A true gem of a human being and trusted advisor.”
“Strategic with a focus on alignment with the team’s deliverables. He is an exceptional professional and continues to develop his skills so that he is always at the top of his game!”
“I have seen Barry help his colleagues a lot and he is often called on by others for advice and guidance on how to help learning and messaging land!”
“You are transforming the way this business learns and views learning. At one point the team wasn’t even on the map (organisationally or otherwise). With your creative direction and drive we are showing this business the value and necessity of having a training and development team. Not only in EMEA, but globally. You have gone Viral! Being pulled in to help on everything from HROne to Working from home, to health and well-being, to Sales enablement. I honestly believe you can do anything and it is a privilege to work with you.”
“Barry takes great care and attention in his design work. He takes complete ownership of a project and runs with it. He can be totally relied upon to get a project moving and to its destination. What he designs provides a real opportunity for learning transfer. He is thoughtful in his design, he has a great depth of knowledge around learning theory that he really does ensure that Commercial Training and others are part of that. His influence on designing material has rubbed off on the team and they relish learning from Barry, even those without design responsibilities. Barry’s attention to detail is top notch, whilst still ensuring he reaches out to others to test his design and content. His materials are interactive, responsive, engaging and interactive and also have that extra wow factor in that they are designed for the special needs user.”
“Barry, you continuously think of how to create better outcomes by focusing on the learner and their needs. You drive for results and you innovate the way we “do things around here”! You are a strategic player and you engage and enable people to be and do better! I love the way you have evolved in the business. Your name is known far and wide for the incredible skillset and value you bring to the organization.”
