Barry is a consultant focussing on the use of technology to improve organisational learning, communication and performance.
He has a diverse background, having been a retail manager before a move into HR and then on to training and development, where he went from stand-up training delivery to training manager. Later as Learning Technology Manager at B&Q he worked on a number of award-winning elearning and blended learning programmes, and championed the adoption of collaborative learning tools and technologies.
In 2009 he co-founded Onlignment with Clive Shepherd and Phil Green.
Although he now spends much of his time watching the horizon for new and innovative developments in technology, he takes a pragmatic view of its use and his previous management experience keeps him focussed on its application to the business priorities of getting the right things done, on time and on budget.
Barry is a regular conference speaker on a wide range of subjects including web 2.0 technologies, social media and open source learning tools.
