“As Chief Executive in Cork Simon and Cope Foundation I commissioned Barry to run a range of management development programmes.
These included one to one coaching. In these Barry tuned in to the strengths of each individual Manager and he designed bespoke sessions for each person. During these, he supported people to identify and work on things that challenged them in their work and in the Manager role. He also helped people to recognise and build on their skills.
Feedback about Barry’s guidance and mentoring was invariably positive. People said they found him honest and encouraging.  I am very happy to recommend his work”.
Senator Colette Kelleher

“Barry has coached some of my colleagues in the past and I have also engaged with him personally. He is challenging and supportive, and has a great way of helping people explore what’s important and develop a good understanding of the areas that require focus. He has helped me and colleagues to make changes and leverage strengths which resulted in improved performance and contribution”

“I had the pleasure of undergoing a Coaching Programme with Barry. I would recommend Barry to anyone who is looking to furthering their career, is interested in professional development and self-awareness, or indeed is at a crossroads in their career. The process was tough at times but very worthwhile. I found Barry to be a tremendous support, his patience and guidance throughout were fantastic”.
