My Biography

Growing up in the UK I was a typical boy interested in all types of vehicles from cars through to planes with a healthy interest in Lego (the best toy ever invented). As I got older this interest led me to joining the Air Cadets. Then after being taken for a trip in two-seater Chipmunk aeroplane one sunny Saturday afternoon I was sold and wanted to join the Royal Air Force.

After leaving school I got to realise my dream of combining my passion for technical challenges (the Lego thing) along with my interest in vehicles by joining the Royal Air Force as an electronics engineer. From fixing satellite communications through to air traffic control systems I started to learn the importance of planning, scheduling and efficient use of resources. Later in my career I started to learn about project management and how controlling the work led to faster completion of tasks.

This led to me wanting to learn even more about project management so in the summer of 2003 I started my degree in project management and left the Royal Air Force to pursue a career as a Project Manager.

My career as a project manager has resulted in me successfully delivering projects for a wide range of companies in a number of different sectors. From Pharmaceuticals and Housing through to Retail and Distribution.

“We have worked with Barry on a number of enterprise projects over the past two years. Barry has been thorough in his approach to each project and seeks to ensure that projects are well structured and goals clearly defined.”

Along the way I have learnt many different tricks and techniques to make delivering projects faster and easier. My aim with this site is to show you some of these techniques so you can enjoy the same success that I have had with delivering projects that make a difference.
