I work with CxOs, Directors, business leaders and teams of globally recognized companies to create high performance organizations.
I thrive in challenging environments with high uncertainty and complexity.
I am the Founder of ExecCamp, an outcome-oriented immersion program for business leaders who see the world differently. People who are willing to step out of their comfort zone to make a lasting cultural impact on themselves and their organizations.
ExecCamp is the only true entrepreneurial experience for executives to leave their existing business with the goal of creating a new one. Work with thought leaders, venture capitalists, startups and industry experts to experience a unique business innovation environment, test business hypotheses at speed and learn by doing.
Barry takes a refreshing and highly effective approach to getting a cross-functional group of managers to identify and prove value from innovation that would otherwise remain hidden or blocked in their business. The approach of driving very early customer testing well ahead of when it would normally be done - in parallel with developing the bigger vision - forces a focus on minimum viable product and early proof points. This proved to be very engaging in our business for stakeholders up to board level - instead of 'here is a big programme - trust us' the message was 'here is a game changing initiative and you can touch and feel the first steps of it'. Barry brings a very practical style and methodology to bear which empowered the team - so we really owned the outcome and developed both as a team and as individuals.
Barry was instrumental in the conception and formation of an ‘innovation engine’ at lastminute.com. Not only were we able to identify and develop winning ideas at pace but the whole organization was reinvigorated by an approach which delivered measurable results.
