Introduction

Chris Barrow has been active as a trainer, consultant, coach and mentor to the UK dental profession for over 20 years.


Chris combines long experience and deep expertise with the originality and independence needed to resolve the thorniest problems. Naturally direct, assertive and determined, he has the ability to reach conclusions quickly, as well as the sharp reflexes and lightness of touch to innovate, change tack and push boundaries.


As a speaker he is dynamic, energetic and charismatic. 


Chris spent the first 17 years of his working life in the corporate sector and followed this with 23 years of self-employment. The different dynamics of both worlds have given him the valuable gift of knowing how to operate – and communicate – in both.


In 1987 Chris was active in the establishment of the Institute for Financial Planning, an organisation representing the first fee-based Financial Planners; Chris specialised in working with small businesses. 


In 1993 Chris decided to make the transition to business coaching and became one of the first UK students at Coach University, from where he graduated as a certified coach.


Recognising the opportunity in the dental profession, 1997 saw the creation of The Dental Business School (DBS) and the development of a 12-month business coaching programme for dental practice owners and their teams, delivered to over 600 UK dental practices in the following 10 years.


In October 2008, Chris became Director of Private Sector Development at Integrated Dental Holdings Ltd and now acts as an occasional Non-Executive Director as well as continuing his freelance consultancy work for corporates, PCTs and independent practices.


In February 2013 Chris became a founding partner at 7connections, working with dental practices and groups on training, consultancy and coaching.   7connections also aspires to become a source of private equity for those with bright ideas in the business of dentistry.
