Story
Introduction

Barry is a consultant focussing on the use of web technologies 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 emerging tools such as blogs and wikis.

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. He is a co-founder of Onlignment, a consultancy and training company focussed on the art of real time communication. A regular conference speaker on a wide range of subjects including web 2.0 technologies, social media and open source learning tools.
