If any of these resonate, then read on …

It’s the small changes that make a big difference.

Introducing Barrie Wyatt

Barrie makes things happen!

Barrie has enjoyed an extensive business background in the public sector and has worked at a senior level with organisations such as BP, IBM and Vodafone to create the first professional body for cyber security (the Chartered Institute of Information Security). For the past eight years Barrie has been using that professional experience to support charities. He has been Chair of Trustees at GAVCA for five years, is currently a trustee of GRCC, and is the only licensed mentor of the Trusted Charity (formerly known as PQASSO) quality standard in Gloucestershire. He is a qualified NLP Practitioner.

As those he has worked with will attest, he is firm but sensitive in his support, and enables charities to become more professional and thereby to be able to deliver even more benefit to their chosen clients. Barrie has a great insight into how charities work and has helped them identify and build on their strengths as well as develop in areas where they had weaknesses. He has helped some develop a better understanding of how to measure their effectiveness, and his underlying aim is to improve the effectiveness of the voluntary sector.

In his spare time Barrie enjoys sport, especially playing badminton, growing fruit and vegetables, developing his photography skills and watching plays with his wife Gill at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon.

All his family play musical instruments but he has to settle for listening to music, making the most of volunteering at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival. And, when he has any additional spare time, he is a big fan of Brandon Sanderson fantasy novels.
