We employed Barrie as a mentor when we started working towards the Trusted Charity Mark. We met with him every two months for approximately one year. We always found Barrie to be punctual and prepared for our sessions. He had an open and approachable manner and his advice was always helpful and practical. Barrie’s feedback to us was always honest and he was very good at helping us to focus and look at things differently and objectively.

At times we found going through Trusted Charity challenging but found that with Barrie’s positive and motivational support that we were quickly re-motivated and focussed to overcome any hurdles. Barrie was always professional but had a good sense of humour. He has left us with the confidence and skills to know that we can continue to move forward with the final stages of Trusted Charity. We would highly recommend Barrie to any organisation.
