Barry has 17 years’ experience of working in the youth sector, initially in an operational capacity in the development and delivery of positive activities programmes; then over the last 12 years performing a more strategic role within a national youth charity. Barry specialises in strategic development, policy and relationship management, capabilities which Barry employed in his most recent role as Director of Strategy and Policy at Ambition.
For the last two years Barry has been an integral part of Ambition’s leadership team, and has successfully integrated two new cohorts into Ambition’s existing membership, growing the network from 36 members to over 150. Alongside this Barry has managed the review, evaluation and implementation of services and programmes in an evolving membership and sector.
Barry is a keen sports enthusiast, participating in various multi-sport activities whilst also volunteering as a coach and manager for an under-13 football team, which keeps him on his toes in terms of cultivating and balancing an environment where fair play, competitiveness and fun can harmoniously thrive.
