Thank you for your assistance in helping us to identify and understand our system requirements. We are looking forward to benefiting from much improved management reporting.

Barry’s knowledge of the tourism industry has also led to his services being used for tourism judging and management mentoring:


I have been pleased to use Barry’s skills as both an awards judge and also a mentor on the Talent Programme, TMP’s successful management and leadership programme for supervisors and first line managers in tourism and hospitality. Across both activities he gave his time and experience to support others. He is reliable and dependable and easy to work with. Barry recently worked with TMP to formulate an awards judge’s Code of Conduct.
