Barry is an exceptional individual in the world of spa & wellness management. He has the rare ability to be a creative brand marketer as well. This is an important trait for someone who leads operations globally. He understands the need to pull through operationally what marketing needs to communicate to their audiences – creating one seamless brand experience that customers will want to talk about and come back to. This has made my job as a PR and marketer infinitely easier as it allows for creativity and focus in developing new ideas that can tell a story well in each market. Barry has an innate marketing ability and creativity in developing programmes that motivate and engage his audiences which make it a rigorous exercise in developing plans that support his marketing vision.
