About Barry

Barry is one of the most experienced people working with ImagineNation™ bringing together his vast research, technical, consulting and business development, client liaison knowledge, experience and skills acquired globally across a diverse range of industries.

At 10 years old his family relocated from the East End of London UK, to one of the developing local New Towns in the North. From there and outside of school hours he built a door to door sales family business which grew significantly. This experience gave him confidence, people skills and street smarts, rarely found in early teens of that era.

Upon the sale of this business, Barry completed his schooling and pursued his love of photography and his career path in Science and Technology.  In his mid teens he joined Hawker Siddely Aviation now British Aerospace in the Flight Testing Laboratories.  He moved on to ICI (Imperial Chemical Industries) Plastics division and in tandem  with sponsored  part time formal education he became an experimental research chemist, with the responsibility of some technical staff.

Barry has always believed that working in industry and studying in tandem offers the best experience.

After graduating in Analytical Chemistry Barry migrated to Australia with his young family.  After a number of significant R&D laboratory roles, Barry moved into management of a National Research Facility, with the responsibility of technical staff.

With his confidence and people skills now further enhanced together with additional training, he accepted an international Sales and Marketing role, and with significant success was able to work with them outside of Australia in a senior role.  From here he was sought after by a number of companies to Manage Sales and Marketing, and was also a State Manager of a global company responsible for all aspects of the Sales, Marketing and Manufacturing operations.

In all of his roles starting within ICI, his focus was always on invention and innovation.
