Barney Tremblay is MD of ‘Professional Impact’, a human development consultancy. For more than 30 years she has helped people reach their full potential both personally and in business to become better leaders and communicators.
Always wanting to know more about what makes people tick she continues to study psyschology and communication. Travelling the world extensively corroborates her belief that people everywhere share the same basic desires and goals, and have far more in common than they have differences.
She is a founding member of the University of Surrey’s Leadership Academy and as a faculty member is privy to cutting edge thinking on leadership and communication.
Barney has a flair for writing and speaking, no doubt enhanced by the fact that she was formerly a professional broadcaster. She can still be heard occasionally on BBC radio commenting on leadership, communication and image related topics, including royal weddings, the Olympics, royal births and elections.
During the last seven years Barney has concentrated on youth mentoring, both hands-on and in an international advisory capacity. In her six year association with Mosaic Barney has been instrumental in training across the nation and as a member of the National Educationalist Panel.
Her own continuous professional development includes gaining a qualification for teaching adults, which supports her conviction that learning is indeed a life-long experience.
Working with companies, often under their CSR umbrella, she trains volunteers to inspire and motivate students in their local schools, both in groups and one to one.
Not only have these mentoring programmes had wonderful results for the students, the mentors often comment on the postive effects of the training in their business world, to themselves as individuals and to their families.
Barney has also co-created and regularly facilitates retirement programmes assisting the babyboomer generation in preparing for sucessful transition into retirement. In June 2014 she became a Director of ‘Plan Your Future’.
Barney’s professional approach to everything is always energising, positive and holistic.
