ABOUT BRIE BARKER

Brie Barker

Founder / Executive Director — CTDP, MCATD, CPBA, BA

Since 2002, Brie has provided leadership development training and coaching to thousands of people – current and emerging leaders who work for companies and organizations throughout North America.

Brie has a rare combination of experiences in business, sales, instructional design, coaching and facilitating — along with his background as a professional actor.  His uncanny ability to observe, decode and simulate real human behaviour and emotion produce valuable and transformative opportunities for his clients to develop the advanced, interpersonal skills required to succeed in leadership and management.

Brie has a real passion for what he does.  And he’s funny.

Brie lives in Ottawa, Canada, with his wife and two, young children … who often think he’s not all that funny.

“Brie is a very intuitive and gifted actor and facilitator.  He is present to others like few others I know.  This presence helps others to increase their self-awareness and skills.  He is a pleasure to work with.” Peter Gardiner-Harding

Executive Director, playsthatwork

“What Brie does is help you interpret what you are actually conveying to the other person and “how” that makes the other person feel.  Once this is clear, he coaches you on how to refocus the conversation so that both parties can hear the content and move forward in a positive way.” Ruth Gmehlin

Co-founder, Trillium Teams

“Brie is fantastic to work with – professional, thoughtful, insightful, creative and adaptive – he makes difficult conversations look easy!” Debra Brown

President and CEO, Brown Governance
