In the spirit of trying to get better, trying to learn and of course “share the ball” with others we’ve recorded many of the “live” career development classes we’ve taught as well as seminars we’ve run.
Below are links to some of these but buyer beware…
We’re proud of the content but the actual video production is very rough…the videos themselves were not meant to be made into feature length films…moreso to document the events and content

“When I first talked with Barry it felt like I had known him for years. His ability to engage with other people is one of a kind. Not only is he experienced, but he has the ability to illustrate the art of making connections with other professionals. He is a great mentor who is more concerned with making you better, rather than telling what you want to hear”
Ryan Palsha – Banking – Private Equity/Venture Capital
“I have been fortunate to know Barry for more than 15 yrs now.

“I have only known Barry for a relatively short period of time, we met in London a few years back when he brought a USA Maccabi select team to Europe. We met socially but he soon became something of a distant mentor to me in my career. Right from the outset I found Barry to be genuine, a quality unfortunately lacking far too often. Barry was honest, open and questioned my thought processes which allowed me to think differently and develop new perspectives in the way I viewed how I should develop my career”
Marc Dinner – Programme Manager at Kaplan
