as a charity in 2000, we won the national Performance Hub prize in 2007 in recognition of our soft skills development work in the charitable sector. The ‘for-more-than-profit’ company, Barrier Breakers (UK) Ltd, was subsequently set-up, with the purpose of spreading the success of our approach,
Barrier Breakers provided deep insight and a practical, applicable, real-life soft skills development approach for our teams of managers and consultants. Ms. Tobin was a great value-add to our Summit and the attendees left with much to think about as well as concrete experiences to assist them in their dealing with customers, vendors and interactions among themselves.
BBM provided my team with a brilliant way of looking beyond current barriers, adopting more enterprising approaches, and being increasingly adaptable and responsive to change. It's a powerful approach that challenges you to put aside previous habits of thought, and is of great value to individuals and organisations from all walks of life needing to survive in our rapidly evolving culture.
Everyone should attend the BBM BreaksThru day; it’s so worthwhile and has so many applications in work and personal life. It really helped with my coaching techniques for others and my personal business development as well. Thank you!
BBM produced results that were insightful, thought provoking and productively challenging, both for our organisation who commissioned the work and also for the individual interviewees. BBM’s tools for tackling the barriers to communication in a variety of ways were extremely helpful.
BBM has provided me with a great, simple, effective structure that I can now use to monitor my work environment for barriers - it’s already helped me pinpoint and break through some really intransigent ones, and that’s saved a lot of time.
I am thrilled to have found BBM. It provides a really useful scientific, rigorous base to support and enhance my work.
The Jazz of Business is a book that should be read by every single CEO!
BBM allows me to see what I need to provide next for each child to enable them to make progress. It helps me to identify strengths and weaknesses and address them appropriately. It's important to look at these skills at this stage in children's development, as they have a key part to play in their learning.
