He delivers fascinating and impactful new insights in our long format 90 minute presentation slot, and is always descended upon by our conference attendees with a slew of questions and their new personal insights during the breaks. In 2018 Nexus secured Barry into the MC role for our two day “Secret History of Australia Conference”, at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. Barry was invaluable, prepared with detailed content and also five decades plus knowledge of how to calm and assure presenters. These many years of career experience in radio and television and also as an MC, coming to the fore when plans changed within line-ups. Barry slotted into problem solving mode, reworking introductions and delivering in a way where nobody in the audience had any clue of last minute additions or behind the scenes machinations. You can literally point him into a direction, leave him with it, and have ultimate confidence there will be a smooth and perfect result. As Events Manager for Nexus, I know I can throw Barry in the deep end and he will come out with gold. I also lean on Barry for very helpful suggestions and solutions during the entire process, and this is why he is such an important member of our team. We are grateful for his specialist abilities and for him to have our backs when we are all under pressure at any Nexus Conference.
