  • Barry has a really synthetic view which is key to reducing challenges to small iterations, helping to get quick feedback and adapt to maximize value. He really understands lean and agile methodologies and sees how they can be used, not only in startups, but even in larger, more complex companies.

  • Barry was instrumental in the conception and formation of an ‘innovation engine’ at Not only were we able to identify and develop winning ideas at pace but the whole organization was reinvigorated by an approach which delivered measurable results

    Chief Trading, Product & Technology Officer

  • Barry constantly challenged what others held to be sacred in order to deliver a series of rapid proofs of totally new concepts for JustGiving; and together we explored the complex boundary between business fundamentals and software development to forge experimental new practices.



  • The only thing that is constant is change. And it’s happening faster and faster. Disruption is ongoing, yet leaders tend to think incrementally about the future. Barry shows us a better way: the only way to disrupt yourself before someone does it for you is to unlearn, separate yourself from what has worked in the past in order to create an open space to shape the future. A great sessions for any leader in fast-moving environments faced with the realization that what worked in the past won’t work in the future.

  • We have all been there: that feeling of facing challenging obstacles, environments, and circumstances, but knowing we must do something to overcome. Transforming big organizations starts small, by transforming ourselves. Barry O’Reilly challenges us all to unlearn and innovate our own game.
