#truDublin Track Leader Snapshot: David Barrett

Track – Graduates: The Opinionated Generation or Generation Me? 

As a qualified Occupational Psychologist, David has extensive experience in managing commercial service / software teams with substantial revenue targets, direct advisory and human resources / organization development consulting in over 30 countries. With specialities including people assessment and development systems and internet based psychometric assessment tools, David knows a lot about people and how they think and is therefore perfectly informed to question the self-serving motives of today’s self-obsessed generation. Are our graduates really all me, me, me or are they just braver than other generations in demanding the resources they need in order to succeed? Along with Marina Morrissey of Sigmar (who has more graduate experience than you can shake a stick at), David will discuss both sides of the coin at this year’s #truDublin unconference on May 27th.
