A Quick Synopsis of Barrie’s Life

  • a childhood spent in wartime Britain;
  • a youth powerfully influenced by the liberal thought and intellect of Oxford;
  • a sickness which has broadly restricted, and in a clear way, directed his life;
  • 9-years building media experience in the Nuffield Organisation, (British Motor Corporation);
  • a 5-month car journey from England to Australia;
  • 6-years of public relations work for Archbishop George Appleton in the Diocese of Perth;
  • 11-years working very closely with Bill Warnock (who’s personality made a profound influence on him);
  • 9-years at manager level in media production for tertiary education;
  • and above all, 35-years contributing whatever he had to building Men of the Trees.
