Barry Ferguson, Group Strategic Planning Director at Carat UK
Barry has nearly 20 years of communications and advertising experience having worked at New PHD, Capital Radio (Global Radio), OMD, Gamesys, MediaCom and Carat. He is rare in that he has worked on all three sides of the communications industry; he has been a client, a planner and has also worked on the media owner side. As such he has a full perspective of how the industry operates. As you would expect he has worked on hundreds of campaigns for dozens of clients. He has significant experience of both implementation and strategic communications planning but has a specific interest in the psychology of planning, and so any brief with a behaviour change requirement is greeted with a warm smile. He is married with two children and certainly qualifies as a ‘fun’ Dad - “I’m not sure who is more grown up, them or me”. He is a strategy games nut and peers consider him to be an expert at Chess, Backgammon and Poker.
