Chris Barrow is our latest Peoples’ Ambassador. Chris has operated his own businesses for 32 years and has been a trainer, consultant, coach and mentor to the UK dental profession for 23 years. He combines long experience and deep expertise with the originality and independence needed to resolve the thorniest problems.
In 1993 Chris decided to make the transition to business coaching and became one of the first UK students at Coach University, where he graduated as a certified coach. Recognising the opportunity in the dental profession, 1997 saw the creation of The Dental Business School (DBS) and the development of a 12-month business coaching programme for dental practice owners and their teams, delivered to over 1,000 UK dental practices in the following 10 years.
The first decade of the 21st Century saw Chris in a variety of roles including Non-Executive Directorships as well as continuing his training, consultancy and coaching work for dental corporates, PCTs, dental retailers and, of course, independent practices.
Chris has co-authored Profitable Dental Practice (with Prof. Phil Newsome) and The E-Myth Dentist (with Michael Gerber) and is a prolific contributor to dental journals as well as author of his own e-books and blog since 2004.
His own day to day work as Coach Barrow with The Extreme Business programmes is still focused on strategic coaching with the owners of dental practices and micro-corporates.
