Academic & Professional Testimonials

Barry’s keynote speech was impressive. Although speaking without manuscript, his speech was perfectly structured and very relevant to the occasion and the audience. He presented his key messages and his advice for graduates in a most convincing and charming way. It was a real pleasure listening to him. Professor Gilbertson is a really outstanding speaker.

The seminar was excellent: entertainingly delivered and insightful. Barry clearly articulated his views on what to sell and what to hold through the downturn. It was a very valuable perspective.

Professor Barry Gilbertson has a unique ability….it is a rarity in today’s academic world…he has the talent to enthuse. His recent speech delivered at this July’s MBA International Real Estate graduation ceremony, at Schloss Ummendorf, Germany was, to put it simply, a tour de force. It was the best speech since the MBA began some 10years ago.

Barry’s approach to strategic problems begins with penetrating insight but is followed through with careful and relevant analysis and concludes with compelling presentations. Throughout this process he carefully develops the confidence and trust of the client.

Barry Gilbertson was the Master of Ceremonies at the College of Estate Management annual diploma presentation ceremony on Saturday 9 July 2011. He led these important, and formal, proceedings with ease, and his humorous asides made the event more memorable! His control of the whole event was of the highest standard, and there is no doubt that his professional approach lent added enjoyment to the day, for Diplomates, Trustees, staff and for the general family audience.
