I founded TA Barker Associates in 2018.
My associates and I have extensive experience in working with executives, managers and individual team members in the three P’s – People, Productivity and Profitability.
We are a training and consultancy business specialising in Coaching & Training for Executives, New Managers, Supervisors and Team Leaders and Corporate Social Responsibility.
With over 30 years of experience in the Construction, Retail, Recruitment, Professional Services, Charity, Public Sector, Training, Education, Supply Chain, Overseas Trading and Hospitality industries.
I’ve worked with TA Barker Associates on a number of initiatives including collaborating on a CSR forum and Tracy-Anne has also delivered Management training to our business. She is a knowledgeable, professional individual with a wealth of experience who is able to engage and work efficiently with any target audience. We look forward to working with her in the future.
The Managing Remote Working session run by TA Barker Associates was delivered in an easy to understand way, with time to reflect upon afterwards. The ideas were very interesting, some of which we can introduce. The ability to discuss and feedback ideas that would suit our organisations best was good. I scored the session as Excellent.
We have enjoyed an effective working relationship with Tracy-Anne for over five years. When a client approached us to complete a substantial project Tracy-Anne was an obvious fit for our project team. A consummate professional, Tracy-Anne also added value to the project through coaching client team members to understand and use data to inform decision making. The project was completed on-time, within budget and received positive client feedback. I would not hesitate to engage Tracy-Anne for future client work
Working with TA Barker Associates has been amazing! I’ve attended an amazing CSR Forum as well as hearing Tracy-Anne present with clarity and vision at another recent event. All very informative.
TA Barker Associates are professional, personable, knowledgeable and instinctively understood the aims and objectives of the project and exceeded expectations
I’m the CEO of a global software company listed on the AIM stock exchange and I’ve been working with Tracy-Anne from TA Barker Associates for the last 9 months. At the end of 2019 I felt overwhelmed by the enormity of the workload I had with regards to growing the company and making it a huge success whilst balancing this with family commitments. Someone suggested that I look at hiring a coach to help me with this and I engaged with Tracy-Anne. Tracy-Anne has been an amazing coach over the last 9 months and has helped with all manner of challenges. From the business perspective, she’s made me accountable to do all the things I needed to do including making some very difficult decisions. She has also helped me become more organised so I can optimise my time from both a business and personal perspective. I could go on with a huge list but in essence, I have found that working with Tracy-Anne has enabled me to get the right ‘tool kit’ in place to deal with anything that business or life throws at me.
Tracy-Anne is currently my mentor; helping me to develop my strategic development and management skills. My sessions with Tracy-Anne are well structured and in line with agreed SMART targets agreed at the start of my mentoring programme. I am encouraged to direct my own learning in which Tracy-Anne takes role of facilitator. Her guidance & mentoring are invaluable and in a few sessions my confidence and knowledge in my ability to think strategically had increased. I also welcome Tracy-Anne’s pragmatic approach to my sessions; providing me with practical ways to develop my skills and in line with my preferred learning style. I highly recommend Tracy-Anne.
The course was excellent and I really enjoyed learning more about peoples attitudes and the ways to manage other people
Sometimes, when you’re in the middle of it, it’s hard to know where to start. Running a business, doing all the things required to make it grow is a bit like a bowl of noodles – finding the start of the noodle is key to success but it’s also difficult! Tracy-Anne helps me find the start of the noodle so I can help my business grow! Working with her, I gain clarity on what my next steps need to be so I can work through them progressively. She helps me work through challenges and gives me practical advice on how to handle pricing, tricky situations, awkward clients, etc. I’m so pleased I found her, I’m sure my business would not be as far forward as it is today. She holds me accountable and gives me confidence to move forward. Everyone in business needs a Tracy-Anne!
I enjoyed the course very much, the three things I will implement are, not to micro-manage, confirming check in points with staff, staff language and training. My employees thoroughly enjoyed the experience and have already put into practiced a lot of what they learnt. I am very pleased with the personal touch and obvious passion that TA Barker Associates has for its clients. Thank you so much for the workshop.
