“Simon is a positive, tenacious individual with both corporate experience, running large departments, and yet also working with startups to help them do more of the right things more often.

As a startup co-founder, I have found Simon to be a generous listener and sounding board, having solid down to earth advice about practical business decisions to be made.

He has added stability across our team and given a new dimension to the team in terms of making better, more grounded business decisions.

I am happy to recommend Simon to new contacts, he is well suited to a mentoring role, which can be invaluable to a startup running as fast as possible to stay still.”

I had the pleasure of working with Simon at both Interactive Data and ACTIV Financial and found him to be knowledgeable, responsive and meticulous. Simon is a credible resource and the information and guidance he provided was always accurate and comprehensive. Any organization that has the opportunity to work with Simon will quickly regard him as one of their most valued employees

I have known Simon Barry for approximately 17 months, we met when we were looking for a business mentor to help us take our post revenue web start-up to the next level of growth.

From the very start, Simon proved a clear thinking and knowledgeable advisor.  More to the point he was supportive and very encouraging, so much so that even when things were challenging he gave one the strength to strive for more and have belief in our idea.  

This was a very refreshing experience. I had met with two other possible mentors before choosing Simon. With him I felt a positive vibe, and that together we could build our business.

The real success of his mentorship over the year we worked together (stopped only by the Coronavirus effect on our travel sector business) was that through his encouragement, guidance and help in our strategic review and analysis were we able to double our sales revenue in that year. He galvanised our team to work better together. That is his secret weapon. He gets more out of you than you think you can deliver.

Simon’s real skills delivered, as he enabled us as a team to focus on our real strengths. With his encouragement, we planned to explore new markets and avenues where our strengths could become strong foundation stones for our nascent business.

And best of all, he is a lovely guy to work with.

Simon likes to work on things and make them perfect! He is an extremely hardworking individual who has an excellent grasp of operations and, as a member of his Board of Advisors, I have enjoyed providing the advice he needs for his tasks to make Socialite.me as perfect as possible. Simon is the type of individual who will ensure a smooth unveiling of an exquisite product. As COO of Socialite.me, Simon is an outstanding right-hand man to his CEO. I recommend Simon for all endeavours and I look forward in continuing my work for Simon as he builds Socialite.me into a world-class organization

I have been fortunate to work with Simon at two different companies Activ and Interactive Data. Simon is a highly motivated individual with excellent skills in the arena of Data Quality. He is unique in his ability to understand data sets both from a development perspective and relating that to business needs. This knowledge extends over a wide range of content from exchange based market data to more complex OTC market data, such as Fixed Income and FX, as well as corporate actions and reference data.
