Chris Barrow has been active as a consultant, trainer and coach to the UK dental profession for over 23 years. Chris spent the first 17 years of his working life in the corporate sector and followed this with 32 years of running small private businesses. The different dynamics of both worlds have given him the valuable gift of knowing how to operate – and communicate – in both.
In 1993, Chris decided to make the transition to from financial services to business coaching and became one of the first UK students at Coach University, from where he graduated as a certified coach.
Recognizing 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 program for dental practice owners and their teams, delivered to over 1000 UK dental practices in the following 10 years.
As a sought-after public speaker, he is dynamic, energetic and charismatic. As a writer, his blog enjoys a strong following and he is a regular contributor to the dental press.
Chris is an advisor to the dental charity Bridge2Aid.
In 2014 he appeared as a “castaway” in the first season of the popular reality TV show “The Island with Bear Grylls”.
His main professional focus now is through his Extreme Business company, providing coaching and mentorship to independent dentistry around the world via face to face meetings, a workshop programme and an online learning platform.
