Barbara Geoghegan


New Resident Manager Consultant

Barbara has had 14 years’ experience in Management Rights in both a family Permanent building and her own Holiday building and industry wide Permanent buildings. Prior to Management Rights, Barbara had a business in Management Consulting and Team Building in large organisations. Consultancies included two consultancies to the government of Taiwan in policy and training and development. Other clients ranged between large government organisations and small to medium sized businesses.

In the Management Rights field, Barbara discovered through personal experiences as a new owner of a holiday building, a big gap in support available for new managers.  Specifically, in the area of systems and processes which when implemented make the business run to its optimum standard.  Barbara now specialises in training and supporting new managers to help them in the confusing and sometimes difficult early days and until they’re settled in to the business.
