Barrett was recognized for his ability to clearly present technical claim information in the Claims Conference sessions that he volunteers to teach.  Scott Powell, Vice President, Educational and Technical Services for the PLRB, noted that Barrett focuses on what is important, rather than merely presenting more information in his sessions.  As a presenter, Barrett clearly and succinctly presents complex claim material to include definitions and good examples of new concepts or terms. 


Most importantly, observed Powell, Barrett is never satisfied with his past performance.  He works hard to improve the training for each topic and at each Conference.  His handout materials are practical, relevant, and designed so they can be passed on to others who need the information.


Finally, Powell saluted Barrett for his enthusiasm and the humor he injects into each session.
