The PROOF Method™

Barnaby's innovative PROOF Method of Communication Coaching evolved out of his passion for understanding the nuances of cross-cultural communication in English and his eagerness to help professionals find a middle ground of mutual understanding where other methods have failed. His twenty plus years’ experience of training professionals to communicate for success and consulting on academic texts for publication in international indexed journals have shaped Barnaby’s conviction that precise communication is essential to creating a better world. 

"Effective Communication Coaching requires targeted performance, analytical feedback and meaningful rehearsal. The PROOF method delivers this.”

~Barnaby Griffiths


Success Stories

I have worked with Barney for over 20 years and highly recommend his services as a language teacher trainer and communication coach. In his capacity as the former he has observed and trained a large number of our trainees and teachers to the highest level, always receiving outstanding feedback for his approach. As well as knowing how to communicate content in a unique way, he has the ability to inspire real and lasting change in his trainees.

Barney Griffiths has been my English coach and academic article translator for many years, and I am happy to acknowledge that he has contributed greatly to my achievements in the form of academic articles published in magazines of the highest rank in the JCR and Scopus and also in my English classes at the Bachelor’s and Master’s level in the Faculty of Tourism at the University of Girona and other European Universities (Matej Bel in Slovakia, Savonia in Finland, Jagellonski in Poland and Ravensburg in Germany). I would emphasize that none of the academic journals that I have sent articles to with his translation from Catalan into academic English have ever queried the language. And as a coach who has helped me develop my skills in order to teach my classes in English, he has always found the right words to give me confidence, while offering me guidelines to improve my communication, also autonomously.

Working several years with Barney has helped me to improve my English for teaching. His coaching sessions include criteria to practice self-assessment. I have no doubt that the quality of his work as a coach has been a key element in my achieving successful results and fulfilling my personal learning objectives. I fully recommend working with Barney to improve your academic English.

Barney was one of my trainers and assessors during the teaching practice element of my Trinity DipTESOL. His feedback on my lessons was consistently pertinent and very clear and direct - he helped me to see what to change and why and helped me work out how to do it. This is exactly what I - and most trainees - need when wanting to improve specific areas of their teaching in a short space of time.
