David Barrow – TrusteeD-Barrow_trustee

David is an experienced and valued communications professional, with many years involvement in both the central government and the community and voluntary sectors. He is passionate about technology – especially the web as a key business tool for any organisation.

David has been involved in community sector ICT for some years, focusing on important issues for the sector and getting something done about them.  In this previous role, David promoted several ICT capacity-building initiatives, such as TechSoup NZ, being keen to facilitate awareness about and access to ICT tools to the benefit of all sector groups.

He has more recently been involved in promoting access to and the value of public libraries to our communities.  Libraries nowadays play a crucial part in growing digital literacy in local communities and this activity fits well with the Trust’s ambitions.

He is now back in the government sector in a communications and IT management role working to promote and progress accounting and assurance standards across business, government and not-for-profit sectors.

David sees his role with the Trust as one where he can actively focus on ICT proficiency, access and usage throughout our communities. He has been active in exploring with government and other players ways to grow community sector ICT competence and how problems might be better addressed.

He is also a strong believer in bringing training and skill development opportunities to community organisations and certainly in the communities they serve to ensure digital inclusion for all New Zealanders.
