In May 2020, Canterbury Christ Church university asked Techcentre founder David Barker to produce a video to encourage students during the Covid-19 crisis.
Drawing on his own difficult beginnings in Manchester when he was unemployed at sixteen years old, through to becoming one of the UK’s first Internet entrepreneurs in the early 1990’s, David produced a video highlighting the obstacles he has faced in his career and how having an entrepreneur’s mindset can get you through.
“This is exactly what I needed to hear at these times of helplessness”.

“Just watched your video. So so inspirational. I hope many people who are dreaming just like you get the last push that they need. Everything is possible. Don’t take no from anyone. Keep striving as anything is possible if you put work into it. Thank you for sharing your own challenge”
