Graham Barnes is Shine’s Senior Trainer and coordinates the DVFREE workplace project. Trained as a teacher, Graham has a BSW, and has worked to stop domestic violence for 30 years. In Aotearoa/NZ, he set up the first men’s stopping violence programmes, then worked on a national inter-agency pilot in Hamilton, based on the world-leading Duluth model. Moving to Minnesota in 2001, he worked in Duluth, then in Auckland with Shine, developing a workplace domestic violence project. In May 2016 he returned from 13 years of national technical assistance work for the Battered Women’s Justice Project in US.
Shine was founded in 1990, and since then it has grown to become the largest domestic abuse prevention service that is registered as a charitable trust in New Zealand.
Shine is an acronym that stands for Safer Homes in New Zealand Everyday.“The name of the organisation is hopeful, optimistic and positive, reflecting its values, objectives and services. It conveys the attitude of the people who work in the organisation and what it achieved. These are tough times and family violence is a grim issue – on both counts, the country needs to feel that a light is shining on a terrible problem and that some brightness is coming.”
For most of Doug's life, he was a victim of my his thinking. Being diagnosed with multiple learning disabilities as a child, he thought he had a good excuse. He was told he wasn't stupid, he just didn't learn like the other kids.
As a result, Doug puts 100% of his focus on basketball. He had a great high school career but struggled in college due to, well, excuses. That all changed when he crossed paths with Sarah (his academic advisor) who disrupted his pattern and caused him to take a deeper look at himself and what he was capable of. That semester, he went from a 1.4 to a 3.4 and never looked back.
He have dedicated his life to giving others the same gift Sarah gave him.
In 2014, his wife and him founded Kendall Douglas LLC. The company gives them the ability to Speak, Coach and train people to realize their best self.
In 2015, Doug became a certified Dale Carnegie instructor and facilitate the Skills for Success course in the Raleigh/Durham market. Dale Carnegie Training has been instrumental in his personal development and it is an honor to watch people's life change as they interact with the course.
In 2016, he was honored to give his 1st TEDx Talk in Raleigh, NC. Having the opportunity to share his personal story of mentorship has made him even more intentional as he pursue his mission.
Doug is also the Director of Training for MEGA Group USA & curator of The MEGA Business Academy. With over 1700 retail members, MEGA is dedicated to helping independent retailers in the Furniture, Appliance and Bedding industry thrive.
