James La Barrie

James La Barrie is passionate about marketing and the skydiving industry. As a former drop zone manager for nine years, La Barrie is the antithesis of most marketing professionals. He doesn't believe that great marketing starts with throwing money at an advertising campaign, but rather implements techniques in word of mouth (womm), social media, company culture and world class branding to create a connection with guests that drive the bottom line. La Barrie is the founder of DropZone.Marketing - a marketing agency for the skydiving industry.
