Sean Barrett

 Head of the Origin Foundation


Sean is the inaugural Head of the Origin Foundation, created in 2010 by Origin. The focus of the Foundation is education. This was chosen by the employees of Origin. Sean has had senior roles in the Public, Private, and Non-Government sectors. Immediately prior to his recruitment to the Origin Foundation he worked with a variety of national and international NGOs. Having worked on both sides of the ‘funding fence’ he is acutely aware of the power imbalance between funder and fundee. This was one of the motivators for commissioning Pollinate to develop the PBI: To give Origin Foundation partners a voice.
