Phil Barber has actively participated in producing and managing corporate events for over 25 years. Laying the groundwork for his life's work, Barber managed and booked engagements for high school bands when he was just 14 years old. His childhood hobby became his passion at the University of Tennessee where, as a member of the university's Campus Entertainment Board, he produced major concerts on campus.

Barber & Associates is one of the nation's leading entertainment and special events management sources, with a staff of agents touting more than one hundred years of combined experience organizing the vast details associated with creating successful events. The company specializes in booking corporate comedy, motivational speakers, celebrity musical entertainment, sports celebrities, technology gurus, business and political leaders for a variety of corporate meetings, industry conferences, and private engagements worldwide.

Known for his straight-talking, trend-predicting, conventional manner, Phil Barber was appointed to serve a two-year term on the International Entertainment Buyers Association (IEBA) Board of Directors.
