It’s about experience…

LaValley Learning draws on Barry LaValley’s fourty-plus years as a Global educator, coach, sales trainer and relationship manager.  His work with clients around the world has given him a unique perspective and validation of his ideas.

It’s about human understanding…

The training provided is evidence-based and focused on how people think, act and make decisions.  Not only will students understand the psychology behind the approach that Barry LaValley takes, but will be given the tools to build their own plans.  All courses seek to explain ‘why’ rather than ‘what’.

It’s about passion..

Our passion is about sharing.  LaValley Learning seeks to reach out through its online courses, seminars, books and communications to help all who want to live a better life or help others who want to coach them to succeed.

We have delivered coaching programs to thousands of people around the world and on behalf of some of the largest institutions and educational organizations.


  • An experience-based approach backed by the science of human understanding

  • A relatable communications style that fosters learning and provokes thought

  • Multiple tools within our courses to promote learning

  • A leading-edge focus on relating ideas for tomorrow rather than tired approaching that worked yesterday

Barry LaValley

Hi, I'm Barry LaValley and I am pleased that you've stopped by Barry LaValley Learning.

I've coached and educated financial advisers for close to 40 years. After graduating from the University of Alberta in 1974, I entered the Canadian Financial services industry; in that time I've been an adviser, senior Mutual funds executive and educator.

My formal education concentrated on Psychology and a focus on how we think, act and make decisions. This has become the foundation of the work that I do today.

The achievements I'm most proud of are my tens of thousands of happy clients, firms and advisers around the globe and my books which have been published in 6 countries.

I look forward to seeing in you in one of the courses here on Barry LaValley Learning!
