Barbie Clarke

Family Kids and Youth

Managing Director

Barbie set up Family Kids and Youth with a small team of expert researchers nine years ago. An international youth researcher for over 25 years, she was formerly Director of the Family division of GfK NOP. She completed her PhD in child and adolescent psychosocial development at the University of Cambridge where her research looked at early adolescents’ (10-14 year olds) use of digital media. Barbie is a trained child therapist, LEA Governor of a Primary School, and sits on the BBC Children’s Editorial Advisory Board.

Barbie will be a speaker in the Research Session “Mind The Gap – Meeting the Media Needs of 10 – 14’s” and in the session “Facebook Stole My Childhood”
