My Story

My name is Dwayne Barlow. Dwayne Barlow Media & Marketing Limited represents the next stage of my professional journey. I have been given the opportunity (and challenge) of creating my own media and marketing narrative, one story at a time. My specific areas of expertise are: copywriting, design & layout, marketing & media planning and management, and digital marketing.


Prior to establishing this company I spent 13+ years working for a company called Metso, a Finnish-owned multi-national. I held various marketing, marketing support and communications roles during my time at Metso. For several years I was also part of the senior management team for Metso in New Zealand.

I aim to use the skills I developed in the corporate environment to help select organisations solve their unique media and marketing problems.

Elevator Pitch

Before moving on, here’s the elevator pitch for DBMM…

“DBMM is the ideal partner for small and medium-sized businesses that don’t have a full-time media and marketing resource. We can manage your media and marketing workload so that you can concentrate on what you do best – making your business great.”

Okay, cool. Now several more things of interest…

My Interests

Alongside my family, football and travel are my main interests in life. I have been able to combine both on several occasions, having travelled to two FIFA World Cups (Germany and South Africa) and one Confederations’ Cup (France). I intend adding to this as we meander along. I spent over three years as president of Matamata Swifts Association Football Club, and have also served as club’s Club Development Manager. I am a junior football coach. I am married and my wife and I have two sons and a daughter (who all, no doubt, will become travelling footballers).
