Brett Callaghan – a professional thoroughbred horse racing jockey from 1989 – 1998, and who has been the founding manager and director of Totally Barbados (2005 to the current date), continues to be innovative in promoting the island of Barbados.
“We relaunched a new website built from the ground up, on November 22nd, 2016, and now cater to all mobile devices, cell phones, tablets, iPad’s and desktop devices.”
The team continues to provide Google map locations of many events and activities within the Totally Barbados Events Calendar Guide.
The brainchild of Totally Barbados is 46-years-old (2020) Brett Callaghan, a famous former jockey from the Garrison Savannah racetrack in Barbados and at Woodbine racetrack in the Canadian city of Toronto.
After retiring from the horse racing game as a professional jockey of 10 years, Brett returned to school in Toronto when he was 24 years old to study and earn his certificate as a qualified Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE). Upon receiving this document, Brett worked at CIBC Mortgages Inc. in Toronto for the next six years.
Brett quit his job as a Senior Technical Analyst with CIBC Mortgages in Toronto, Canada, in March 2005 to embark on his vision to develop a Barbados Island Guide. Brett envisioned a website covering every topic, angle, and every aspect of anything anyone would want to know about the island.

Even with the existing websites covering various topics about Barbados, Brett thought it vital to encompass all aspects of Barbadian life. It would appeal to visitors and locals that run the gamut from booking their vacations, building a home, establishing a business, and investing in the economy.
This website was to be ‘totally’ about Barbados.
Totally Barbados includes features such as the local time, weather, a weekly newsletter, upcoming social events and locations of the top places to eat in Barbados.
After only one year and ten months in existence on the web promoting everything, there is to know about Barbados, Totally Barbados was a finalist in the Barbados Tourism Awards 2007 and finished within the top 3 companies in Barbados that supports the Tourism Industry.
Totally Barbados received the 14th Annual World Travel Awards 2007 for “The Caribbean’s Leading Overall Travel Information Website” at the gala ceremony in the Turks & Caicos Islands.
