Here's what some people I have worked with had to say........
I worked with Alan on improving my business plan and how to take a more strategic approach to developing my business. Alan's previous experience in business gives him credibility and means he has invaluable advice to offer to people in business or starting a new business. Working with Alan gave me an opportunity to step back and review my business plan, in a very focused way.
Alan's approach is a facilitative and coaching approach, so he doesn't just give answers, he helps people to find the right answer for themselves. He is patient and easy to work with but he is also great at keeping you focused on your end goal and challenging you when needed! Alan's skills, approach and experience would be well suited to working with people who are at a cross roads in their business or are starting up a new business.

Alan is a real people person and has the ability to engage with people at all levels and across all sectors. He is an excellent communicator and I have always found him to be open, honest and straightforward and someone who is fun to be around.

I had the greatest privilege of working with Alan and have known him for over 10 years now.. In that time, I have come to appreciate his friendship and his talents as a skilled and very dedicated business leader. His ability to anticipate the needs of a business allows him to add value in virtually every situation that I have encountered.
I find that his counsel is not only indispensable for successful business decision-making; it always adheres to the highest ethical aspirations of his profession when others' may stray. I was immensely impressed with his energy, ability and commercial acumen.
Alan shines in his approach to work and life. He is enthusiastic, creative and switched on and can be relied upon to build and maintain relationships in any business sector.

I engaged with Alan to help with strategic development of Route 2 recruitment given his vast experience of recruitment and business.
Alan listened to what I wanted to achieve in the short and long term and helped devise plans to achieve those goals.
He is passionate about his delivery and those he works with, a pleasure to work with and listens carefully to truly understand your mindset at any given time, I must have frustrated him on more than one occassion.
I am delighted to recommend Alan to any business owner who may be at a crossroad or just needs to bounce ideas.
I can honestly say that Alan has been a great help to my professionally and personal development.
