Alan founded his business in 1993 after a successful career in Sales, Sales Management, and Training. His business as a Professional Speaker and Business Coach has grown over the last thirteen years, turning “adequate” managers, sales and customer service people into consistent top performers.
Alan is also the author of four e-books in the “How to Get More Sales” series.
He is now focussed on speaking to Business Owners, Managers and Team Leaders about how to grow their business by building successful teams.
Areas of Expertise
Alan held positions such as Sales Engineer, Regional Manager, Training Manager, and General Sales Manager. A total of twenty-seven years was spent in sales and management.
Alan believes passionately in the need for personal communication skills training whether to deal with a customer, colleague or member of staff. There is normally insufficient focus on these skills as there is a general belief that product knowledge, business skills and an adherence to policies and procedures will produce business success. He believes that it has become increasingly important for organisations to improve interactions with their internal and external customers so ensuring a competitive advantage.
Developing skills in Management, Leadership and Motivation requires a change in mindset. This is more likely to occur successfully when participants are relaxed, non-threatened and enjoy the event. Alan strives to ensure this happens.
Alan’s strengths as a Speaker and Seminar Leader lie in his depth of knowledge across business sectors coupled with energy, enthusiasm and sensitivity to participant needs. He is also conscious of the need to satisfy the client organisation’s business objectives.
