He has worked internationally with large organizations as a professional engineer and project manager developing patents and implementing solutions to complex challenge in the mining and metals industry.
Living and working abroad has given Alan the opportunity to deepen his understanding of individual and team challenges, better appreciate cultural diversity and successfully adapt to different organizational structures. Building experience through a lifestyle of adventure and challenge, Alan embarked on the project of a lifetime and set a world record on Mount Everest along with three members of his immediate family. The expedition involved two years of planning and two months of climbing through immense challenges but they were able to overcome these obstacles through strategic planning, healthy team dynamics, self-awareness and perseverance.

Presentation - Inverting your Change Management Strategy
When most of us talk about “change management projects,” we think of them as one-and-done initiatives. That might have been the case in the past, but today–with the capabilities of technology and the ever-changing demands of the global economy– change is a state of being. For innovation and organizational change to be successful, we need to recognize that change management isn’t reserved just for Change Managers. It’s everyone’s job to have the strategies, tactics, skills, and frameworks for making change happen
