“I cherished working with Alan to explore not only aspiring to be a better leader, something I think we should and can work on, but also to explore what I was ultimately trying to achieve and what I really wanted out of it deep down. Alan helped give me pause for thought, a structure and gave me helpful support. More than anything he gave me permission to aspire for more and expect more. I enjoyed working with Alan and believe he made a big difference to me as a leader and to me as a business person – I would wholeheartedly recommend working with him.”
