When he's at corporate events, Alan is known to cover the following topics

  • Dare to Change - For all sorts of reasons such as mergers, acquisitions, globalisation, competition, Brexit and other political challenges - more and more organisations want to better understand how to cope with ‘change’ and what it means for their culture. Every single organisation is going through some change. And instead of keynotes on leadership or innovation, change is all-embracing.
  • Premium is the New Black - Alan's debut book has prompted organisations to reconsider how they put the customer at the heart of all decision making. After all, differentiating on product alone doesn’t cut it anymore. In almost all industries they know that customer experience is the new competitive battleground.
  • The Retail Apocalypse and Fake News - Retail is the one sector that is experiencing more disruption than any other. Although e-commerce is growing, it does not herald the demise of bricks and mortar retailers. It’s simply ‘Darwin-ism’ at work - bad retailers are closing. The survivors of the future are those that adapt their retail model to a new world. (This particular keynote is not just for retailers – as brand owners also have a vested interest)

I am proud to say that I have witnessed Alan delivering outstanding seminars, presentations and small group development sessions and rarely have I experienced such a captivating leader and presenter. He has the unique talent of holding his audience in the palm of his hand and his extensive retail knowledge and experience is second to none. - Alshaya Group
