“Excellent yet again. This is the second time I have heard Alex speak, and it is still just as impressive, and the lessons are still just as powerful. Again, the audience has left inspired and fired up”
– Financial Director, Scottish Power, Centrica/BG Group
“I want to thank you for an excellent contribution to the (Leaders) Forum workshop last week. The amount of questions at the end of your talk and the rest of the evening shows how much you provoked thinking and how enjoyable it was. The workshop was a great success as evidenced by feedback from the CD leaders themselves, both verbal and in the ratings at the end. You contributed significantly to this success & we really appreciate your efforts to make this a success. The feedback from your session was very positive and I think everyone will remember your high sea adventures for a long time (and also apply your principles).”
– Anne Brindley, CD Leaders Professional Development, AstraZeneca

Alex has my enormous respect. I have lead teams and facilitated large groups and have never seen it done better.”
– Sharon Callaghan, Manager British Airways Executive Club
“(Alex’s) presentation style is impressive, a mix of adventure stories, hardship, success, setback and the one overriding message that you should never, ever, give up. Alex was an inspiration to our team, and whatever challenges we face there was motivation and techniques to help succeed for all of us.”
– John Mobly, Managing Director, Newnet plc
“Alex was an enthusiastic and engaging speaker, bringing to life the trials and tribulations of the Global Challenge. His talk was very interesting with some great stories and anecdotes. Moreover, he made it relevant to our business need with the theme of “challenge” cleverly interwoven into his talk. The group found him very motivational and took away some useful learnings. A terrific speaker who can be highly recommended.”
– Commercial Analytics Team, GSK
“Alex showed a special combination of practical skills, teaching ability and above all calmness under pressure when leading his team through tough conditions. I would recommend him to anyone who is seeking an exceptional person to help develop leadership and motivational skills as well of course his undoubted ability in a sailing boat.”
– Rob Packham, Deputy Director General, National Crime Squad
