It was a pleasure to work with Alistair over several months; I benefited from his energy, insight, friendly yet challenging perspective and real world experience. I would recommend him strongly.
I have worked with Alistair for 5 years – an invigorating experience My view of how to manage my career has evolved for the better with Alistair’s help. I am now much more confident about the future, about my abilities and about how to deal with ambiguity.
Alistair’s tremendous listening skills and ability to pull insights from an organization helped us enormously leverage the assets we were able to bring to our Clients’ business. He has a creatively distinct way of conceptualizing issues and opportunities.
What I particularly liked was the way I was given space to formulate ideas and crystallize my thinking with Alistair playing a crucial enabling role..
He’s much focused, smart, a great listener, both diplomatic and direct, as well a being a very good lateral thinker. He has an ability to look big picture as well as help with the detail, as appropriate.
However thinking back what he gave me was some space to reflect and reach clarity on a way forward.
It prompted me to do all that I could to cash in my chips while still ahead of the game. I was very successful in achieving this. We completed the sale on the Friday of the week before Northern Rock’s difficulties became public, mostly for cash, so you could say it was timed to perfection.
I feel my business has taken a quantum leap forward in the time we have worked together
I believe that his product is unique. His approach is wonderfully charismatic and his thinking is extremely broad – he gets the highest praise from me
Alistair is a great listener but rigorous in that we faced the issues honestly and completely. He manages to encouraging, open environment with powerful focus. He always can disentangle the important form the trivial. Our programme was a success and was implemented fully and within the timeframe.
