Alan PowerAssociate Consultant at Informa Connect
Throughout his career, Alan has been called upon to be both a leader and a manager so has a clear understanding of the requirements of both roles.
As a Leader, Alan set up several new functions while employed in a major UK bank. For example, he set up the banks first training centre; became the youngest departmental head in the banks history, was the first manager to launch a Quality Management System and used quality management to set up a new mortgage company (which won a national award for Quality Management); and he was the first manager in the bank to adopt the Balanced Scorecard.
As a management development and training professional, Alan qualified as a Leadership Trainer to deliver Action Centred Leadership and has delivered Leadership courses to countless delegates over the years and, with his personal experience as a Leader, his programmes are enriched by his personal experience.
In 2003, Alan left the corporate world to set up his own consultancy specialising in Leadership, Operations Management, Business Excellence, Lean Thinking, Six Sigma and Customer Service Excellence.
