I’ve spent 30 years focused on agile approaches to business transformation, and the relationship between technology and business innovation in today’s rapidly-evolving digital economy.

Working with Alan has been one of my professional highlights in the last few years. He brings a great blend of expertise, creativity, passion, collaboration and humour to his work.
