Booking Information


"I have been in many remote meetings over the last year, as you can imagine, but never in one which was run so flawlessly and smoothly. Alan’s keynote was a highlight. But he also moderated it with ideal combination of freedom and discipline, and excellent summaries of key points, probing questions and overall superb control. And all technical elements worked very well, including Slido, splits into rooms etc. Great job!"

Mikołaj Józefowicz, Country General Manager, European Recycling Platform

His insight into customer experience and customer thought process is second to none. The timing of his content is excellent, as the world of digital collides with traditional hospitality and customer service more frequently."
