Testimonials

Here is what people say about working with me…

Alan was a true inspiration to work with, he has not only the ability to deliver designs that exceed expectations but is able to rapidly grasp the most complex scenario and deliver a fast and effective solution exceeding expectations. Alan is also extremely personable and gives everything to any project he is involved with. I can’t recommend Alan highly enough, I have learned so much from working with him and hope to have the pleasure to do so again in the future.

Jo Collins

Director, lastminute.com

I worked closely with Alan on many projects at lastminute.com and was always impressed with his user centered approach to design, which he managed to balance well with commercial requirements.

In addition, Alan’s very visible design process was a great example of leading by example as the team was moving towards a more Agile product development approach.

Jespe Garde

Lead Product Designer, Marks and Spencer

It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Alan. We worked together for two years at lastminute.com and during that time I was always awe by Alan’s ability to lead his team and get people onboard, even stakeholders who were initially on complete different pages.

I highly recommend Alan for any position requiring bringing new ideas to the table and the leadership to make them come to life.

Always a pleasure working with him
