LinkedIn Recommendations

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

Alan was a fantastic hire for lastminute.com and his joining the company represented a major step forward in the overall performance of the UX team. Alan brought with him a wealth of digital experience, a natural ease and authority at all levels of the organisation, and an infectious enthusiasm for creative, collaborative user-focused design.

David Thwaites

Senior User Experience Manager, Vodafone Group Enterprise

A pro-active and genuinely user focused designer who used a combination of lab’ research and solid commercial awareness to effect real change in his team.

Alan instigated and subsequently led several effective user research sessions that continue to inform our product design.

A pleasure to work with.

Neil Dare-Williams

Group Design Director, Bravofly Rumbo Group

Alan is an incredibly diligent and considerate UX lead. He invests time and thought into each project, is results driven and connects well with users.

Grace Francis

Head of Content and UX (Partner), Isobar

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

Though Alan was in a different department to me, when our paths crossed I found him to be enthusiastic, smart and friendly and willing to work together to find the optimum solution. He understands that the correct combination of UX, research and design will create the best outcome for the customer and the business.

Alan is and will be a credit to any organization.

Piers Elton

Senior Digital Project Manager, Tag Worldwide (a DHL Company)

Very rarely you meet UXers who have REAL extensive experience in conducting research, interaction design, developing clean visual language and know how to dabble in a bit of HTML. I was very lucky to have met, and the absolute pleasure to have worked with one.

Alan, is one of those Super UXers that all companies need – yes he’s amazing at all the things that make a GREAT designer. But where he shone most was his infectious positivity and ability to influence his peers and stakeholders. This should make the back-bone of all UXers; something that is Alan’s strongest traits.

Next time a PM or Project Leader says they need a UX designer, what they actually mean is they need an Alan.

I look forward to the opportunity of working with Alan again in the near future.

Ozaif Ibrahim

UX Lead, Odecee

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

Gabriel Dominguez

UX Manager, Royal Mail

Alan was a pleasure to work with.
He always was very professional, dedicated, friendly and always willing to help others.

He was striving to understand the business needs to offer different options that would address these needs as well as liaise with the different teams – technical (developers and testers), Web analytics, and managers alike to ensure he could deliver the right solution taking into account all the possible challenges.

It was fun and a delight to work with him thanks to his humour and motivation to find the best possible approach.

Chris Cokson

European Programme Manager, Egencia, an Expedia company

Alan is a motivated and intelligent user experience professional who was easy to communicate with and brought informed and practical opinions to all aspects of the product lifecycle. As a Product Owner i appreciated his passion for user research and testing both operating our inhouse usability and insights lab but also an active leader in getting teams out of the building conducting customer research. He is a keen practitioner of agile UX and often paired with developers to ensure new user features were executed with the customer voice in mind but also combing developer insights to ensure it was delivered to our “minimum viable product” culture. I highly recommend Alan to anyone looking for UX leadership.
