Talking Beauty

Beautiful talks that change the way people think about business.

I deliver talks that change the way people understand and think about their business. Both inspirational and instructional, my talks encourage people to discover more innovative and productive ways of working.

By demonstrating that everything is designed, I show people where to find opportunities for improving, growing and beautifying their business.

Some of my previous talks have been for The Hay Literature Festival, The Do Lectures, SXSW, Microsoft, Google, IBM, WPP, The Brazilian Bankers Association, Husqvarna, Sogeti, Filippa K, Music Television and HP, as well as for business schools including MIT and Sloan School of Management.

Whether at an intimate event, an away day, a conference or a team get together, I help people tune up their business to become beautiful and profitable

The beginning of a beautiful future starts with a beautiful talk.

What fellow travellers say

‘Alan is the best I know in describing, if not predicting, why the future of business looks the way it does, and knowing what it means. But more than that, he knows how to apply that connective insight and knowledge. Alan would be invaluable to any company exploring ‘what next?’ means to them and what they might do about it. Especially if they wanted to make it beautiful’.

‘I love working with Alan. He is dangerous, disruptive and difficult. These are rare qualities. He asks the difficult questions and disrupts what you think is right. In a world where you are just getting to grips with what is happening Alan will be dealing with what happens next.

I never come away comfortable after a chat with Alan, I am always motivated and excited – there’s dangerous for you!’
