Watch Alistair’s Introduction
What Clients Say
As CEO of Wheatsheaf Group I have worked with Alistair for the last 4 years. I find him insightful, supportive, totally trustworthy and uncompromising in his challenge. He combines the role of facilitator and CEO coach in a unique and effective way, gaining the trust of my leadership team and the CEO’s of our portfolio companies without hiding his much closer and more personal relationship with me as CEO. Alistair cuts through the fluff. Being clear about your purpose, vision, mission and strategy is vital but of no value unless you (and your leadership team) make it happen in a way which creates value for the business. I have no doubt that Alistair is playing an important role in our success.
Building a successful business is a roller coaster experience and there are few people who understand the unique pressures on the CEO. Alistair is one of them and he has been an invaluable sounding board, working closely with me from the formation of TDX to its successful sale in 2014. He continues to play an equally valuable role with the Partners and our CEOs at Blenheim Chalcot, one of Europe’s leading Venture Builders.
Alistair has been a great personal sounding board and strong support in our journey to becoming a high performing Leadership Team. He uses an effective leadership framework, but more importantly his focus is always on the quality of the interaction and the action that follows from it.
Hilary and Alistair combine extremely well to support the leadership team. They have been an important part of creating and following through on our Leadership Agenda which has undoubtedly resulted in better business performance.
Alistair first worked as my mentor and coach when I ran the Home Business of M&S. Since I took over the leadership of Mars Petcare UK he also works with my Executive Team. He combines the two roles effortlessly, acting as a mirror and ratchet for our performance. I find his insights on leadership and way of working; unique, insightful and most of all practical.
