Alistair has been helping individuals, teams and organisations deliver outstanding person-centred results for over 20 years in both the UK and Australia.
Get the Why
My passion for working with people started in one of Scotland’s toughest communities as a youth worker and has developed through senior management and teaching roles in the not-for-profit, education, local government and social enterprise sectors across the UK and Australia.
Over the last 20 years, I have seen the best of people and the worst of people and the organisations and communities that support and nurture them.
Get the How
Successful individuals and teams value and respect themselves and each other. They find meaning and purpose in what they do and build from a place of trust. I learned these universal and simple truths personally teaching in a maximum-security prison, walking the streets with vulnerable young people, teaching high achieving university students, headteachers and business leaders.
I specialise in joining the lived experience of the individual with evidence-backed ideas in social psychology, behavioural science and human relations. I love to create engaging, immersive and no-nonsense learning experiences online and in person.
Get the Who
Alongside my career, I spent 10 years as a local authority Councillor. I am a founding member of the Tartan Army Children’s charity, Kiltwalk and have served on many local and national non-exec boards including the BBC Children in Need advisory committee.
I am a reluctantly retired football and hockey player, keen goalkeeper coach, road cyclist and mountain biker. I’m an enthusiastic traveller, love great company, good Gin, fine food and loud electronic music.
