Welcome to my blog! Let me introduce myself, I am Alf and widely known as Dr Alf! I am passionate about People, Networking, Politics and Travel.
In 2011, a number of important things happened to me. Firstly, in February I started blogging. Secondly I became rather angry with political leaders and started sharing my views on political news. Thirdly I grew tired of my twenty year career as an independent consultant. So my fourth action was to draw the line and retire from mainstream professional life. This culminated in the fifth decision to leave the UK, base myself in Cyprus with my wife and to travel extensively for a number of years. My wife and I are now in the process of re-inventing ourselves, travelling and writing.
Here is a quick bio recap.
Expert in delivering strategic change – former clients included UNESCO, multi-nationals & government departments. Executive, Consultant, Coach, Researcher & Author. Retired mainstream but still happy to share expertise.
Prior to becoming independent, I had a successful board level career in financial & general management in major multi-nationals. Professionally, I am a Chartered Accountant and a Doctor of Business Administration. I have published two books, sold Worldwide and a number of journal articles.
The purpose of this blog is to share my views and perspectives on the subjects that are of passionate interest to me. It is hoped that the blog will broadly encourage greater reflection and insight. The blog will use a mix of original and secondary material frequently just adding my two cents worth to a major news story.
I hope that you enjoy my blogs and would very much welcome your feedback and suggestions for improvement
