How do you create sustainable innovation?

How do teams and organizations create the Masterpiece they were born to create?

How do you get your team, organization or audience to think differently?

My keynotes are designed to answer these questions and many more.

My expertise is in creativity, innovation and change.

My experience as an extreme artist informs and infuses every speech.

Each painting tells a story - painting at over 3,000 metres, in 70km/h winds, in a blizzard.

Imagine what it takes to remain in the creative zone when the paint starts to freeze.

These are the types of insights I bring to life through my keynote speeches.

I am meticulous with my preparation and inspirational with my delivery.

If you haven't heard me talk yet, now is as good a time as any... it's time to think different!

I have spoken all over the world, at UN meetings, corporate retreats and international conferences. I am an extreme artist and creative mentor. I help everyone think differently about creativity, innovation and change. My research, painting in the mountains, in extreme conditions informs and infuses each talk. My style is inspiring, provocative and action-oriented.  I make people laugh, cry and most of all take action.

Alex had one mission, to help our team become the change engine for Samsung Europe. Not an easy task by any means. He stripped back the team to understand ourselves on a 1:1 personal level using many tools to unearth our strengths and ultimately our Life's Purpose. From that he brought our team together and created an understanding on the teams collective strengths and how we complimented each other and the potential we have if we worked together leveraging each others strengths. We finally then created a team vision and purpose that was born out of our strengths and what we believe the future could hold.

Alex has a particular gift to connect with people’s deep energy and is able to help them to radically shift perspectives and to realize, articulate and express their vision, tapping into an impressively diverse body of knowledge and techniques. What in my view makes Alex different from other coaches is the positive energy he infuses into the person he works with and the determination he has to help her to identify and recognize the Life Purpose and to work out together a plan of action, as opposed to just providing listening and frameworks for the person to progress on her own.

Mario Musa, Head of Communications EIF, World Trade Organization

Alex masters innovation from the inside out. He understands how people work, what stops them and how to unlock their potential. I have known Alex for over 15 years, during which time we’ve worked on a number of groundbreaking projects for some of the world’s leading organisations. Last year he started to coach me through an important transition in my life. He helped me articulate my personal vision and gain clarity over the next step in my career… moving from Director of one company to CEO of another company. I work in an incredibly fast-moving industry, advising CEOs of major bluechip companies on their vision and how to communicate it effectively.
