Testimonials from previous lectures

What an absolutely awesome talk that was today from Kimadale Platts. Words alone cannot express how eloquent, fluent, informative, inspiring and humble she was throughout the 50 mins or so that she spoke. I assume she was speaking note-free and for sure from experience and ‘the heart’. An absolute gem.

Duncan McLaughlin

Refreshing, Enlightening and a reaffirmation of the presentation that i have previously seen.

Geoff Jones

Thank you very much Peter! My take away is about clarifying what you sell and to whom you sell to.

Owen Nwanebu

Social Capital is very crucial in recruiting RDs and members. Thank you, Erica, for a fantastic presentation!

Japh Olende
Many thanks, Erica, a very timely topic! We start losing our connections and tend to forget that as humans beings we are social and it allowed our early ancestors to survive and prosper in harsh environments. Through the 20th and the 21st centuries we become the ego-driven and individualistic societies and underestimated and undervalued social capital’s importance. Time to restore it to allow our societies and modern economies to function efficiently. Believe there is a great power behind the shared values, norms, trust, and belonging.
Olga Gorobets

Mark Woodhouse

Thank you very much , Barbara, for the very passionate , energetic and alive presentation! The topic is very critical and you act as a strong advocate for it.
The increasing speed of changes today, all other kinds of uncertainty make us over excited and overwhelmed. The only way is to achieve higher states of consciousness and revive our lost connections.

29TH JUNE, 1PM – 2PM GMT+1


The Alpha Group Foresight Series

We’re all looking down the barrel of the most unprecedented business challenge we’ve ever faced.

Simply working hard may help our companies survive but won’t help us thrive. We have to work hard and smart. We need to integrate best practice for today and for tomorrow.

The world’s largest businesses all started during various kinds of economic downturn. Yours can thrive during this one if you’re agile, innovative and you collaborate.

The Alpha Group Foresight Lectures will look at the fundamental factors making your business robust, agile and successful no matter what’s thrown at you.

Now is the time to be brave and embrace this disturbance and create your own business disruption.

If we look at our feet, we shine our shoes. If we look at the sky, we go to the stars.
