Alan Charlesworth, through his business Alakar Consulting, sets the bar for the standard of service your organisation can rely on from a business mentor, in terms of experience, knowledge and commitment. His areas of expertise are turnaround, operational and change management, business development and marketing in both public and private sector organisations.
A chemist by training, Alan has extensive experience as a company managing director, general manager and interim manager for government agencies and blue-chip national and global organisations.
After a long and rewarding career in business, Alan decided to change tack and assist small- and medium-sized organisations to achieve their goals or help them resolve problems or challenges facing their businesses.
He knows what it takes to run a business from personal experience, and has worked at the highest levels of senior management in the private and public sectors. He has practical hands-on experience and fully understands the issues and challenges involved.
Developing and growing a business isn’t easy, least of all in these challenging times. Alan will bring a sympathetic and insightful perspective, drawing on knowledge and expertise gained from his own experience in industry and commerce.
He will, as necessary, explore your hopes and ambitions for your business, as well as your personal aspirations. He’ll also take the time to listen, and won’t be judgmental, he’ll be supportive but not intrusive and he will seek to gain your trust to ensure a productive working relationship.
