"Alan is a fantastic speaker, with a vast amount of practical, yes practical, knowledge.
In fact, I learned more in the first half hour of his presentation, than I did by reading a dozen Sales / Marketing books.
Most important, however, is the fact that Alan does not simply, speak for the sake of speaking, he actually, “goes out of his way”, to make certain the audience really gets the gist of his presentation."
