Alan’s project management keynotes and workshops highlight the essential processes that are involved in the planning and executing of difficult projects by using the challenge of Everest as a metaphor and example of such a project. The underlying messages are about how we as project managers need to reach new heights in the way we think and the actions we take in order to continuously improve ourselves and to advance our profession. Alan highlights various technical components of project management throughout his programs and shares specific project management tools geared towards strategic management, technical skills and leadership.
Alan Mallory is an international speaker, author and professional development coach who is passionate about leadership and human performance. A graduate from Queen's University, he has worked internationally with large organizations as a professional engineer and project manager. Living and working abroad has given Alan the opportunity to deepen his understanding of individual and team challenges, better appreciate cultural diversity and successfully adapt to different organizational structures. Through his work and life experiences, he has discovered that his true passion is helping people reach new heights by cultivating effective ways of thinking and taking action.Building experience through a lifestyle of adventure and challenge, in the spring of 2008 Alan embarked on the journey of a lifetime: to attempt to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Along with three members of his immediate family, Alan climbed through some of the most challenging yet exciting conditions imaginable and set a world record when all four of them set foot on the summit. The expedition involved two years of planning and two months of climbing through immense challenges but they were able to overcome these obstacles through strategic planning, healthy team dynamics, selfawareness and perseverance. Alan delivers a number of exciting presentations and training programs designed to help individuals, team members and organizations reach new heights in the way we think and the actions we take in order to achieve breakthrough performance.
Alan’s dynamic presentation focuses on developing leaders and strengthening project teams by reinforcing the professional development and project management skills that are essential for success in any project. It highlights the processes, tools and project stages that are involved in planning and executing difficult projects by using the challenge of Everest as an example of such a project.
