Allan M.'s Profile

Highly sought after, coach, trainer, author and speaker
Allan is a much sought after, coach, trainer, author and speaker who specialises in supporting and enabling organisations to develop their teams to high performance and to develop managerial "people development" skills such as managerial coaching and team leadership. His simple but highly effective approach to training and coaching managers and teams is done via his branded courses, 'Brand New Manager!' and 'TeamBuilder!' He is the founder of 'The Brand New Manager Academy' a dedicated development centre for the training new managers, team leaders and supervisors and the invigoration of existing managers.

Added to this he supports organisations to implement motivational and productive performance management processes and coaching programmes. Supporting the development of internal company coaches is a particular passion having been one of the first pharmaceutical industry internal coaches at Glaxo Pharmaceuticals (UK) in 1993.

Allan has worked with employees and teams from international companies such as GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca, Sanofi-Aventis, Janssen-Cilag, Thyssenkrupp Automotive, Thyssenkrupp Elevator, Goodrich Aerospace, Vickers Pressings and Takeda as well as numerous local and national organisations within the United Kingdom, including professional rugby union teams, the Newcastle Falcons and Glasgow Warriors.

After nineteen years in the UK pharmaceutical industry and with the last six of these, being spent as one of GlaxoSmithKline’s Management Coaching team, he decided to set up his own business in May 2001 in order to bring the power of teams and performance coaching to management within organisations.

To support his work he has become an accomplished facilitator and conference speaker and became a published author for the first time in 2003, with the launch of his first published book, "The Successful Coaching Manager." At the time of writing this profile, two new books, 'Brand New Manager!' and 'Teambuilder!' are close to completion and these will back up the branded courses of the same names.

As well as writing the books, Allan is a prolific writer of e-books and articles many of which have appeared in trade magazines, books and websites within the UK, USA, Spain and India.

Allan has also developed three unique management coaching models entitled OUTCOMES®, CHANGES™ and CARERS™ which have been developed to further enhance management performance coaching capability. A more recent ‘performance’ model is his ‘DIAMOND MOTIVATION™’ a simple but highly effective (and practical) model of motivation which will enable managers to ensure their employees and teams become more self-motivated.

Passionate about supporting sales managers, given his sales and sales management background, he has also developed the ASPIRES™ Model of ‘field’ coaching and is seen as an industry expert in the art of ‘Field Visits’.

Allan is a elected Member of The Professional Speakers Association in the UK as well as being a Fellow of The Institute of Sales and Marketing Management.

A keen sportsman Allan is a former President of a rugby union club in Scotland. Marr Rugby, based between the towns of Troon and Prestwick, supports the development of over 300 rugby players between the ages of 7 and 50. He is also a Director of Glasgow Hawks Ltd, one of the leading Premiership rugby teams in Scotland. Allan is well known in Scottish rugby circles for his drive and innovation in attempting to develop the game in Scotland.
