Alan Ferguson is the Managing Director of AFA. This training company has specialised in change delivery practices for nearly 20 years.
Alan has been in project and programme management for an awfully long time. He was certainly looking after a collection of projects (which would not be called multi-project programme management) in the 1970s. So that means he’s getting to the end of his fourth decade in this game.
His first career was as an engineering officer in the Royal Air Force. Before he left the RAD, he moved across into IT and in the late 1980s and early 1990s worked on IT projects.
Alan also spent a few years working in an international insurance company on IT projects and programmes. Here, and in the RAF he earned his spurs as a practising project and programmed manager.
With AFA, Alan has worked with a hugely diverse range of clients in the UK, Europe and around the world. Alan is particularly proud of the work he has done with the UN some parts of the world that others wouldn’t dream of travelling to.
Alan’s hobbies focus around aviation in all its many aspects. His other hobbies range from helping St John Ambulance, to renovating the Windmill in Dereham; the East Anglican town where he lives and where AFA is based.
If you ever meet Alan, you won’t forget him. Everyone describes him as enthusiastic and challenging.
