Brief Biography: 

Born 1957 in London, Alan became a salesman aged 18. Alongside a career in business, advising and training, he founded Businessballs.com in 1999 (global free ethical work/life/leadership education). After his partner Liane Ashberry's suicide in 2015 (see RudeAngel.co.uk), and some additional traumas and ongoing suicidal ideation, Alan conceived the Festival of Life and Death ('FoLaD' FestivalofLifeandDeath.org), for a world without suicide, and all this implies. Alan is a creative, musician, writer, runner, tea-maker, survivor, and authenticity advocate. He lives in a 1767 Leicestershire farmhouse with outbuildings, where having raised his family, he writes, and innovates concepts and cafe space for community wellness and societal transformation.
