Working with Alan is a real privilege. His unique presence is purely authentic, powerful, and liberating. He has a way of intuitively asking the right questions at the right moment in the most appropriate way, often bringing transformation on the spot. For me personally, this has been extremely valuable in my search for fulfillment in the second half of my life. Specifically, it inspired me to found the Academy of New Leadership Quinter in The Netherlands in 2012.
There are a lot of books and theories about leadership and coaching. Alan has distilled the essence to create his extremely powerful approach, Transformational Presence. It is profound on the one hand, practical on the other.
I recommend any program or workshop with Alan without any hesitation to anyone who wants to live a more meaningful or effective life.

Gijs Dullaert (Netherlands)
More and more, I’m able to be a “vessel” for the things that need to happen. Most important to me is that I’m feeling much more at home in myself. My internal fire is so much stronger than ever before. I feel so privileged to have been introduced to Transformational Presence and to continue receiving its incredible gifts.

Francine Derks, CTPC (Netherlands)
Alan is a great teacher with a perfect balance between letting you experience how TP is working for yourself and others and also in teaching about the basics and backgrounds. And I love his books, because they are really the foundation under it all. He is always developing himself further and creating new material and workshops.
Alan is warm, intuitive, close, and really travels together with you, and you never feel that he is judging you or your issues. This gives space for everything that needs to be said, felt, or experienced. I am particularly struck by the way Alan handles resistance and how he gives feedback. He keeps the relations open, positive, and focused on the future with its challenges and opportunities. I have learned so much as a professional and also how to live my own life. It has all become easier.
Transformational Presence is growing and developing and I am proud to be a member of the TP community. In my 17 years of experience and after a lot of training in this field, I can say that this is by far the best training I have ever had.

For me, this depth and drawing out has allowed me to embrace a greater understanding of my presence and my work in the world. I can feel the power of that gift and have been able to extend and embody that in my offerings and leadership approach.
Finding Alan and his work in Transformational Presence has brought new ways of thinking and a new vocabulary to match what I so deeply value. It has been a year since I attended my first training. Yet there is not a day that goes by where the “centering” of that experience and the “practice” of Transformational Presence has not been available to help ground and lead me back to the truths that inspire and empower me to do my work in the world.

Alan’s authenticity rings true in his books, his workshops, and in his individual coaching sessions. That is why I chose to bring his program to the West Coast. There are many impressive programs, many impressive writers, and many impressive facilitators. Finding authenticity in all of these roles that aligns with the stated goals and objectives of the course is critical to me. Alan is authentic in every way.
