Her most recent role was as Training and Workforce Development Manager at Lambeth DAT.

Rabiya completed an MA in Applied Coaching with distinction focusing on the use of Coaching and NLP to accelerate recovery from substance misuse.

Alan led the first successful British team to walk unsupported from Canada to the Geographical North Pole. Alan was awarded the MBE in the Queen’s 2000 New Years’ Honours list for determination and strong leadership in such adverse conditions, and became a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, England.
Since returning from the North Pole, Alan left the Royal Marines to focus on delivering inspirational team management and leadership talks to a global audience of executives from a broad spectrum of businesses and non-profit organisations. These talks are delivered on their own or by working in conjunction with management consultants to deliver high performance business lessons in a practical way. Alan found that the values that brought success to the North Pole journey are directly applicable to the business world. The presentation can be adapted to suit a company or organisation’s specific learning focus.

As a qualified and supervised counsellor, Bill is an inner city practitioner and particularly enjoys working with young people some of whom are the most vulnerable in our society.

He currently serves as Chairman of Trustees at People against Poverty, working with the poor in Eastern Europe, Africa and Asia and is the founder of Business against Poverty. His mission, simply put, is to set people free to fulfil their destiny and to support as many of those in need as possible. He cares passionately about people. He embraces authority but feels free to challenge it.
Bill’s balanced and rounded experiences make him the ideal person to work with both private and organisational individuals on their personal and emotional needs and to integrate their whole self into their private life and work contexts. Bill is available for counselling appointments and also for coaches to refer appropriate clients when coaching is not the correct methodology for their personal needs.
