Alan is the technical brains behind Tag-Check Ltd. In 2011, Tag-Check pioneered the use of transaction based sentiment metrics. These enable users to gather quick and easy feedback on their individual interactions and relationships. Tag-Check's simple approach enabled people to capture a much greater volume of feedback from their internal and external customers, and has provided organisations with a practical means to measure the key intangibles which ensure their business success.
Mike consults to a number of large international organisations, including Siemens and Microsoft, on management and facilitation. He is the author of the book Meeting by Design, which is based on research into meeting performance across 50 organisations, and proposes practical ways to transform meeting efficiency in both the physical and the virtual world.
After several years of working together on their ideas, Mike and Alan created Inspirometer Ltd in 2016 to bring the power of Tag-Check into the situation of meetings. Their solution is based on the premise that most people actually know more about running good meetings than they exhibit in practice. Inspirometer provides the visibility and accountability for the consequences of this. It enables people at all levels to make informed choices about their meetings, and how they participate, lead and oversee them.
