Risk & crisis communication and response to events:

Allan was the first North American and still the only Canadian with a post-graduate degree in this field from Leicester University—the only university in the world with full post-graduate programs in Risk and Crisis Communications.  Fifty percent of our time is spent writing and reviewing emergency plans and responding to incidents

Negotiation and dispute resolution:

Allan is certified from MIT/Tufts/Harvard’s Program on Negotiation and Dealing with an Angry Public. In addition, Allan’s Master’s in Laws from Osgoode Hall Law School is in negotiation and dispute resolution. Allan can add value to stakeholder relations and internal negotiations with staff.

Allan has worked on strikes in multiple jurisdictions, national grievance procedures, and played small roles in large mergers and acquisitions, with our NAFTA negotiating team, and trade negotiators on five continents.

Media training:

Allan was an early practitioner in the media training field. He has conducted up to 180 sessions per year for 30 years on five continents. Participants have included some of the highest need and high profile people in the world—our NAFTA negotiators, 100 cabinet ministers, and hundreds of CXOs on five continents. With his background in journalism, and work for CBC Saskatchewan and CJME, he brings unique qualifications to this project.

Allan worked his way through graduate school as a journalist at the local and network levels in Canada and the US.

The SOCKO System

SOCKOs® are Strategic Overriding Communications and Knowledge Objectives. We invented this acronym because terms such as ace, pressline, key message mssion, vision and value statements don't convey what we want in a message. Qs & As make you question, are not message driven , take too much time and sometimes the question reveals confidential information.
