I have always been fascinated by human interaction. How do we go about effective communication with and among one another?
I first worked in the Interior Design/Visual Merchandising industry for about 8 years in New York and coastal towns of New Jersey from around 1978. This was at a time that personal home design and furnishing was just coming into the mainstream of the average homeowner.
I entered the mortgage banking industry in 1987 and spent 20 years or so supporting the needs of both state and county housing efforts while guiding home buyers and current homeowners with understanding what homeownership was truly about. Even had my own terrestrial radio program My Home Your Home, airing on WNWR New World Radio out of Bala Cynwyd, PA
With the turning of the tides, I switched from the operational side of the business to corporate training, executive coaching and focused on human development (training side) which was my way of moving on. 10+ years now I have had the pleasure of working with some great people and for high-performance companies across four primary industries. Healthcare, Financial and Banking related services, Communications such as Call Centers and customer service operations.
My focus now has been in optimizing performance improvement inline with corporate strategy. Utilizing Change Management methodology, Project Management processes and Core Business Development Skills and Interventions supporting employee development.
I was born in Tooting Bec, London, England where my parents sent me to Prior Park Preparatory School and graduated from Prior Park College, Bath, in 1975. I studied Commerce and Art.
Immigrating to the States in 1977 I personally secured my citizenship to the United States on May 19, 2000. I married Miriam Anderson-Allen in 1994 and we reside in Burlington County, New Jersey with our two tropical birds (of which Peak preceded the start of our relationship) and three dogs, Sergeant, a Great Dane, Max, a Boxer/Bull Dog and Russell, a Brussels Griffith making up our family.
