Alan Baker

Finance consultant

AlanBarkerFinancial leadership is what separates top-performing organisations from the rest. I love to help companies realise their ambitions through clear understanding of the strategic environment and then identifying the key economic drivers that will enable their people and resources to achieve outstanding results.

People are always at the heart of any business strategy and I enjoy charting the financial landscape for organisations so that everyone can take a lead in ensuring business activities translate into financial performance.

I spend the majority of my leisure time between my family – wife, two sons and daughter – and participating in sport. If I am lucky, I combine the two such as when I coach the Amersham RFC mini rugby team.

I also lecture at the Master in Design Management faculty of the University of Creative Arts.

When possible, I enjoy spending time with my family at my house in the Razes wine region near Carcassonne in France.
