Alan J Whitaker

Inspirational Speaker
As a consultant to CEOs in 25 countries Alan J Whitaker has always sought ways to resolve huge problems facing his clients and society in general. In 2006 he became angry about the confrontational attitude of so many teenagers towards their fellow citizens - especially towards the elderly - and the fact that all people did was to complain about them. The government seemed to offer no solutions either. He asked principals of schools what the solution was and they said "the parents". He met with senior police leadership and they said "its the parents".

Over the next two years he studied the problem and eventually wrote 12 books on parent training. These he evolved into parent training manuals which have since been translated into six languages. To date over 300,000 parents have attended parent training programmes with amazing results. Parents learn how to raise their children to become confident respectful and self-reliant individuals who will become future winners. Parents also learn the role they need to play in ensuring that each of their children's education including developing reading habits and supervising homework each day.

He also developed programmes for principals to reinvent their schools to become centres of excellence.

The organisation he formed to conduct parent and principal training is the Billion Child Foundation. Its goal is to ensure a billion children escape poverty over the next 30 years by enabling them to get high quality education while being supported by committed informed parents.

In only five years BCF has trained head teachers, teachers and parents from schools attended by over 1.2 million children and is well on its way to achieving the billion child target..

Participants are inspired by Alan's journey along the road as he faced and beat one challenge after anther as he founded the Billion Child Foundation and built up his team of thousands of volunteers all dedicated to changing the lives of millions.
