He was a much appreciated strategist and executive coach to myself and several other leaders on the Force. Alex delivered tangible results, and the Police Service was privileged to have him leading and assisting us through some very challenging and important transformations.”

Hugh Moore,

“Alex Lowy provided timely and valued insights into the strategic alternatives and their likely consequences confronting our company. With the tech bubble cresting (1999 – 2001), Alex helped the executive team develop a strategy that accelerated growth, improved customer satisfaction and attracted a bid for the company that was celebrated and accepted by its shareholders.”

“We have been lucky enough to have Alex Lowy on our faculty since 2005. It is rare to find someone who combines thought leadership with the discipline to form these thoughts into coherent and useable patterns and the ability to have audiences understand and learn these skills. Alex is one of those rare people. His insights into how to think and act more strategically and creatively and use higher order levels of critical thinking and problem solving are tremendous. His understanding of how people can merge the power of their own thinking with the opportunities provided by contemporary technology makes him rare. His ability to communicate to others and help them improve their own capabilities make him almost unique.”
