I can thoroughly recommend Alex as a mentor. Apart from his technical and business expertise, he had a very calming effect on me. Utterly sensible himself, he kept me grounded and less prone to tangential dives. I really enjoyed being part of his group, accountable to all- we kept on turning up, even when things had gone badly wrong and our cherished plans were dashed. The camaraderie in the group really helped us to feel well supported, all on a journey together as part of a greater enterprise. Thank you Alex and all my new friends!
