IT the Global Touch

Founded in 1990 by its President and CEO, Denise Sangster, Global Touch is a hybrid computing, consumption era strategy, and goto-market transformation consulting organisation. It expands its technology clients’ revenues by supporting partners with a product portfolio, programmes, and benefits (incentives, investments, etc.) needed to deliver the outcomes customers want for years ahead.

One of Global Touch’s core disciplines is to use data-led storytelling and metrics to help clients understand the economics of building predictable revenue streams through partners and partner ecosystems.

Denise explains: “We focus on breakthrough innovation embedded in our core ‘step-ahead’ philosophy. We continually redefine our clients’ expectations to eliminate boundaries while balancing performance and transformation.”

Global Touch provides complete synchronisation between IT companies, customers, and partners in three areas: Alignment, Acceleration, and Predictability in revenue, growth, profit, and value.

The company has represented a range of businesses - from start-ups to Fortune 500, FT 500 companies, and Nikkei 100 companies - and developed a world-class reputation in delivering actionable insights that help shape future direction for sustainable revenue growth through partners.

What makes Global Touch a global award-winning company is its extensive expertise to ensure it keeps on top of current trends, emerging opportunities and threats as part of balancing current performance with the need to transform to be ready for what’s next.

Global Touch’s unique approach is to deliver the answers they were retained to provide, not just answers the client wants to hear. This outlook is part of Sangster’s philosophy to treat all clients as clients for life.

To address the challenge of gaining the global recognition she needed to fuel her early career, Denise became a columnist, writing articles for IT publications across Europe, America, and Australia. This contributed to the growth of the European IT market and led to her European customer-base.

“The best part was that many became very good and life-long friends, extending our relationships to their spouses and children. In fact, I have had four (adult) children of European technology executives work for my company over the years.”

Now over 30 years old, this globallyrenowned company has made a significant mark in its niche. Today, Global Touch embodies the path to innovation, and strives for excellence through world-class customer experiences and success measured by achieving outcomes through anticipated and unforeseen roads to success. 

Making motivation and life coaching accessible to all

We all experience moments when our motivation dips, days during which our “WHY” is hard to find, and sometimes, entire weeks where we seem to have lost the plot of our own lives.

Leading motivational coach and 2Inspire magazine founder

Dennis Postema has a plan to make sure no one has to go through these incidents alone.

With his streaming TV network, magazines, publishing company and suite of courses, Dennis ensures everyone has equal access to some of the most effective life coaches in the world - all for free.

Motivation and Success

If success needs any single consistent ingredient, it is motivation. Through his company, Motivation and Success, LLC, Dennis creates and cultivates resources that make the forward propulsion of motivation accessible through various mediums at any time of day or night. Featuring well-known finance, coaching and health gurus all with different backgrounds, experiences and approaches, every viewer is sure to find a show that appeals to their needs.

Perfect for anyone seeking inspiration at their fingertips, his magazines

SHOTCALLERS and 2Inspire and streaming services on Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV, Motivation and Success TV and 2Inspire TV for fitness and health content, are all free. Not just for individual use, Motivation and Success TV can also be a great offering in break rooms at work where, according to a recent Gallup poll, 85% of employees do not feel engaged.

While Dennis knows that effective life coaches can be outside the budget of some, especially those bootstrapping their own businesses, he founded Motivation and Success LLC to provide a coach to every individual, no matter their schedule or their budget. Users can use their phones, TVs, kindles and any other device

to constantly access uplifting content that will help them get back on track—or find their track from the get go.

Named Founder of the Year by IE 100 Magazine, Dennis has risen above more than his fair share of difficulties. Throughout his life, he’s had to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles including deeply painful losses and health struggles, yet his prevailing attitude has been one of positivity. Seeing the difference that positivity has made in his own life Dennis realized that he needed to deliver this kind of positivity to others who might have a harder time fostering that within themselves.

Product design to inspire us

Established in 2015, Akira Nakagomi Design is a product design company whose activities range from graphics and industrial products to furniture and interior design. The designer embraces new concepts based on the characteristics of materials and varied manufacturing methods to create beautiful designs that stand the test of time.

Based in the new city of Itoshima in Fukuoka, Japan’s western prefecture, Akira Nakagomi Designs is one of the country’s foremost product design companies. Excelling in the area of experimental design, it uses the latest technology and digital tools to create designs that inspire.

Designer, Akira Nakagomi has shown an interest in making things ever since he can remember. His father was a carpenter and gave Akira access to tools and his expertise from an early age.

“Designs are there to enrich our lives,” says Akira.“They stimulate and inspire us and can be treasures to cherish for many years.”

Akira combines traditional craftsmanship with the latest technology to create his experimental designs. Being the company’s sole designer, he explains, “I design products with new values by focusing on new combinations of technologies and perspectives, rather than marketing based design. I’m at my most creative when I come up with fun and interesting ideas. I always feel a sense of accomplishment and joy at seeing the finished product. A good design for me is something that makes things better. Something that gives more than superficial beauty alone.”

Living and working in Japan, Akira’s design ethos is heavily influenced by Japanese culture, in particular the way in which he selects materials and uses them in the simplest, most effective ways.

When working with clients, Akira is selective. He says, “First, we interview the client to understand what they want to achieve. Then, we examine whether the goal is feasible and identify any obstacles the client may not be aware of. We then consider the appropriate materials and the essence of the design work. When choosing a designer, instead of selecting someone whose designs you like, listen to the designer’s beliefs. Work with someone you can communicate with easily and who is aligned with your values.”

Akira’s philosophy draws influence from his love for the environment, too. Believing that designers should use their skills to create products that will be loved for a long time, he is passionate about reducing waste.

To achieve this, he uses 3D printing and AR technologies which also allow him to design with greater complexity and be more flexible with design modifications.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Akira designed his Object Splash Proof partition. After noting that

many partitions were not built to last, Akira created a simple configuration featuring a vertical circular acrylic disc supported by a brass rod and cylinder. The aesthetic and functional design received great acclaim, being named Golden Design Award Winner 2021 – 2022 Furniture Design Award Category by A’Design Award & Competition.

Akira’s plans for the future include focusing on emerging technologies, and exploring the use of natural and recycled materials. Akira Nakagomi Design is committed to developing products with low environmental impact and increasing its level of social contribution. 

Coeval

LED Hazard Warning Systems Supplier of the Year - UK

Signs that lead the way

Coeval is a UK-wide specialist provider of robust, LED road sign based systems that advise, inform, educate and protect communities - helping create a safer environment.

Coeval delivers infrastructure technology that advises and informs users to help create a safer environment. They do this through various intelligent radiolinked LED road signs and systems that provide clear, reliable, and flexible messaging, data, and connectivity to feed more comprehensive highway information control systems.

Coeval offers a wide range of technical solutions from speed, hazard and safety to parking, and overheight issues. These can be supplied as new units or adapted to make use of existing street furniture to meet individual customer needs.

The company has a powerful range of products for which they either have sole distribution rights or own the technology. CEO Gary Higgins explained: “We use the latest LED technology, and renewable energy such as solar and wind power. We have won the ‘Variable Message Sign Company of the Year’ four times in a row. We keep being told our signs are the best in the UK, and you can’t get better than that.”

Speed Indicator Signs

Coeval helped Arriva UK Bus improve safety around their Luton depot by alering drivers to a 5mph speed limit on site and influencing their behaviour to slow down. Speed Indicator Signs were installed. A speed of less than 5mph shows in green; above the limit shows in red.

These vehicle-activated signs are robust, with high-power LEDs that can be seen clearly even in inclement weather.

They were quick and easy to install, meaning minimal disruption

to the bus depot. Once installed, they immediately raised awareness to drivers’ speeds and improved the safety on site.

Over-height Vehicle Detection

To protect a bridge from being struck by high vehicles, Scottish Water implemented a protection project that included deploying four of Coeval’s Overheight Vehicle Detection Systems (OVD).

The OVD systems provided advance warning to high-sided vehicles approaching the bridge, allowing drivers to take an alternative route.

Coeval carried out a full turnkey installation project, including civil works.

Cloud Control System

Poor air quality is a big environmental threat to health. Coeval have supplied various solutions from parking / route guidance to Over-height Vehicle Detection (OVD) and Hazard Warning,

all of which help reduce congestion and, in turn, reduce air pollution. They also supplied LED message signs for the Birmingham Clean Air Zone.

With the implementation of air quality sensors, Coeval can publish air quality levels on their intelligent signage to help raise awareness and encourage changes in travel behaviour. 

Luxaviation

Luxurious Private Aviation Service of the Year - Europe

A passion for sky-high luxury

One of the world’s largest business aircraft and helicopter operators, Luxaviation has been tailoring private travel experiences for its global clientele since 1964. The Luxembourg company currently employs over 1,300 staff across five continents to deliver its outstanding services.

In light of Luxaviation being recognised as our Most Luxurious Private Aviation Service 2023 – Europe, we speak with Chief Marketing Officer, Juliane Thiessen to find out more.

Almost 60 years ago, Belgian visionary entrepreneur, André Ganshof van der Meersch founded a small company named Abelag, a predecessor of Luxaviation. As an accomplished pilot himself and having studied flying in the United States, André was quick to recognise the potential of bringing private aviation to Europe. Abelag began by launching its private luxury flights across Belgium. It wasn’t long before the company was able to expand its reach, flying its clients across the globe. Wanting to experience the service through his clients’ eyes, André often requested staff to accompany him on flights to understand how to improve.

Today, Luxaviation’s commitment to excellence through its visionary, pioneering, and innovative private aviation experiences is unwavering.

The Luxaviation Group brings together four luxury brands: Luxaviation, Luxaviation Helicopters, Starspeed, and ExecuJet.

Luxaviation’s private jet services enable clients to travel wherever they want, whenever they want. Juliane tells us, “Time is such a precious commodity, especially in business. That’s why often chartering an aircraft makes perfect economic sense. Clients can work, conduct meetings, or simply

enjoy a well-earned rest as they travel. They can maximise the time they spend at home knowing that we’re on hand to help with schedule changes.”

For passengers flying for leisure, the fun begins when they board their Luxaviation luxury jet. Attention to detail is second to none including Michelin-star quality meals accompanied by fine wines and champagne.

There’s a selection of onboard entertainment to appeal to every taste, too. And if you’re travelling with your pet, Luxaviation gives them a VIP welcome, also.

The company caters for multi-stop tours for sports teams, musicians, and on-location filmmakers, having a freight capacity for loads up to 800kg. For those who need to access crowded or hard-to-reach spots, Luxaviation’s helicopter charter service fits the bill. The helicopter fleet is equipped with the latest technology and of course, the company’s signature luxury interiors.

Private jet and helicopter owners choose to leave all the administrative and operational aspects of their aircraft management in the capable hands of Luxaviation’s management service. Management professionals are on hand 24/7 every day of the year to ensure Luxaviation-managed aircraft fly smoothly wherever they are in the world.

Juliane says, “As well as our full management packages, we offer a tailored a la carte service for ground and flight support. Our services include charter coordination, flight planning, crew training, and maintenance coordination.”

In the spirit of innovation, the group continues to build on its portfolio of services. These include fully curated travel experiences by La Fugue, safaris in partnership with Rora Private

Collection, and Luxaviation’s own selection of exclusive getaways.

Julianne enthuses, “We’re honoured to evolve our brand in keeping with the ever-changing luxury travel landscape. It’s our ambition to offer tailor-made services dedicated to excellence for both our customers and partners. These services serve to further embody and drive our values by providing services that offer sustainable, state-of-theart solutions whilst ensuring safe, responsible, and ethical delivery.”

On receiving the award the Group’s CEO, Patrick Hansen, says: “We’re delighted the IE100 judges selected Luxaviation as the winner of the Luxurious Private Aviation Service of the Year in Europe. We strive for excellence in our services, and it’s rewarding to know that our efforts are being recognised. I’d like to thank the highly experienced Luxaviation team, who are committed to providing highend services to our customers.” 

KCStrengthsHUB

Pharma Talent & Strategy Specialist Company of the Year - UK

Creating engaging workplaces

KCStrengthsHUB is a leading talent strategy and engagement company that maintains a focused portfolio of clients in the global pharma industry.

Now entering its sixth year of Global operations

KCStrengthsHUB remains focused on helping the global pharmaceutical industry win the battle for talent and create company-wide cultures of high performance to drive individual, team and business growth.

Benefitting from a wealth of knowledge and industry experience, the company has acquired numerous awards and titles over the years, with each recognising its dedicated services.

KCStrengthsHUB partners with its pharmaceutical clients and key strategic partners - Gallup, the world’s number one research based global performance-management consulting company, and e2Grow, a digital enabling platform company.

What makes KCStrengthsHUB unique?

KCStrengthsHUB’s purpose and values make them unique. They are…

To inspire organisational change and greater wellbeing by delivering impactful CliftonStrengths-based workplace solutions that create a more engaging pharmaceutical workplace and enables global pharmaceutical companies to bring a consistent stream of innovative medicines that solve unmet medical needs that have a significant impact on people’s lives, quicker.

What’s been the biggest challenge over the last 12 months?

Really getting their client leaders to align KCStrengthHUB’s programmes to their business and the business outcomes they are focused on. Their methodology is based on real world data on how to drive performance at work and even the most senior of leaders, can shy away from aligning high performance programmes to their outcomes.

KCStrengthHUB’s approach to this was twofold;

1) to coach every leader on the importance of business outcomes at the beginning of a programme, so that meaningful goals and evaluations could be set.

2) to collect data from every coaching intervention to see the programme’s business connection by asking participants a simple set of questions about the extent to which this programme has influenced certain business measures.

This enabled KCStrengthHUB to produce world-class year-end reports for all their clients - showing the results of every programme undertaken.

In addition, as the geo-political and global economic situation has worsened, KCStrengthHUB’s challenge was for clients to see they need highperformance teams and employees to do more of what they do best with great leaders developing them, more than ever. Engaged employees and who they select as managers are key differentiators to success and can be a real competitive advantage in 2023.

How does KCStrengthHUB plan to innovate within the next five years? They have started by creating worldclass client and coach onboarding processes. They have also created new products and filed 4* successful trademarks in 2022. These are:

1. Strengths HUB®

2. TPA®- Method

3. StrengthsHUB-HiiT®

4. StrengthsHUB-IGNiTE®

They know turnover rates are higher every year and with only 9% of the UK workforce engaged at work, according to Gallup World, they introduced two new products in January 2023…

1. A world-class employee onboarding programme to a

high-performance team which will accelerate the integration and alignment of new colleagues. It will also improve new hire retention and productivity by as much as 82% and 70% respectively.

2. Grow My Strengths Programmea great entry or follow-up programme for existing and new clients. This programme is a low-effort highimpact programme and offers clients a great ROI.

What impact has the company’s culture had on their success?

The future of KCStrengthsHUB is set to be exceptionally bright.

It currently works with four of the top seven global pharma companies, plus others, and employs seven coaches who deliver programmes around the world. 

VISION

Dr Regina Dahmen-Ingenhoven Female Architect of the Year - Germany

Creating beautiful spaces

Dr Regina Dahmen-Ingenhoven founded her architectural office in 2001 and has won multiple awards since.

Regina focuses on design for wellness facilities, clinics, shops and fashion design. Her projects are numerously publicated in journals and books and she frequently gives lectures. Regina believes that people need a safe place that makes them happy and provides comfort and shelter. “We are living in a time, which has been shaped by catastrophes and insecurity, and that has created a wish for change.”

Regina’s approach is heavily influenced by European city utopias. “European architectural history is an essential part of who I am,” says Regina.

“Architecture and urban development should include more than just functionality. It is our

philosophy to design spaces that function as energy sources, have sensuality and create a state of wellbeing. Places of beauty make people happy and have healing properties,” explains Regina.

“The debate about what architecture and urban development can achieve nowadays is more important than ever. We have to consider the enormous impact on our body, mind and soul. This is a challenge for us architects.”

Reginadahmeningenhoven

Architects has a wide customer base, but always focuses on atmosphere, feelings and beauty, which are determined by shapes, colours or the floorplan. 

In addition to this, it also offers PPE which include disposable clothing, masks and disinfectants, as well as height protection, hearing protection, and eye protection.

When working on a personalised project, the team begins by studying the clients’ brand and needs, to develop a design that is best suited for each of them. Once approved it is then put through to production to create logistic solutions that suit them – while also creating an image that will represent their company.

Sustainability is at the forefront of what Jobs Uniforms does because it cares about the people, the planet and the future. This is reflected in the hotel corporate wear – as one of the collections called ‘Today Collection’ uses 15 recycled bottles for each suit that is made. Finding alternative solutions that are better for the environment is beneficial for the long-term wellbeing of our planet.

Additionally, using recycled materials to make long lasting clothing is a great way to make a positive impact. Every little counts no matter how small.

Environment Monitoring Solutions Provider of the Year - USA

Maximising productivity

Preventing costly business outages due to factors such as high heat, water leaks, unexpected power outages and more is critical to every organization’s business continuity plan. Thankfully, products like Room Alert have been protecting businesses of all sizes since 1988, and their longevity is one of the many reasons they have been named Environment Monitoring Solutions Provider of The Year – USA.

The Room Alert platform that consists of monitors, sensors, software and accessories is built and supported by AVTECH Software from their locations in Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Ireland, and Dubai, making them a truly global company.

“Preventing costly downtime and outages has been our core focus for over 30 years,” stated AVTECH President & COO Richard Grundy. “Whether it’s a server room, warehouse, cold storage facility, or even a college dorm, Room

Alert has been designed to protect people, property, and productivity to provide peace of mind.”

Most organizations don’t realize that 30% of the outages they face are due to their environment. Factors such as high humidity can cause employee illness and fatigue, which can lead to injuries. Power loss to a cooling unit can cause temperatures in a server room to rise rapidly, leading to hard drive crashes and data loss. Room Alert helps monitor the factors an organization is most concerned about, and will send alerts via SMS, email, and more as soon as problems are detected. This allows organizations to respond quickly to prevent downtime before it even occurs.

With so many organizations adopting a “shield’s up” approach to cybersecurity, Room Alert offers multiple monitors with enhanced security features, as well as user

protection in their Room Alert Account dashboard and Room Alert Manager software. Room Alert truly is dedicated to protecting organizations on all fronts and helping them to maximize their uptime and productivity. 

Bringing loved ones home

Project Lifesaver is a community based, public safety, non-profit organisation which provides law enforcement, fire/rescue, and caregivers with a programme designed to protect, and when necessary, quickly locate individuals with cognitive disorders who are prone to the life threatening behaviour of wandering.

38 | IE 100 MAGAZINE | SPRING/SUMMER 2023 NORTH
AMERICA

The Project Lifesaver programme began in 1999 when it became apparent to Gene Saunders that there was a major void that needed to be filled in providing search, rescue and protection for ‘at risk’ individuals who are prone to the life threatening behaviour of wandering.

For the past 20 years, Gene’s clear and singular focus has been on providing one of society’s most vulnerable groups and their caregivers the support, protection and peace of mind they need while delivering the tools and training to public safety agencies that are responding to individuals with cognitive disorders who tend to wander.

Project Lifesaver was the first organisation to apply tracking technology for the search and rescue of individuals with cognitive disorders and has remained the leader in this field for the past 20 years. Because of Gene’s efforts, the Project Lifesaver programme is in all 50 US states and throughout Canada with nearly 1,600 member organisations.

The success of the programme can also be measured by the lives of the ‘at risk’ individuals and their families that the program has touched - with more than 4,000 rescues to date.

Extensive experience

Because of his extensive experience in special needs search and rescue, Gene has provided valuable insight and information in the development of policy and practices for search, rescue, and safe recovery of at risk wanders.

Gene has helped in the development of materials and training programmes to provide the necessary education to doctors, caregivers, school administrators, first responders/search personnel and, of course, the families of special needs individuals.

Project Lifesaver is a subject matter expert and advisor on the wandering issue for: Leaders Engaged on Alzheimer’s disease (LEAD), National Center for Missing &. Exploited Children, the International

Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), the Alzheimer’s Foundation, and the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA) the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners and the International Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners.

Project Lifesaver also partners and collaborates with the following organizations on special needs wandering issues:

• Autism Speaks

• Bureau of Justice Assistance, Department of Justice

• National Sheriff’s Association

• Council for Autism and Neurodiversity

• Pilot International

• National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners

• Unicorn Children’s Foundation

• Virginia Sheriff’s Association

• Alzheimer’s Foundation of America

• Virginia Airborne Search & Rescue Squad

The Project Lifesaver training programme is recognised and approved by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services and certified by the National Preparedness Institute at Indian River State College.

The organisation partners with local first responders, educating those public safety agencies on the latest health information related to the disorders they will be working with, and training those first responders to approach the “at risk” individual, gain their trust and put them at ease for their trip home once they have been located.

‘At risk’ individuals

It’s estimated that over 5.7 million people have Alzheimer’s disease today and the numbers are expected to multiply in the years to come. Nearly 60% of people with Alzheimer’s will wander at some point during the progression of the disease and many will wander repeatedly.

A recent study estimates that 46% of patients with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia who wander

off will die if they are not found within 24 hours.

Additionally, children with Autism and Down Syndrome also tend to wander. In a recent National Autism Association survey, nearly 92% of parents felt their autistic child was at risk of wandering away and becoming lost.

‘At risk’ individuals enrolled in the Project Lifesaver programme wear a personalised wristband that emits an exclusive radio frequency tracking signal assigned only to the bracelet wearer. Once the local Project Lifesaver agency is notified of the missing person, a search and rescue team responds to the wanderer’s last known location and searching commences using the Project Lifesaver receiver and antenna.

Training programmes

Project Lifesaver also provides training programmes which help public safety officers better understand the symptoms and behaviour of the individuals that they are recovering. These training programs give first responders the tools to assess and effectively manage the safe and comfortable return of the ‘at risk’ individuals they encounter.

To date, Project Lifesaver agencies have conducted more than 4,000 successful rescues. Most who wander are found within a few miles from home, and search times have been reduced from hours and days to minutes.

Recovery times for Project Lifesaver clients average 30 minutes - 95% less time than standard operations. 
