About Your Expert Course Leader Alan Power has extensive experience developing strategies for improving the customer experience. This experience, mostly gained in the finance sector, led the University of Leicester to invite him to join their Quality Excellence faculty where he wrote and delivered a module on Customer Service Measurement for a Masters Degree programme; this course has its origins in that programme. The George Washington University School of Business, IIR Middle East’s Academic Partner, is dedicated to excellence: in its teaching and research about management, in the public and private sectors, within the United States and internationally. The school has a 75 year history of preparing men and women for leadership in both the public and private sectors. Known internationally for its dedication to academic excellence, the school draws students from all parts of the United States and around the world. Beyond first class teaching and scholarship, the school’s faculty offers practical experience in the issues and challenges confronting business and government. Its research centres link faculty and students with US and international business and government organisations. Recent distance learning initiatives have expanded the school’s global reach.

Alan regards customer service as the key element of a Quality strategy – a strategy that seeks to deliver breakthrough improvements for the customer – and he has worked as a Quality practitioner for nearly 25 years. He first became aware of the Total Quality movement in 1986, while personnel director of Mortgage Express, a UK home loans company. It was there that he launched his first Quality management programme. As a result of the success of that programme Alan was invited to set up a new company, TSB Homeloans Ltd., the home loans arm of TSB Bank, a UK retail bank now part of the Lloyds Banking Group. The company was established in Scotland during 1989 and Alan was Managing Director until the merger of TSB Bank plc with Lloyds Bank plc in 1997.
