Testimonial

Alan Rook provided world class leadership during the pre-launch project phase of the Arise network, which is a global TV and mutimedia service focusing on parts of the world which do not receive the attentions of traditional media. Alan's media experience and his excellent communications skills allowed him to create and manage a team which laid the foundations for the network's successful launch. He was able to take the original vision of the service, add to it and turn it into a practical media product. He was involved in the selection of the senior management team, whom he trained and guided. He co-ordinated inputs from Arise offices in Africa, Asia and the USA. His contribution was pivotal in the development of the network.
