Meet our foundersAlan Lau
is an end-to-end delivery consultant and certified Scrum Master. He has 18 years’ experience in delivering custom software solutions within cross-functional international teams.
“I first had the idea of setting up cogito ergo sum after being involved in far too many rescue projects,” said Alan.
“I also saw firsthand how many businesses lack the confidence to start an offshore initiative to help drive their business forward.
“That’s why cogito ergo sum is a consultancy that does things differently. We don’t just supply ‘bums on seats’. Instead, we mentor businesses with existing offshore engagements, so they can make these relationships work smarter and harder. And we help businesses that are hesitant about engaging with offshore take those first crucial steps toward extending their onshore teams.”
Outside of work, Alan is passionate about racing motorbikes, triathlons and expedition travel. Having already undertaken a successful solo Atlantic row expedition, he’s planning a solo expedition to the South Pole in the near future, and a journey along The Silk Road in the slightly more distant future.
Alan brings this resilience and desire to push the boundaries to his work, where he encourages our clients to embrace change, evolve, and be the best they can be.
