Lord Duncan McNair
Lord Duncan McNair (Lord McNair of Gleniffer),
took his seat in the House of Lords in April 1990.
Lord McNair served a term of nine years in the
House of Lords, where he took particular interest in issues of human
rights, particularly freedom of religion, education, international
development as well as natural health issues. Following his term of
office Lord McNair formed a public affairs consultancy, with clients
in the fields of manufacturing, financial services and humanitarian
In 1994, in his capacity as a member of the All
Party Group on race and community Lord McNair was invited to visit
the Sudan, where he quickly realised that many of their social and
humanitarian issues would respond to the Study Technology of L. Ron
Hubbard. Lord McNair visited the Sudan on a number of occasions,
over the next few years, where he discussed the possibility of
making this technology available to the government of this country
for social betterment and humanitarian purposes.
In 1996, Lord McNair also became involved in a
learning how to learn project in Zimbabwe, based upon the Study
Technology of L. Ron Hubbard, and visited this country in 1997. This
sparked his interest in the use of this methodology of learning in
social betterment and humanitarian issues on a world wide basis. He
realised this modern method of education was the key to capacity
building and social development all over the world.
In 1997 Lord McNair was appointed an
International Advisory Board Member of Applied Scholastics
International, an organisation responsible for supervising
organisations and projects using L. Ron Hubbard’s Study Technology
In 2003 Lord McNair and a team of specialists
visited the Sudan and delivered training in L. Ron Hubbard’s Study
Technology to 29 University lecturers. The senior educators who
participated were enthusiastic about the results.
Lord McNair is now developing Applied Learning
Techniques International (ALTI) as an organisation whose
humanitarian objective is to improve social conditions through
education. ALTI helps governments and educational organisations to
improve educational services and methods of learning and teaching.

Alan Cook is the Operations Director for ALTI and
has been involved with the Study Technology of L. Ron Hubbard for
over thirty years.
As a young man, Alan saw at firsthand the gang
violence, drugs and general degradation that were the product of an
education system which denied many children the opportunity to
achieve their full potential.
At the age of seventeen Alan first encountered L.
Ron Hubbard's Study Technology and quickly realised that many of the
problems he had witnessed were the result of an education lacking a
workable technology of learning. He saw how people who had had real
problems with study were able to solve those problems using Study
Technology and move forward in their careers, and he decided to do
whatever he could to help get Study Technology being used as widely
Alan is qualified and experienced as a Training
Supervisor and Tutor in Study Technology. He also devotes time each
week to charity work at a tutoring centre helping illiterate and
semi-literate adults and children
