Alan Twigg

Alan Twigg is the author of “Why Go Vegan” and the creator of the recently finished “Plant-Based Heroes” online course.

He was born and raised in the former industrial city of Sheffield in the north of England and dropped out of school at a young age to become a lorry driver. Unable to afford the mortgage, he started his first successful business at the age of 24. Just 5 years later he gave it all up to move to Germany after meeting and falling in love with his wife of many years, Susanne.

He’s been a dish washer, petrol-pump attendant, lorry driver and the founder of several businesses in the UK and Germany including an employment agency, translation agency, marketing company and event company.

He currently lives in Tenerife in the Canary Islands where he organises international Argentine tango events in the north and south of the island.

He has four children and four grandchildren.

After lots of encouragement from his daughter, Alan took up a vegan lifestyle nearly 5 years ago. Only shortly afterwards he stumbled accidently into Yoga, got completely hooked, went to lesson after lesson and now has a regular morning routine that includes meditation, breathing and lots of stretching.

He’s passionate about encouraging and motivating others to consider a vegan and more mindful lifestyle, especially those from a working-class background like his own.
