Alex envisions a world where work is effortless, and teams are drama-free.

Standing side-by-side since 2015 with NY Times Bestselling author and thought leader Cy Wakeman, Alex collaborates with organizations and leaders globally to help them ditch the drama from the workplace, hardwire accountability in their teams and turn excuses into results.

Everything that Alex does is designed to help people understand that success and happiness is their natural state as a human being – once the drama is gone. With this core belief, Alex’s passion is revealing to those he works with that once people carve away drama from their lives – the same job they found themselves upset with today, becomes the job they look forward to and love tomorrow.

As a keynote speaker and trainer, he helps organizations exchange the endless argument for a DIFFERENT workplace reality for a shifted perspective that enables them to start achieving more success and fulfillment in their CURRENT workplace reality.

In addition to sharing the Reality-Based philosophy from the stage, Alex is also a quintessential part of Cy Wakeman’s content creation and media team spreading the ditch the drama message online. Over the last three years, his expertise, insights and execution have helped to balloon her online community of raving fans from 15,000 to 150,000 followers across platforms.

As the host of The Carvery Podcast with Alex Dorr (available on Apple iOS, Google Play and Simplecast), he shares his journey, stories, and insights as a Reality-Based speaker and practicing drama defuser to help others carve away their own drama and start calling those they lead to greatness.

Although Alex stands in at 6’6” tall and is commonly told at events, “you look a lot taller up close,” he prides himself on being down to earth or better yet, grounded in reality.

In a previous life, he was a former professional basketball player, Alex holds a MSc International Business from the University of Derby (England) and his client list includes the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bank of America, Salesforce, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), John Deere, Kohler, Nationwide, Washington Commanders (NFL), Adobe, Medtronic, Kaiser Permanente, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), AICPA, BKD LLP, Ely Lilly, Baylor Scott & White Health, Carnival Cruise Lines, Emory Healthcare, US Department of Commerce, National Association of Credit Management and the University of Oregon among others.

Rave Reviews


“Alex Dorr presented to our leadership teams a number of times both virtually and in person. His delivery was masterful – engaging, relatable, responsive, flexible. More importantly, the content was a pivotal part of widespread organizational change. Alex is a true expert speaker with a powerful message!”

Vice President of People and Culture - Retail


“Alex listens carefully and tailors his messages accurately to meet the needs of his specific audience. We’ve had him speak to partners and to our young associates, and he was able to effectively share the same concepts in different ways so the message resonated equally. We are actually USING the concepts Alex taught us at our firm – which is a rarity in my firm, which loves to listen and forget or not apply what was shared. He is humble, down-to-earth, funny, and practices the concepts he teaches. The world can benefit from what he has to share. Seriously cannot recommend him more highly.”
