Working towards your goals can often feel overwhelming and like you’re never going to achieve them, so what’s even the point anyway?
The truth is, the reason we feel like that is that when we are setting personal and professional goals, we are missing the fundamental elements to success. Chances are, we haven’t analysed why we want what we want and what percentage of effort and resilience is required to achieve it.
Research shows that a lack of goals inside of an organisation can increase churn, reduce motivation, and ultimately have a significant impact on mental health and well-being in the workplace.

Alison recently spoke at our Travel Store Manager conference where she was a huge success. Alison was so engaging and inspirational in her approach on stage, immediately capturing the attention of her audience. I know that our managers went away with lots of things to think about and a few new tools that they can use as a leader within our business. We would be thrilled to work with Alison again and have no doubt in recommending her to anyone looking for a wonderful speaker & host!
Alison is knowledgeable, practical and very entrepreneurial, so when we had an event where MetLife needed a speaker I didn’t think twice to recommend her. I knew she would deliver the best virtual, yet interactive session for our 500 women salesforce. Overall Alison is a pleasure to interact, work and learn from and I look forward to working with her again soon
She completely understood our goals and brief and had perfectly aligned content to share with the team. On the day itself she brought the energy we needed, it was interactive, thought-provoking and the content she covered around colour profiles and big balls appeared in most of the feedback forms we got from attendees on the day. A pleasure from start to finish.
