Type Of Speaker


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!

Shaun, WHSmith

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

Rupi, Metlife

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.

Kerry, GN Hearing

Alison talks about her Big Balls and boy does she have them!
We hired Alison for our Keynote slot at our event and would absolutely recommend her.
She delivered her presentation with personalised touches and a kick-ass attitude that not only got the attendees in our room buzzing but also inspired the digital attendees.
Communication with Alison and her team before the event was quick and efficient and it was a pleasure to work with Alison and her team.
Thank you Alison & Co!
