“We were set to have Alison speak at our live event this year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to make this virtual. We were worried that the engagement levels wouldn’t be there, however, I was blown away with Alison’s ability to give an imperative boost to our team when it mattered the most, and kept them engaged with interactive exercises throughout the session. I would thoroughly recommend Alison to any team that needs a bit of ‘va va voom’ and encouragement during the crisis.” Karen Woolf, Director of Field Sales at Yell 2020.
“… a fantastic asset to the event. Alison’s session was oversubscribed with standing room only. She was a breeze to work with. I look forward to working with her at the next Summit.” Women in Sales Summit
“After the session I felt that everyone in the group started to become more confident in their plans … Alison is a speaker who doesn’t just spout her life story like many others do. She has a great balance of personal anecdotes combined with knowledge and practical skills.” WHSmith
