Learn More About Allison
I heard Allison speak at an event for women business owners sponsored by Bank of America’s Private Bank. She was amazingly engaging and effective at imparting her wisdom and building our skills, even in such a short period of time. I can see why she is such a huge success; she is an inspiration!
I had the pleasure of meeting Allison at a recent WIT event in Washington, DC, where she talked about Speaking with Impact. Her passion and energy filled the room as soon as she started to speak. Through her powerful and authentic message, paired with simple yet engaging activities, she explained the key elements of impactful verbal communication and how we can strive to achieve it with understanding and practice. I left the session inspired and empowered; her speech gave me a new perspective. I have no doubt I share this feeling with many others who have heard her speak.

Immediately after the privilege of hearing Allison present on Public Speaking Skills at the NAWBO Women’s Business Conference, I had no fewer than 5 people tell me she’s the best breakout session speaker they’ve ever heard at any conference. Ever. And I thoroughly agree! Can’t wait to read the book!

As you can see [from your evaluations], you almost went off the charts! As a planner and trainer, I was so pleased to see a full room with an audience so thoroughly engrossed in your presentation. The exercises were especially useful, and I was especially proud of how well our intern shined during his brief speech. Public speaking can so easily give people confidence. You made it seem natural and even easy, and you truly conveyed how powerful the spoken word can be.
