“We have had so much fabulous feedback. The team and the clients just loved you and your message. You are a fabulous, super talented and stylie dynamo”

“Your presentation ‘Pressing the Right Buttons’ highlighted that if we better understand ourselves and our colleagues we can transform relationships and create high performing teams to deliver on growth and business goals. As such, it built on our Conference theme perfectly. Equally, in this challenging time slot, you entertained us with your energy, passion, and humour. I wanted attendees to take away from the Conference some real gems that they could apply in their own work environments and I am sure the tool you presented will be at the top of their list”

Ken Sowman Nigel Donne PNZ Business Manager


“Hi Allison, I was in Sydney and attended your amazing presentation with Arbonne Australia. I have been meaning to write to you to thank you for an incredible presentation. You are an amazing presenter, you had me (and all of us) from your first word and had my full attention throughout. It was funny, informative, and most importantly I learned valuable tools, which I have applied not only to my business but to my social circles and marriage as well! In fact my family and I were away with four other families over Easter and it was the topic of conversation. Everyone was so interested in hearing all about it. You are one very clever lady! So I just wanted to thank you and hope one day our paths cross again. I wish you well.”

Sharon Muscet, Regional Vice President – ARBONNE INTERNATIONAL

“Allison, I just wanted to send you a little note to say it was an honour and a privilege to be a part of your amazing training at our VP leadership meeting in Sydney. I learned so much from your talk and I will be putting it into action both into my personal and family life as well as my business. It has allowed me to see more clearly the different people within my organization and once I have read your book I am excited to start training this out to my team.”

Dental Assistants Network Day

“Allison,  Thank you for your amazing presentation to the Dental Assistants at our DA Network Day. Your name still comes up in the lunch room! A testament to how welcome and timely your message was shared with us. There is a discernible shift in the dynamics of our team and if I had to put a label on it, I would call it ‘respect’ for the way we operate as individuals. But even more than that, with this new regard for each other, some people are doing unexpected and exceptional things. This is probably not news to you, but I am certainly in awe!”
