“Attendees rated the seminar “excellent” overall and rated your presentation as “excellent.” You were in fact the highest rated speaker at the seminar. We appreciated your talk which attendees described as brilliant, well delivered, to the point and easy to understand. Attendees did say they could have listened to you for much longer, so we will have to remember that for next year.”

Leeanne Templer, Events Manager, NZ Society of Local Government Managers (SOLGM)

“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 - Plastics New Zealand

“Allie I just wanted to thank you for last night, you were incredible!!! We spent the rest of the night evaluating everyone in our family and friends, so fun. The best event I have been to in a very long while. So fun, crazy awesome and applicable content, but even more importantly – everyone was really engaged and participatory. Way more fun than being talked AT. You were witty, smart, and a great communicator, and every single person LOVED your lecture.”

Amie Sepaniak VP Sales and Business Development - Gander TV (New York)

“Your presentation was certainly a highlight of our conference. We have had so much positive feedback from our delegates who being highly successful career people, were certainly looking for simple, effective people tools that they can use to enhance their relationship, both professionally and on a personal level. You certainly delivered that! You particularly impressed us on the level of content, and your delivery was pitched at the right level with a huge dose of humour, making it an enjoyable and more importantly, a great learning experience for all”

Lauren Lau, Head of Communications – WESTPAC
