Speaker testimonials

‘Alison’s introduction of Neural Linguistic Programming to the topic included activities for the attendees to really drive home the points she made.  Whilst that sort of approach is novel to our meetings and if done poorly, can be quite awkward, Alison made it fun and a very valid illustration of the practical application of the techniques in a way that invited the audience to really consider how they interact with stakeholders.

The networking event afterwards was lively and Alison was generous with her time for those that wanted to know more. In short, we thoroughly enjoyed Alison coming to speak to us and have had nothing but positive feedback from the event. Thank you Alison.’
