From Stressed to Best

Are you or your staff suffering from regular stress? Do you have staff reluctantly returning to the boardroom, still burnt out after a break?

In this talk, Alison helps audiences to recognise the stress danger signs, avoid corporate burnout and motivate them to choose a balance regardless of the corporate pace. Drawing on her own experience of working in high-stress environments and her own burnout, and the steps it took to return to work, she will share valuable guidance on wellbeing.

Wellbeing in the Workplace

Alison works with corporate companies to implement Wellbeing Programmes – Providing a secure and safe workplace is a matter of law. Taking health and safety seriously – and being seen to do so – enhances a company’s reputation as employer and business partner. There is also the commercial sense in getting it right first time, rather than bear the risk of greater cost when things go wrong.

Wellbeing starts in the boardroom. In this talk, she helps companies that are considering wellbeing initiatives to understand the basics.  This talk is also ideal for Professional bodies to include in their conferences as a thought-provoking topic for companies to consider. It gives delegates ideas that they can take back with them to their workplace.

Diva on a Harley

Who is the Diva on a Harley? In this talk, Alison shares her intriguing journey from being someone who suffered chronic shyness and low self-esteem in early life to overcoming burnout and recovering through to launching her own business. In short, Alison knows a thing or two about overcoming challenges.

Now an entrepreneur, international speaker and business owner, each of these experiences have helped her become the inspiring woman she is today. Gain valuable insight into the steps you can take to overcome professional and personal challenges, take charge of your destiny and start living a fuller and happier life.

Speaker testimonials

‘Alison’s 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.’
