In a world of pedestrian training and business skills courses, Alison stands out because she has the remarkable ability to help people to become more effective communicators, fast.
When working with our clients, we sometimes build people into our projects who are experts in particular fields and bring insights and approaches that are based on first-hand experience rather than on theory and conjecture. When it comes to understanding how to help people in business to be able to translate their complex ideas into persuasive acts of communication, Alison is one of those experts.
As a coach and teacher she is able to draw on her years of experience in and around the theatre and make it relevant for people in business contexts, helping them to stop merely presenting and start performing.

Over a considerable number of years I have worked with Alison on a variety of practical workshops aimed at a wonderful mixture of people.
Alison has the ability and great expertise to involve participants in these practical workshops, at whatever level they feel confident - creating a stimulating atmosphere for those who are relaxed and pro-active and, for those colleagues who are more reticent, a safe environment in which to participate with confidence.
Alison's workshops are a delight for all, her enthusiasm, knowledge, passion for her chosen art and sense of pure enjoyment is truly infectious. And she taught me to sing without colleagues moving away! Quite an achievement.
