Allison’s wishes to dispel the myths that surround mental health and as a result, she is an accessible and engaging speaker.
“We recently booked Allison to speak at an internal physical wellbeing and mental health event. The discussion was around the benefits of sports and outlets outside work to your overall mental health.
Alison’s talk and panel interaction was thought provoking, engaging whilst also being humorous. It is not always an easy topic to discuss, however Alison was very well received by the audience and made it easy and comfortable for them to pose questions and engage in the conversation in a group scenario.
I would highly recommend Allison to anyone who is looking for someone to speak on ‘Good Mental Health’ and all the aspects of your life that contribute to that.”
