”I first met Alison Edgar at The Reach, Women in Leadership Summit where she was the closing speaker. Her talk was motivational and educational, which made her a perfect fit to work with the leadership team at Sky Betting and Gaming. She didn’t disappoint, the room was fully engaged with her session. Her delivery style is packed with humour and energy, which rubs off on everyone in the audience. She provokes thought and we are still using her techniques and talking about things Alison covered in the session. She is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend  engaging with her to invigorate your team.”
”Alison worked with the Senior Leadership Team on her intrapreneurship methodology. I loved Alison’s drive. It made the session really engaging and helped keep everyone’s energy levels up!”
“In February 2015, Alison was the Keynote speaker for the first event in the Middle-East of its kind, teaching intrapreneurship to business owners and professionals in Kuwait. We were extremely happy and have rebooked her to deliver another event.”
“Alison Edgar MBE’s keynote speech on ‘SMASH IT! with intrapreneurship’ at our event for the Polish government was powerful. She was incredibly easy to work with, kept to time well, met the brief, and went above and beyond to keep the circa 10,000 viewers engaged and motivated. I know just who to call for my next entrepreneurship event.”
“Alison is a speaker who doesn’t just spout her life story like many others do. She has a great balance of personal anecdotes combined with knowledge and practical skills the team can implement straight away.”
“Alison was amazing from start to finish. During meetings prior to the event Alison took time to understand our objectives and worked with us to ensure the content hit the mark on the day. During the event Alison’s energy and passion was there for all to see. The content really resonated with the team and they were able to connect it to real life work and home situations. Alison has some great stories and her engaging and funny delivery style made the team feel right at home. I would highly recommend Alison if you are looking to inspire and motivate your team in the future.”
“Alison was a keynote speaker at our All-staff event day. Alison captivated the team with her energy and compelling message. The whole presentation was motivational and meaningful to everyone in the room. Alison and Jaz were open and helped to deliver a presentation tailored to our staff. We look forward to working with you again in the future.”
“Alison talks about her Big Balls and boy does she have them! We hired Alison for our Keynote slot at our event and would absolutely recommend her. She delivered her presentation with personalised touches and a kick-ass attitude that not only got the attendees in our room buzzing but also inspired the digital attendees. Communication with Alison and her team before the event was quick and efficient and it was a pleasure to work with Alison.“
“Alison was amazing! The feedback was really great and everyone really enjoyed her high energy talk. Totally professional and on message! Thanks a million!”
“Alison is knowledgeable, practical and very entrepreneurial, so when we had an event where MetLife needed a speaker I didn’t think twice to recommend her as I knew she would be able to deliver the best virtual, yet interactive session for our 500 women salesforce. Overall Alison is a pleasure to interact, work and learn from and I look forward to working with her again soon.”
“From start to finish, working with Alison was an absolutely pleasure and joy. It can often sound like a cliche, but she is truly inspirational. This very clearly came across in the session that she provided to members of the team on her bestselling book, SMASH IT! What was great was that Alison worked with me to ensure that the session took account of the context within which we were working at the time, with the aim of supporting staff through difficult times and periods of change. The feedback from those who attended was more than positive and it was quite clear Alison had had an impact on all of us, in different ways.”
“We invited Alison to speak at an awards event for NHS staff. She was professional, well organised and reliable. Her presentation was engaging, entertaining and moving! She inspired us all and helped us to think constructively about how we can achieve our ambitions. Would definitely recommend Alison for future events!”
“What a seamless and lovely experience it was to work with Alison for our graduation event. Having been let down by an internal supplier with less than 3 weeks until the event date, thinking it would probably be too late, Alison absolutely saved the day. The response was really quick and we set up a meeting to discuss our requirements within a couple of days and Alison was extremely flexible in meeting our needs. On the day Alison was a fantastic ball of positive energy infecting everyone she came into contact with. She was able to put together an excellent presentation within a very short window, even making last minute adjustments at a moments notice, and the audience lapped it up! If you’re looking for a fun engaging positive speaker, Alison is definitely your go to. Thank you Alison!”

She created an interactive and engaging space where attendees could re-frame their mindset. Overall, Alison and the team were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Providing a collaborative approach to organising a great event!”
“Alison was so engaging and inspirational in her approach on stage, immediately capturing the attention of her audience. I know that our managers went away with lots of things to think about and a few new tools that they can use as a leader within our business. I was so impressed by the care and attention Alison puts into her session prior to the event with several working group conversations to ensure the content was tailored to our conference key messages and overall theme, this really made a difference linking in with our day. We would be thrilled to work with Alison again and have no doubt in recommending her to anyone looking for a wonderful speaker & host!”
