SUCCESS STORIES

When I needed counsel on securing an Executive Director role with a global trade group, Allison provided coaching on all aspects of the approach, interview and negotiations.  Once I secured the role, we planned for the transition and smart strategies for success.  The time spent together was certainly of high value for me.

 

Christie Pruyn – Executive Director of an international nonprofit

I've seen Allison in action on numerous occasions. She has a great business sense and thinks two or three steps beyond most others. She also has the skill to manage complex details and delegate appropriately which makes her a very effective leader.

 

George Couris – President of an award winning marketing agency

I respect and admire Allison greatly for her ability to effectively and efficiently manage a volunteer board of industry executives. She was a tremendous asset to the board given her expertise, work ethic, thought leadership, integrity, credibility and poise in a demanding and rapidly evolving environment.
