And her powerful voice has been received around the world with Alison having spoken to thousands of individuals across 6 continents and 19 countries to date. But it wasn't always this way. In 2013, a major bout of Imposter Syndrome unexpectedly altered the course of her life, propelling her on a journey of self-discovery, self-healing and transformation. From that pivotal moment, Alison emerged as the renowned expert she is today, dedicated to helping individuals and organisations overcome the crippling effects of Imposter Syndrome and unlock their true potential.

Recognizing that a sense of belonging is a fundamental right for every individual, Alison is fiercely passionate about empowering organizations to create diverse, equitable, and inclusive spaces where women & gender diverse individuals can shine, receive fair compensation, and thrive in their professional pursuits.

She firmly believes that gender-diverse leadership and teams is key to enhancing organizational performance across various metrics, including profitability, and understands the vital link between Imposter Syndrome and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I).

Committed to making a difference, Alison collaborates with leaders to design workplace training(s) and practices that minimize Imposter Syndrome, fostering a culture of confidence and growth for all.
