How a talk on personal style can empower your audience

My passion for personal style fuels me to share my vision, understanding and work with women all over the world. Whenever I have the chance, I love to speak on the topic whether it’s with my inspirational 20-minute talk or my in-depth 90-minute workshop. I am also thrilled to speak about entrepreneurship, client service, marketing, sales, visibility, mentoring, women’s empowerment, women’s rights and moderate events touching on any or all of these fascinating topics.

My Ted-Style Talk, “The Power of Personal Style” will help your audience understand the power of personal style to prime you to become the best version of who you are.

WHAT THE AUDIENCE SAYS:

Inspirational Talk: “Step Into Your Personal Style”
“I really enjoyed Allison’s talk because she considers all aspects of me. She looks at who I am, where I want to go and what shapes and colours I have. A truly holistic approach which I have not seen anywhere else. Her advice was honest and authentic and to the point. Her feedback supports my confidence and helps me to make bold and characteristic choices that totally fit me and my mission.” Marja Godvliet, Founder Women Entrepreneur Club.

“Since I have a specific sense of style, which I carefully developed over the years, I was a bit sceptic on whether Allison would tell me something I didn’t already know. She did though! Allison stands out with her human, and down to earth perspective (she could be Dutch!) on style. She didn’t stick to the “how to”, but elaborated more on the insight of what style means for YOU. It is that perspective, combined with her heartfelt and enthusiastic way of explaining it, that made me invite her to give a talk at my Centre for Conscious Connection.” Pauline Siebers, CEO & Founder Centre for Conscious Connection.

My 90-minute Workshop, “Style Starts Now” will help your audience delve deeply into my unique personal style formula. They will learn why what flatters is only data, why what matters is integral to personal style and how personal style can help make their dreams come true. Interactive, with a full-color handbook to do personal reflections and discuss in pairs, the Workshop also includes a short meditation to make sure the learning truly anchors. Each attendee receives a 20- minute 1:1 session with me as part of the experience plus a small gift.

WHAT THE AUDIENCE SAYS:

In-Depth Workshop: “Style Starts Now! Workshop”
“All of the positive feedback — I was prepared for a ‘What Not to Wear’ experience, but it wasn’t like that at all.”
“All the positive energy!”
“Allison’s presentation of the concept—including the advance workbook.”
“Allison is amazing!”
“I learned a lot — and felt pampered, too!”
“Now I feel ready to think about my wardrobe in a smart and intentional way — thank you!”

Throughout my entrepreneurial journey, I have spoken with groups about my lessons learned along the way. Whether it’s marketing practices, the path to profit or how mentoring is key to success, I am thrilled to turn around and offer fellow entrepreneurs a helping hand to get started, continue their journey or take it to the next level.

WHAT THE AUDIENCE SAYS:

As an Entrepreneur: “From Passion to Profit”
“Allison’s presentation at Spark opened up so much for me. By telling her story, it literally set me free in ways that I’m still realizing since I heard it. For me the moment that she said: “Anger was a signal of my passion!” an AHA! moment arrived for me. I saw it as giving me permission to pursue my passion. For me it translated to, “I’m not trying to “escape” my Mom life, I’m working towards answering my passion.”
As mothers, we live with a lot of guilt about wanting to be individuals and pursue our passions. We are always balancing between career (entrepreneurship) and motherhood. Allison’s admissions and being so very vulnerable in her speech allowed for me, and maybe more women, to be okay with it. AND, more importantly, to keep going forward!” – By Susan de Vriend, Life Coach at The Life Coach for Expats, at Spark! A Conference for Female Entrepreneurs, May 2016, speaker

“AMAZING talk! Impressive, practical and straight to the point.“, Claudia Mayer, Business Coach for Creatives & Designers.

Whether you need an in-depth interview or quick commentary on personal style, I love talking about personal style on the radio and television.

WHAT THE INTERVIEWER SAYS:

“I was privileged to collaborate with Allison when she was a guest on my global Internet radio show, “Turn the Page.” During our first conversation, I was struck by Allison’s warmth, energy, and excitement for her vocation. Having demonstrated her transformative impact as a Personal Style Coach through her work with hundreds of clients, workshop attendees, and readers, Allison was eager to share her Personal Style Formula to benefit an even broader audience. Allison is deeply committed to bringing out “the real person” in her coaching interactions. The integrity of her approach spills over into other aspects of her clients’ lives, like their careers, lifestyle satisfaction, and relationships. Her effectiveness both as a guest on my show, and in her writing and coaching, is also attributable to her humility, professionalism, kindness, and generosity. I found Allison to be flexible, accommodating, and an elegant communicator. I highly recommend her both as a Personal Style Coach, and as a speaker for any media platform.” VoiceAmerica Host & Producer, Hemda Mizrahi.

As a moderator, I bring energy and wit to even the most serious events.  Weaving the topics together from speaker to speaker is a joyful intellectual challenge and I can read the audience to elevate the mood or take a pause when they need a breather.
