The Great British Expos

As a director Great British Expo's I have worked with Alison for many years and I consider her to be one of the best female entrepreneurial speaker in the UK. Alison's keynotes are always incredibly engaging, inspirational and entertaining. We attract over 6,000 business leaders to our events annually and have year on year invited Alison to keynote speak at several of our flagship events throughout the country due to her popularity. Most recently we engaged Alison to inspired the audience at our Windsor event with her talk on 'Tenacity using Growth Mindset'. The feedback we had was amazing. Not only was the audience moved by Alison's delivery style and hugely inspirational personal story, it also equipped and motivated them to help achieve their goals. I would highly recommend Alison to speak at any event, especially one focusing on sales which is her specialist field (she really sparkles).'

Alex Jones Hall
Grow Kent

'Alison spoke at our Grow Kent Conference November 2016 and was absolutely brilliant. She was first on and set the scene for the whole day. She has such a lovely style of presenting which really warms the audience to her. And of course her content was first class. 100% recommend Alison as she is such a lovely person and great to work with.'

Carole Black
IVC Kuwait

'After much research, we found Alison Edgar via LinkedIn. She contacted us proactively after I viewed her profile. In February 2015, she was the Keynote speaker for the first event in the Middle-East of its kind, teaching entrepreneurism and sales to business owners and sales professionals in Kuwait. The overall average feedback from all attendees was 3.7 out of 4. We were extremely happy and have rebooked her to deliver another event in October 2017.'

Madlen Krushev
Business Showcase South West and Broadcaster

'Alison is the real deal. Ultra-connected. Super-inspirational. The fount of all knowledge and also knows how to pack out an event and lead from the stage. Whether you're seeking a low-key 'fireside chat' or an all in, tell it as it is Keynote, I could not recommend her enough. My team would agree.'
