"Allison was one of twelve official Conference Ambassadors who worked to promote and support the event via our Conference Ambassador Program spear-headed by Cathy Freeman. Allison was an asset to the program, working with us on a number of events to raise the profile of the conference and its objectives. She also made fantastic contributions to the conference itself speaking at the Gala Dinner and in her role as MC/Facilitator of the Women’s Sport Festival held on the last day of the conference. 

I would highly recommend Allison as a professional, articulate and engaging personality who brings a vibrant energy and enthusiasm to her work."

“As guest speaker at our recent Heels of Steel luncheon, Allison inspired our guests, both women and men, with her passion and commitment to all aspects of her life.  It's clear that Allison plans, prepares and puts into practice her skills to achieve goals and never lets adversity stand in her way. She's a winner in all ways and I'd highly recommend Allison as a speaker.”

“Allison's presentation was nothing short of inspiring and her amazing successes to date, despite personal and life setbacks clearly illustrate the importance of setting goals, embracing positive thoughts and adopting an unrelenting faith in your own ability. Her passionate delivery and desire to motivate others left an uplifting energy in the room.  A breath of fresh air- I would highly recommend her as a speaker.”


“Allison, What an inspiration.  I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about your passion and commitment, not only to your chosen sport but also to life.  The challenges you have faced physically, emotionally and financially, would have been enough to make anybody give up.  The message to others was clear “don’t give up and don’t let anything stand in your way”.   I know that I will take away from hearing your story, confidence to challenge myself and push the boundaries that I have limited myself to in the past.”

As a member of our Question & Answer Panel amongst Olympians and Commonwealth Games athletes, I would like to personally commend you on your fabulous demeanour throughout the event…. You came across as confident, bright, relaxed and controlled, and the girls just loved you!!!”
