What They’re Saying:

Alison is simultaneously funny, smart and engaging, and she has an extraordinary ability to connect with an audience. When you’re fund-raising, as we were when she did two separate performances for the Adoption Institute, all of those traits make a huge difference. And they certainly did for us.
—Adam Pertman, Executive Director, Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute

Alison truly is a unforgettable speaker. As she tells her own story in a hilarious but thought provoking way, she has a way of connecting to everyone in the room. Her passion is contagious and her approach is both comedic and remarkably wise and learned.

She was a triumph and the conference sold out because of her. It was a day people will never forget.
—Marilyn Regier, The Barker Foundation, Washington DC
