Thank you for choosing such an amazing speaker today. She was incredible. I got stopped by almost every person that left with the same sentiments. Many said that this was one of the best events they have ever been to. I am grateful to have heard her message today; and, I know the chapter is as well.” EO St Louis

"I first met Alison on the ‘Walk In My Shoes’ fund raising and awareness project. Ali was a rock of good sense and committed to sharing her story with anyone who needed help or could help. She has an intuitive personality and a need to open things up for discussion until she understands all aspects of the issues. Ali is a doer and I am grateful that she has given so much of herself to raise awareness for mental health issues in Ireland."
"Alison Canavan was an uplifting, insightful speaker. We were lucky to have her keynote at our event; Refuel. She had our audience engaged, present, and even had people up and dancing. What I found most valuable was her takeaways for our team to lead a more meaningful impactful journey with their life."
"Alison's energy, insight and emotional intelligence make her a joy to work with. She's an honest and powerful speaker who can hold an audience spellbound, and she puts her all into everything she does. We've always been grateful for her support for the work we do in Barnardos, but more than that because she is a continuing source of inspiration and ideas."
“Alison was scheduled to present ways to practice self-care via mindfulness. Unbeknownst to her, her audience was a multigenerational mixture of skeptics and receptive team members who are analysts by trade. Even though she endured some technical difficulties, she did not miss a beat. She completely engaged the audience through her use of media, team exercises and animated narrative. Even months after the event, team members are still talking about her successful event and using the diaries that she created to further instill the principles of mindfulness. In fact, a few have suggested that they wished that she would come back on a regular basis! We highly recommend her, especially to gain tools to better insulate employees from burnout, COVID weariness and, above all, fear!”
“YPO St. Louis recently hosted Aly Canavan for an evening of Mindfulness. Her rating was a perfect 10, along with comments from YPO members stating how much they enjoyed the resource. Personally, I’ve hosted hundreds of events over the course of my 17 year career with YPO. I think Aly is one of the best resources we’ve ever had. I would highly recommend her to other YPO chapters.”
“From the moment Alison walked on stage to keynote our annual convention, to the moment she walked off, the audience was absolutely captivated. Our event was themed
“Transformation” and her insights, vulnerability, and energy aligned with the theme and inspired everyone present. As I looked across the room I saw people emotionally engage with her stories and grounding techniques. (Our executive team continues to use them to manage our stress to this day.) Even those uninitiated in mindfulness practices found her teachings practical for use in daily life. Our audience loved her message and we will be working more with her in the future.”
