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 spell-bound, 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.

Fergus Finlay, CEO Barnardos

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 exudes a natural warmth and openness and is never afraid to ask the difficult questions that we all want answered. It is this journalistic curiosity and search for honest answers that makes Alison a fantastic broadcaster

Alison has been a fantastic addition to the Allianz Active&Aware programme. Her enthusiasm and passion for Health and Wellbeing was palpable from the moment she arrived. Her presentation style is effortlessly engaging, exuberant and infectious, and most importantly inspirational as she demonstrates how everyone has the ability to take control of our wellbeing destiny.

Alison epitomises everything that is good about being Irish – generous, open, positive, full of life! Now in BeComplete, Alison has imbued those qualities into a roadmap for living well and to the full that anybody can follow. I wish Alison every success with BeComplete.
