An uplifting, energising, memorable presentation. Just what we needed to kick the conference off on a Monday morning. I've just heard banter in the foyer with hoots of laughter, so your message has been heard loud and clear. I couldn't tear myself away when I needed to be somewhere else. Thank you for sharing your stories, wisdom and enthusiasm with us.

The moment she enters the stage she has the crowd's full attention, and by the time she leaves the crowd is buzzing, wanting more - her message is all they're talking about after the event! She is a wise, insightful and incredibly humorous speaker. Although she is very funny, the key points of her message are not lost but are communicated in a very clear and concise way. She makes excellent use of props to help communicate her points as well as encouraging crowd participation. An outstanding, professional speaker, a pleasure to work with. Appreciate her generosity giving back to a worthy cause.

Rarely do you find a speaker who can teach, inspire, and entertain all at the same time. Allie Mooney is one such person. She has the ability to engage an audience from the minute she stands on stage. Most importantly Allie has a unique ability to impart valuable information through the use of humour. The knowledge she imparts is positively changing relationships in families and companies in every country she appears. I have booked Allie Mooney to speak to audiences of hundreds, and will continue to do so. This is testimony to the high regard in which I hold her as an international speaker and trainer.
