"Allison’s keynotes offered inspiration and results that lasted long after her speech was done. For example, one of the many stories of impact included, after hearing Allison speak, a leader on my team self-identified as being caught in the victim trap, recognized her tendency to complain too much, took responsibility for her negative contribution to team dynamics and committed to practicing Allison’s formula."

Let's face It

Stress Is Typically By Default - Not By Design

You only have so much mental, emotional, and physical CAPACITY to DO, THINK, FEEL, and BE each day.

How your capacity is allocated often defaults to decades-old patterns of behaviour that cause leaders to feel exhausted and start to resent their success. We're taught that healthy lifestyle choices like exercise, meditation, and nutrition are the keys to fix the burnout crisis; but they are just a portion of the answer. It's possible to rewire your relationship with stress to maintain success and have capacity left at the end of the workday to embrace guilt-free time away from the grind.

Let's Discuss

Hi. I'm Allison Graham

I’ve been a professional speaker / consultant since 2006. I pride myself on providing a stress-free speaker experience for my clients. 

I consider myself a pragmatic optimist. My clients often describe me as ‘tough love wrapped in an empathetic hug.’

My superpower is seeing patterns in human behaviour and making frameworks so personal development is easier for busy professionals. 

I’m driven by my passion to relieve the behind-the-scenes inner angst that leaders often feel once they’ve achieved their desired success.

My fifth book will be released in 2023:
The Stress Illusion: Defy the Lies that Keep You Stressed and Create Capacity for What Matters Most
