Allison graham bio

Allison Graham inspires individuals around the world with a fresh perspective to rethink stress, resilience, and problem-solving so they can optimize their performance, develop stronger connections, and create harmony in the workplace – even when the pressure won’t stop.


Prior to launching her keynote speaking, training, and consulting practice, Allison worked as an executive director of a mental health organization and in sales and marketing positions within numerous industries. She has also served several charities and non-profit organizations as a volunteer and board member.


Allison is the author of several books, including Take Back Your Weekends: Stress Less, Do More, Be Happier and From Business Cards to Business Relationships: Personal Branding and Profitable Networking Made Easy! Her upcoming book, Reset Your Relationship with Stress: Find Ease without Losing Your Edge is already creating a buzz as a game-changer in the stress conversation.


Allison Graham is a special guest expert for many media outlets including CTV Your Morning, CP24 Breakfast, Global News, and Breakfast Television. She can also be heard regularly on CityNews 680 business reports that air across Canada as she speaks about stress and resiliency in the workplace.


Post-surgical nerve pain forced Allison to rethink her own approach to stress and problem-solving. Now, she shares her library of innovative and creative frameworks that kept her business thriving during her toughest times. Through thought-provoking, high-impact keynotes, training and coaching programs, Allison’s visionary approach inspires a culture of happier, more engaged, resilient leaders and employees.

Don Ludlow, Regional Vice-President

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.
