Speaking Testimonial


Posted on Tuesday 11th June, 2013

Here is a testimonial from a speech I did earlier this year at a St Jude Medical Conference. I just thought I would put it on my blog so it is easy for people to find. Lindsay is quite happy to discuss this further if needed so if you email me at allie@alliepepper.com I can give you his contact details.

Re: Allie Pepper

 To whom it may concern;

I asked Allie to speak at a sales conference our company held in February of this year. The theme of this conference was ‘Everything is Possible’. The brief I provided Allie was to illustrate to my team that ‘Everything is Possible’ despite what situation you are in, what age you are or what has gone on in the past.

 

From first contacting Allie to speak at the conference everything was very easy, simple and no fuss. Allie offered to come and meet prior to the conference to get to know me, understand my goals for the talk and share a little about herself. I must admit this was very re-assuring to get to ensure Allie had a clear understanding of what I wanted, and gain a glimpse into how she was going to achieve my goals. She maintained constant communication in the lead up to the meeting which was re-assuring to know everything was well prepared.

 

On the day Allie arrived early to ensure set up was correct and AV was functioning. This is essential as the photos and videos she has are a central part of her presentation and something that captivated the team she presented to.

 

I could say many things about Allie’s presentation, she is an amazing individual that has achieved so much in a short time. She is a great story teller and captivates her audience, and she is a confident and relaxed presenter. The strongest testimony I think I could provide Allie is that the group of 80 staff she presented to was at 3:30 on a Saturday afternoon. The remainder of the company had departed for an afternoon of free time and preparing for a gala evening ball. However my team remained behind to listen to Allie. Allie finished on time at 4:00 but questions and discussion easily continued until 4:30. Basically no one wanted to go and enjoyed the opportunity to learn from Allie and hear her perspectives. Even after 4:30pm many people remained behind to look at her gear, share their own personal experiences. This is a clear representation of how Allie connected with the crowd and reflects that her stories do inspire and connect with people.

 

I have no hesitations in recommending Allie to present to their team whether it be part of a sales conference or other team meeting. Whilst I haven’t personally attended, I would envisage her adventure based trips with teams locally and abroad would also build individuals and teams and inspire others to strive for greatness.
