The Alison Experience

Each of my speaking engagements, workshops, and training sessions is designed to spark fresh ideas, build confidence, and overcome persistent challenges.

Whether virtual or face-to-face, a world-class event should leave attendees educated and inspired.
An award-winning organizational psychologist and professor, I deliver cutting-edge research in a fun and relatable way. My keynotes give audiences insight into how people think, act, and feel — and make people laugh in the process.

Love my approach, but want a different topic or format? I routinely design custom events to meet the needs of my clients. Whatever your challenge, if it can be informed by understanding the science of people, I can create a dynamic session to address it.

And, if I’m not the best fit for you, I can recommend another speaker in my professional network that will deliver.


I first met Alison when I took her Negotiations class in business school, and was very impressed with her ability to deliver content that is based on science with many advices and actionable items that you can execute in your work and personal life. Years later, I was very excited to have Alison as a guest speaker at our Women’s Network, and she did not disappoint! She delivered an amazing presentation that addressed strategies and tactics to help women overcome challenges in negotiation. During a time when we are being challenged to adapt our ways of working in virtual environments, Alison keeps her audience highly engaged with great sense humor and deep knowledge of influence, negotiation and leadership topics.

Alison presented on the use and abuse of power at our Best Practices Forum for Ethics and Compliance practitioners. Her comments were insightful and full of practical applications and her warmth and sense of humor deeply connected with our group. In fact, Alison’s presentation was rated as one of the best of the forum!

We started partnering with Alison in 2018 on a variety of trainings and engaged her expertise with the top leaders in our business. We have been so impressed with her ability to quickly understand the complexity of our business and adapt the content and format to our needs. In all of our engagements, Alison’s advice is high-impact, tactical, and universally valued.

At our global Sixth Street Partners firm Offsite in 2019, Alison spoke to our Women’s Network on Power, Advocacy, and Influence, tailoring content to a group of 50+ women across functions, levels, and years of experience. She also conducted one-on-one and small group office hours with members of the Women’s Network specifically designed to address their professional development goals. The Women’s Network found her teaching extremely relatable and impactful — she engages audiences with ease and makes a lasting impression.

Alison is one of the most impactful speakers I have ever seen and worked with. She presents in such a genuine and unassuming way that endears her to the audience, and then she delivers an impact through storytelling and practical tools that anyone can start using immediately. Her first event with us was so well-received that we invited her back for a second event with our clients. And, I’ve been able to personally benefit from her advice. After hearing her talk about The Art of Negotiation I used some of the techniques to acquire free gym passes on a business trip. She is truly changing the world, one free gym pass at a time. I can’t endorse Alison enough and I would jump at the chance to see her speak at every opportunity.

Alison was a perfect fit for our training conference for L&D professionals. She was flexible leading up to the event, adjusting her talk on negotiation to fit our audience. Alison was definitely a favorite among our attendees. She is a very dynamic presenter, engaging, incorporated humor and had excellent stage presence. Thanks for delivering a memorable and practical keynote!

Alison Fragale is a superb public speaker by any measure. I have had the privilege and pleasure to listen to over 50 of her lectures to audiences of a couple dozen or hundreds of attendees. As a mentor to those audiences, I often follow her presentations with small group discussions of her topics which are related to the art and science of negotiation and the consequences of power. Thus, I can calibrate how well her audience absorbed her lecture, which in every case has been outstanding. She is a master of her lecture subjects, and blends well researched facts, her opinions and humor to keep her audience engaged throughout her lecture. Alison is one of the very best speakers I know, and I’m confident she will meet the standards of any requirement she faces.
