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.

Alison is knowledgeable and professional while at the same time warm and authentic. She did an outstanding job facilitating an all-day education and coaching event centered on improving negotiation skills for members of our Womens INtrapreneur Network (WIN). The day consisted of small group learning sessions, a mentoring lunch, and a large group presentation: “WIN-WIN Advantage” where attendees learned valuable and practical negotiation tips. Alison customized her presentation to meet the unique needs of women in the workforce. Through the use of science, humor and storytelling, Alison kept the audience engaged. In order to reinforce learning, Alison recorded three podcasts that were then launched over the following weeks. In the podcasts Alison challenged listeners to apply their new negotiation skills and report back. Our WIN members are still talking about the experience. Alison is valued as an honorary member, mentor and supporter of our WIN network. We highly recommend Alison as a talented and effective speaker and educator!!!

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.

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.
