Allison enables leaders to stand in their power and create meaningful impact in their world.
Allison’s career began in media, communications and politics, first as a network television producer and strategic communications consultant, and as an event producer and press strategist for a US Presidential campaign. She took the skills that were honed on the campaign trail to Russia and applied them to a 100-person operation to promote Russian Privatization through advertising, public relations and grassroots field organizing. Living and working in Russia provided the breadth and depth of perspective to understand how to be a successful global leader, to effectively collaborate, and to operate with cultural sensitivity.
After attending Harvard Business School, she worked for several Silicon Valley start-ups as a marketing and general manager with a focus on delivering media that matters and educational e-commerce. She wrote and pitched business plans, raised venture capital, led cross-functional teams, created operational efficiencies, and delivered impactful user experiences.
As an independent consultant, she worked for years with leaders of start-ups and non-profits, applying her business knowledge and experience to partnerships, funding, go-to-market strategies, and marketing. It was through the coaching and mentoring, a by-product of her work, that Allison discovered her calling, executive coaching senior leaders and rising stars. She received her advanced coaching certification from the Coaches Training Institute (CTI).
Allison is a natural human change agent. What excites her most about working with Women Leaders of the World 2018 is that never before has there been a greater need for empowered women to lead with their hearts and minds.
