I seldom am impressed by professional speakers enough to attend their sessions 8 times in 3 months. However, that is exactly what I did with Allison. Her words were simple yet penetrating as if I had never heard her before. She makes you realize how powerful and long lasting a simple kind word, a warm smile, or a caring gesture can be. I have seen her bring her audience to a wholehearted laughter and even tears and that is not an easy feat for any speaker. I never got tired of listening to her.
