 About: About Me
About Me | I have Life

Alison has been speaking on the professional speaking circuit for several years. Her aim to 'make a difference' has been overwhelming as she has spoken to countless thousands of people which include large business corporations, women and social groups as well as several schools. She has addressed international audiences in over 20 different countries including the USA, Australia, Europe, Asia and Africa.

Audiences sit in rapt attention as Alison speaks of the brutally cruel torture to which she was subjected and how she has overcome the challenge of that experience by applying her own ABC - Attitude, Belief and Choice. You learn to recognise the importance of attitude at all times. You will gain insight into the power of belief in yourself and she will share of the freedom and responsibility of making choices, no matter what happens in your life.

Not everyone has the natural talent to inspire others from bad experiences but her message teaches how valuable life is and that the solutions to the challenges facing us lie within ourselves. Alison weaves her three strands of her life's philosophy - attitude, belief, choice - into an unbreakable lifeline of strength for all to hold onto as a life skill never to be forgotten.

Penguin Books S.A. published Alison's story "I HAVE LIFE" in November 1998. The book recounts in riveting fashion the story of her ordeal, will to live and miraculous recovery, both physically and mentally. A powerful message of inspiration written in an un-putdownable style.

"FOR THE TOUGH TIMES" was published by Penguin Books in 2002.
