Regardless of what organisation we are in, the common thread is that we all deal with people. Business transformation occurs when we understand, respect and celebrate each others' differences. By understanding what motivates us, we find greater significance in who we are, and value in what we do, resulting in greater productivity.

By using this tool business leaders sleep better at night, eradicating personality clashes, and sick days often inherent when working with people, which costs organisations time and money.

"Allison’s presentation was captivating and engaging. The structure was clear, with appropriate opening and summary segments. In fact her wrap up, utilised an example from her business experience, that was one of the best I have ever heard in terms of cementing all the points she wished to convey and leaving the audience on a high note.  Allison comes across as passionate, energetic, dynamic and professional. Her use of humour really delighted our audience. She has a flamboyant style, that is delivered with a wonderful sense of audience engagement and consequently, Allison builds a solid rapport with an audience at an early stage. She is a highly skilled, warm and believable presenter".  Diana Parry, Marketing Manager, Chamber of Commerce Auckland

"Allison was passionate about her subject and held everyone’s attention.  We would class her as an excellent speaker with the ability to communicate clearly and enthusiastically". John Widdup, Director, Westfield NZ

"I have yet to experience a speaker with the same sincerity, empathy and humour as Allison.  With her knowledge and experience of individual personality types, Allie has taken customer service and the understanding of business and personal relationships to a whole new level, which is unsurpassed by any other presenter in this country.   Allie has a vibrancy and presence, which is apparent before she has even stepped on the stage.  She is already prepared to speak to the audience in their own preferred language, using the Personality Plus principles.  Clearly practising what she preaches.  This is all due to her incredible skill in understanding people and their needs.  It is this talent which she has packaged into a highly entertaining and motivating presentation.  This is information and skills every person should learn to utilise in their personal and professional lives.  Some comments from the audience:

“Ali you rock!!”  Your courage and honesty is inspiring”

“Personality Profiles – help me to understand clients better”

“Allison had so much passion on her topic and we all went away from her session on a high”

“Reminder of the importance of people”

It is clearly evident to us from feedback and the incredible positive response to her training sessions that Allison Mooney is one of NZ’s outstanding presenters.  She inspires, motivates and empowers her audiences.  She has integrity and humour, and her presentations and workshops should be taught to every employee and business owner". Rebecca Matthews, Managing Director, Women in Business New Zealand Limited.

"The work by Allison and the Personality Profiling has taken hold and we  are now planning to use the material in future team meetings, so the good work continues. More importantly perhaps, those with staff are taking into consideration the preferred feedback mechanism as part of their mentoring and management approaches.  It was a challenging informative and fun experience".  Lori Grantham, Manager Business Development, Telstra New Zealand

"Thank you for the Team Building Day your ran for me and my team.  I have been with Carter Holt Harvey over 11 years now and out of the numerous exercises I have been on, this one was the best hands down. I couldn’t fault your presentation or speech and this is probably why I am taking the time to write to you (something I don’t normally do). Full credit to your professionalism.  I’m positive with the day my team and I spent with yourself, we along with my company will benefit.  Actually I can already say that both my home and working life has already improved".  Grant Crackett,  Manager – Design, Carter Holt Harvey

"The session was informative, amusing, and the points were clear.  Identifying the personality of the client one is working with helps in selling into that personality rather than out of your own.  Not only was this seminar beneficial to the Consultants work environment in a retail situation, but could be directed to their own relationships at home." Kathryn Ockelford, Manager Training and Promotions, Shiseido

"Allie - that was a suuuuuuuuuuuuperb presentation.  The success of a presentation is often reflected by the number of questions and the "hangers on" who want to keep buzzing. You certainly wowed them.  Expect lots of leads from it - I have already recommended to my guys here that we need a session with you !  Russell Toplis, Rotary Youth Leadership
