The 'real life' story from Alisa is both inspirational and compelling by nature. The true grit, determination to succeed, personal sacrifice and humanity of her journey were delivered with humour, pathos, and a conviction that resonated deeply with our audience. If the tears and laughter were any indication of how successful her delivery was, then the I guess the long line of those wanting to meet her personally was not surprising. Alisa ticked every box on our wish list for this important event.


I just wanted to say that your presentation this morning was amazing. I felt like we all went on a rollercoaster journey of emotions with you - from the lows of being injured through to the ecstatic highs of winning your medals - and then through to the most incredibly honest and heartfelt account of your time with your beautiful son. I go to a lot of these breakfasts and can honestly say that I have never been in a room full of people who would normally answer phones, check messages or get up during the presentations, who sat completely still and captivated by your every word. There was certainly not a dry eye at my table by the time you had finished and I have no doubt this was shared across the rest of the room. Anyway, I just wanted to congratulate you on such a captivating and entertaining presentation - and for having the courage to share your amazing stories with us all.

The breadth of the presentation was phenomenal. She was able to share and freely talk through extremely personal stories in a professional manner which made a huge impact on the audience. Alisa was able to share her sporting accomplishments and relate her learnings and the tools she used during this time to the corporate working environment. She brought fantastic personality and authenticity to the presentation which helped keep the audience connected and sitting on the edge of their seats!
