Ali is such a brilliant speaker. I became a big fan of hers in less than 30 mins. Thank you, Australia Post, for bringing in such an inspirational public speaker to our team day. Learned a lot. Very inspiring.
Alexandra looks beyond the accepted approach to topics with an acute and inquiring mind.
Dr Ali Walker hit the mark brilliantly. She presented with passion, authenticity and commitment. She had absolute ownership of her information and shared this in a most engaging and formative manner. Every attendee walked away with greater insight. It was a huge success and so very well received.
We are a relatively aligned and high-performing school team, however, we believe all teams can grow and improve.
Ali spent a deep reflective session with each individual member of our team. Everyone walked away feeling energised, feeling they revealed and focussed on aspects of themselves, their performance, their behaviours, and their personality that they may have known about, but they aren’t always cognisant of and may not be in the forefront of their awareness.
Sharing that with the entire team, and facilitating a day of deep connection, reflection, and team building was powerful. It interrupted our regular daily grind and operational demands and set us on a new trajectory of deeper connection and collaboration into the future.
We look forward to continuing our work with Ali.
Alexandra in an ‘inter-disciplinarian’ at heart – she is able to draw the strengths and contributions together from different disciplines to enable each of them to benefit from their respective insights – ensuring a more holistic and integrated approach to identifying solutions to problems.
