‘Alison chaired the morning of The London Book Fair’s Quantum Conference 2019. She is the ultimate professional, delivering all that was asked and more, and in a friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable manner. Additionally, she led an in-person conversation on the day, around the rise of non-fiction in both books and TV, which was quality, informed and perfectly delivered.’ – Orna O’Brien, Conference Manager, The London Book Fair
‘Alison gave an entertaining and inspiring talk to my Women in Business West Kent group recently. Everyone in the room really engaged with her talk and we all came away highly enthusiastic about writing a book and knowing that it can really help to build our businesses. She gave us lots of tips on what we need to do before we start and how to use a book strategically so it is part of our business and not merely an adjunct. She brought several examples of the books she has published across a wide range of business topics. They were all very professionally printed and very impressive.
If you need a publisher or someone to speak about publishing then I highly recommend Alison.’ – Emma Cox, Business Growth Consultant and Speaker.
