What drives our choices and our behaviour? Why do we click with some people and clash with others? How do we click instantly with someone? This topic can be a keynote or a workshop. Prior to the workshop, participants complete Ali’s original personality assessment, which identifies an individual’s connection type and leadership type. and motivational style. During the workshop, we explore what these types mean for you, your relationships and your team.

Ali once again delivered on our preferred topic with enthusiasm, excitement and she is just a joy to listen to. Her delivery is exceptional and has an excellent ability to read her audience and deliver key messages accordingly. She is very engaging and interactive, opening up questions and discussion throughout her session. Her messaging is also very thought provoking, allowing us as a business to then work together to understand how we can implement the best practices and ideas generated by Ali.
Great presentation, great subject matter, continued discussion after presentation on topics covered by Ali.
Ali is a passionate and inspiring speaker. Her presentation to the Suncorp Intermediaries Business in Sydney and Perth this year on the Walker Profile was brilliant. She brought our teams on a journey to understand our engagement style and how to leverage this to build stronger relationships within our client and broker networks.

Ali Walker has been a brilliant addition to my Saturday morning show on 2GB and 4BC. The audience feedback has been remarkably positive with people having a real thirst for Ali's knowledge and advice. She presents in a manner which is easy to comprehend, essential for talk radio - she's witty, engaging, positive and as host I've found her to be exceptional at ensuring the message gets through without a 100 words when 10 will do. An outstanding, thought provoking contributor.
