“I had the pleasure of attending an HR SHRM meeting where Alissa was the presenter. She has a very engaging presentation style that captivated the audience. Her topic was Millennial Engagement. She really is an expert in this field. She completely covered the topic from what millennials need to how best manage and retain them. At the end of her presentation she took the time to thoroughly answer all questions. I am on the programming committee for this HR group. In speaking with some of the attendees, we received very positive feedback. I would highly recommend partnering with Alissa if you need to attract, manage and retain your millennial workforce.”

“Alissa was a wonderful guide in the development in many of my strengths. She was an asset in brainstorming how to use both the strengths and my yet-to-be-developed characteristics in my daily life. She took the time to get to know me and understand what my true values and purpose in life was through this survey and program which allowed her to help guide me in the right direction in my personal and professional lives.”


“Alissa offered a great mix of visual, auditory, and group learning set-ups.  I’ve already used her advice and offered her tips to another employee who has struggled with communicating in the past.  Alissa offered a great presentation and is a great presenter! I’m hoping to participate in other workshops that Alissa offers.”


“I recommend that every manager attend Alissa’s trainings because it really promotes open conversations with employees, identifying various communication preferences between generations, and provides a deeper understanding of what motivates each generation in the workplace.”

Alissa is an engaging, informative and energetic speaker who commands the stage. If you have the opportunity to hear her speak, you should attend! If you have the opportunity to hire her to speak to your organization, you should! Keep up the great work Alissa!”


“Alissa engages the audience from start to finish. She is knowledgeable, provides an interactive atmosphere, and gives the opportunity for discussion so we can also learn from our peers.  Highly recommend Alissa!”

“A great and engaging speaker. I threw Alissa into the proverbial lion’s den: a semi-unscripted video-conference interview/ remote seminar with three classes of first-year undergraduates in Upstate New York all researching Millennial workforce issues for an essay assignment. For the entire session, she fielded their questions (and mine), answered them thoughtfully and authoritatively, held their interest (no small feat), and was generally wonderful. I was nervous about pulling the whole thing off, but Alissa was amazing and really made the whole experience not only valuable, but enjoyable. 10/10 will do it again!”
