Alison Charles

Location: London E6
Alison Charles aka Diva on a Harley

Alison is a speaker, singer and entrepreneur, you would never know that Alison was a painfully shy child who would rather have hidden at the back than perform at the front. It takes persistence and courage to change direction, and that is what Alison seeks to help and inspire others to do. Alison helps entrepreneurs and organisations to understand the skills that are critical to personal and professional resilience and business success. She started her career in the British Army in the Intelligence Corp. It is a high stress high reward environment.

The secret weapon
For Alison, her secret weapon is about 570lbs of superfast metal sitting in her garage. Do you know what yours is?

Passionate about supporting Soroptimist International (SI), she wanted to develop a speech that was suitable for a local and smaller audience and use the money towards supporting local charities that her local SI clubs work with.

About my talks...

I do not use any slides, but my talks do involve optional funny songs that are part of the talk.  I bring along a small pa system so my only requirement is a table and access to a power point.  Talks usually last for 45 minutes, with questions if required, and can be adjusted to suit requirements.  Talks have been given to small groups of around half a dozen up to an audience of 2,000, and all stages in between!


From £50 plus travel expenses of 30p per mile if more than ten miles from my home address in London E6.  (I regularly give talks both nationally and internationally at a much higher fee but this talk is specially designed for  smaller local organisations and all fees will be donated to Soroptimist International East London)

Subject to availability, I am happy to attend at short notice.
