When working with Alison on Palliser’s DiscoverU Student Leadership Conference I was exposed to everything from public speaking, formal presentations, brainstorming sessions, to conference calls and meetings while planning the logistics of the conference. Not only did Alison encourage students to be leaders in various elements of the project but she found ways of inspiring leadership through her charisma and positive attitude.
