As a speaker...
I craft my message with professionalism, with the intention to provide solutions and shifts, rather than just content.
I work with sensitivity to understand what the audience would like to learn and understand.
I used to be a shy, insecure and complex person. I have undergone a massive transformation, not just in my outer health & identity but in my inner landscape and self-beliefs.
I feel that as a speaker I am merely a conduit for growth and expansion. I do not lecture on topics I have not lived. I do not lecture but I engage and co-collaborate to extract meaning for my audience so that they can experience shifts in their life. I have been inspired by incredible global speakers both at Mind Valley and here in South Africa. Speakers who move audiences, speakers who are willing to show their vulnerability, speakers who live their brand.
They inspire me every day to live my message.

The Vibrational Energy of Speakers as Leaders, Teachers and Speakers
Below are some keynote ideas that I explore through my speaking.
Keynote - What is integrated living?
As leaders, energy is more important than the words which follow.
Energy is the foundation for all other senses and skills. What many people don’t know is that energy vibration can be learnt and harnessed. By integrating masculine and feminine energies, leaders can tap into a far wider spectrum of persuasion and impact, breaking the ceiling with grace and confidence.
Alison unpacks, through powerful personal story-telling, neuroscience and thought leadership, the role of:
- Mind and Body Integration
- The Power of Vulnerability
- Forgiveness and its power to re-write your history, your present and your future potential
- How Shame and Imposter Syndrome can diminish our power
- Humour and how it unlocks compassion
- Intuition as a GPS
- Conscious Sexuality and how it feeds creativity and growth
- Self-belief and its role in manifestation
- Understanding how courage works
- Living in flow: When your values and purpose are aligned
- Personality is not permanent and why
She teaches leaders how to be more powerful in tapping into both their feminine and masculine energies. She speaks to women on how to tap into their most powerful energies – owning their light with humility and grace to become powerfully confident in a changing environment, where feminine leadership is becoming an increasingly powerful tool.
Keynote - First Impressions: The Power of Presence.
First Impressions are as important as lasting Impressions.
“I wanted to change the world but I had no influence, no power of persuasion. I battled depression, yo-yo dieting, complexity and eating disorders to re-emerge as an Ambassador for Health and Integrated living, and as an Ambassador for Influence and Persuasion.”
- Alison Weihe
After a 22 year journey of Entrepreneurship, Alison shares not only the Corporate and Personal Branding lessons she has learnt, but how to pivot these in a more virtual world.
As a qualified Image and Styling Consultant as well as a Personal Branding strategist, Alison unpacks;
Part One: First Impressions:
Dress, Discipline, Preparation, Content, Professionalism, Clarity of Message, the power of imagery and story-telling.
Part Two: Lasting Impressions:
- The power of Persuasion rather than Performance
- The power of becoming an agent of change, rather than an expert in ego
- It’s all about your audience, it’s not about YOU, yet you are the medium for them to access the message.
Keynote - The Neuroscience of Speaking with Persuasion and Impact.
How to be a solutions-based relevant speaker / leader: How to unlock the power of your audience and how to facilitate participant’s experiences beyond listening to absorbing, adapting and acting.
Part One: The Foundation
Knowing your audience
· Body language
· The Power of the Pause
Part Two: Breaking the celling of higher level speaking through understanding the neuroscience of speaking and coaching and speaking to coach.
· Audience service to Audience Experience
· Performance to Persuasion
· Insight to Influence
· Automatically creating word of mouth referrals and testimonials
· How to value your cause, live your message, be your BRAND
Keynote - Visual Story-Telling.
Alison uses a powerful and riveting personal story to unlock the power of visual story-telling by focusing on elements of:
Alison draws on her experience of global speakers at the Mind Valley stage to explore how personal visual story-telling impacts audiences and shifts perceptions. She interacts with her audience to get them to explore how visual story-telling can impact and influence the message they wish to bring to the world.
Keynote - Manifestation: Mystery and Science.
In this keynote Alison explores how the neuroscience of manifestation, living in flow and the law of attraction assists participants to powerfully shift their understanding of how manifestation works.
Manifestation is not wishful thinking.
As Don Miguel Ruiz says “You can have many great ideas in your head, but what makes the difference is the action, without action upon an idea there will be no manifestation, no results & no reward.”
However there is a difference between driven, determined SMART goals & living in flow and in alignment with your purpose.
Alison draws on the readings of many different thought leaders, including Dr Joe Dispenza, Dr Michael Beckwith, Vishen Lakhiani, Steven Kotler & Katie Byron to explore how MINDSET influences manifestation.
As part of her exploration of mindset, she engages with her audience to explore how traditional perceptions of “failure” can suffocate one’s courage and resilience.
Instead she looks at how an expansive, curious, integrated, disciplined mind & body, living in congruence in harmony & flow can exponentially change one’s reality.
By creating a different inner environment & an evolved vision of one’s life purpose, one can create an entirely different outer environment. That is where the magic happens.
