Interview with Allison Graham of Elevate Biz:

Allison Graham is a true entrepreneur and an amazing speaker. As she explains in our interview, she was not born a natural speaker. Graham claims to have been the red-faced girl in front of audiences in the past, but it is clear that she has overcome those fears! Allison business networking strategies have touched countless people’s lives and will continue to do just that. While speaking with Allison, her passion for what she does spills out through her words! This passion can be seen throughout her strategies and experience as well.

“Allison Graham is a sought-after keynote speaker, workshop leader and private executive coach, who teaches professionals how to grow their circles of influence and elevate their bottom line by catapulting their business networking skills.”

Our interview was originally filmed on video, however due to some technical difficulties it will be available at the bottom of the page as an audio file.

A special thanks to Allison and Elevate Biz!
