Resiliency Ninja, Top-Line
The best there is at:
Finding and uncovering glitches in a businesses’ sales and profitable relationship approach, then providing solutions to stop the leaking. Observing and teaching easy-to-apply patterns to gain access to decision makers and increase top-line revenue. Also, has a knack for helping people get through tough times and not let their setbacks in life and business stop them from achieving success.
Allison Graham has always had a knack for uncovering glitches and fixing things: kinks in the sales process, networking woes, marketing failures and ultimately setbacks in her own life, especially during her decade of hell when her life went awry.
At the top of her game, while running a successful company, Allison experienced a harrowing series of accidents, personal losses, and debilitating injuries which limited her mobility and stamina. Working through the excruciating pain, she refused to be broken.
Allison’s story has motivated people to look beyond their current circumstances and challenges. She uses the lessons she’s learned to help people elevate their life, rather than accept their plight. In sales, learning how to be resilient will set you apart from your competition.
Through her incredible determination and resilience, Allison Graham has become a mentor and beacon to those who fall in the face of failure, which has earned her the moniker, Resiliency Ninja. She has chronicled her journey in her latest book Married My Mother, Birthed A Dog: How To Be Resilient When Life Sucks.
Allison has also authored the bestselling book From Business Cards to Business Relationships: Personal Branding and Profitable Networking Made Easy! (Wiley 2012).
In her consulting practice at Elevate Biz, Allison inspires people to double their business and achieve sales and networking mastery. Celebrating over ten years as a top-line revenue-growth consultant, she loves to share her signature frameworks including the Evolution of Profitable Relationships, the Sweet Spot of Profitable Activity and the Infinite Sales Sequence. Her clients include some of North America’s most influential businesses, financial institutions and associations.
It all began when leaders from large financial firms tried to recruit Allison for business development roles. Instead of going to work for the firms, she counteroffered by suggesting she teach their teams how to get connected for business and build their own profitable network. She focused initially on teaching people how to open doors to decision makers, but evolved her message to include the entire prospect-to-client-to-referral life-cycle, after seeing her clients master the front-end work, but then not keeping their approach consistent to retain clients and leverage them as referral sources.
She speaks throughout North America and has been featured by the media including the Financial Post, Globe and Mail, Fast Company, Investment Executive, Huffington Post and The Bottom Line as an authority on what it takes to develop profitable relationships.
Each week her ability to see how companies can improve their client experience is highlighted on her radio segment called Small Business Lessons from the Big Business Headlines on the Craig Needles Show on AM980.
Allison is proud to have been named to the inaugural Top 20 Under 40 Economic Trailblazers’ list by London Business Magazine and continues to mentor emerging leaders and volunteer for several charity causes including the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
