Alison Shapiro, MBA

Alison Bonds Shapiro had two debilitating and nearly fatal brain stem strokes in her early fifties. She was profoundly disabled and, she believed, without a productive future. Today, after a remarkable recovery, she is a motivational speaker, an active business consultant, artist, writer, college board chair, and engaged grandmother.

In the process of facing the depth of her injuries, Alison discovered that her attitude could and would change everything. She came to understand this simple truth: It's not what happens to us that makes the difference. It's how we deal with what happens to us that will determine the rest of our lives. Difficult times come to all us. We each can discover possibilities in any circumstance.

An eloquent speaker and gifted storyteller, Alison's speaking engagements inspire and teach. Over and over again her audiences tell her that she has changed their lives and given them tools to face their challenges.
