Voted one of the Top Ten best motivational speakers in North America by Meetings and Conventions Magazine, Allison Massari’s quintessential story of courage and perseverance resonates with participants long after an event has finished. Hailed as “life-changing” “riveting” “extraordinary” “bold” and “deeply moving”, Allison instills the essential tools to quickly access grace and resilience in the face of challenges. Through her unified work as an international keynote speaker, executive coach, and acclaimed visual artist, Allison provides an exceptional blend of business acuity, creative perspective, and genuine care – profoundly affecting audiences worldwide.

Allison Massari has been recognized with esteemed speaking engagements, including a main platform keynote at the 2013 Million Dollar Round Table conference (audience of 8,600 from 75 countries), and a TEDx event in Spain. She has been featured on ABC, NBC, and FOX networks and stars in the award-winning international documentary, Resolve (2015). In this film, hosted by the Head of Special Forces for the US Military in Afghanistan, she teaches solutions to overcome adversity and PTSD. Her diverse client list includes: GE Healthcare IT, LPL Financial, Kaiser Permanente, PEI, Eli Lilly and Co., HIMSS/CHIME, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., Allscripts, and Siemens Healthcare.

Allison found remarkable success, happiness, and an undeniable “fire” within after overcoming two horrific car accidents that nearly took her life. In one, she was hit at 60 mph, burned alive, conscious the entire time, and sustained severe burns on over 50% of her body. She collectively spent hundreds of days in hospitals, doctors’ offices, and physical therapy centers, and learned to navigate her way to true healing, eventually creating an extraordinary life beyond anything she had dreamed possible. Amazingly, Allison views her experiences as a tremendous gift, one that gave her the tools and understanding to share with others. Her breathtaking keynote blends powerful life lessons with compelling, insightful, and awe-inspiring, stories, and offers actionable takeaways for people to immediately transform and manage their lives. “The truth is, the same internal fire and ‘command of self’ that I needed to heal my life is exactly what has given me success professionally.”

Allison’s vision and clarity, her honest and encouraging communication, and her gift in actuating the steps towards her clients’ success, make her an invaluable asset to any organization. She adapts her message to address the individual issues affecting each market and has worked with diverse indus- tries including Finance, Insurance, Sales, IT, Energy, Agriculture, Healthcare, and Non-profits. In Healthcare, Allison has quickly become a leading educator, helping to alleviate burnout, offering support for compassion fatigue, and providing a preeminent program on patient-centered care for Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Education Units (CEU). As Allison states, “Compassion heals the places that medicine cannot touch.”

A diversified entrepreneur, Ms. Massari has built four enterprising businesses in the past 25 years. In addition to her success as a professional speaker and executive coach, her thriving fine arts business and jewelry line, Massari Fine Arts, LLC, has received commissions from prominent Fortune 500 companies including General Mills, Lockheed Martin, and US Airways. Her sublime and dynamic visual art serves as a stunning backdrop to her inspiring keynotes.

Allison believes deeply in the power of community and compassion. On the advent of her own recovery she began helping children and teens with severe burn injuries. In 1998, Allison founded a revolutionary outdoor sports program, named after the man who risked his own life to save her, when he pulled her from her burning car. The Roger Pepper Adventure Camps powerfully build

confidence, hope, and healing in young participants. These innovative programs continue to transform lives to this day at the Adaptive Sports Center in Crested Butte, Colorado.

Allison Massari’s keynote programs are jaw-dropping, informative, and heartfelt. She captivates audiences with unforgettable stories about the power of kindness and incredible perseverance. Clients refer to her speech as the “Survival Guide to Being Human”. With compassion and sensitivity born from her experiences, Allison shares how to transform any challenge into an opportunity, teaching secrets to create against-all-odds successful outcomes and new beginnings.

“When a struggle enters your life, be vigilant in every breathing moment to seek and find the good that is going to come from it. Search with ferocity. Have an unbending belief. The day will come when your heart can smile and rest. If nothing else, your pain can sculpt your spirit and bring you the greatest of gifts… a humbleness, a generosity of spirit, and a quiet strength.” – Allison Massari

“I watched as the entire room rose to their feet in a standing ovation. Her work is phenomenal, and life altering.”

“I seldom am impressed by professional speakers enough to attend their sessions 8 times in 3 months. However, that is exactly what I did with Allison. Her words were simple yet penetrating as if I had never heard her before. I have seen her bring her audience to a wholehearted laughter and even tears and that is not an easy feat for any speaker. I never got tired of listening to her.”

Master Adversity, Triumph Through Change, Live with Heart

Allison Massari sets an unforgettable tone.

“Success takes courage. We excel, both personally and professionally, when we feel an internal fire, when we feel valued in what we do, and when we understand with great clarity the mechanisms inside of ourselves that allow us to successfully manage adversity. These qualities create transformation, vitality, and pinnacle achievements. I share what we all need to be able to handle the unexpected, to navigate challenges, to innovate, and to harness the tools to live with passion, focus, and genuine well-being. My goal is to always support people in attaining their highest potential while uplifting their hearts and fortifying the human spirit.”
