About the Speaker

Alyson Van Hooser is not your typical business speaker. Alyson brings a fresh, relevant perspective to the new challenges that leaders face today, teaching her audiences how to engage, motivate, and retain a multi-generational workforce. The bonus is that along with her expertise, Alyson makes a one-of-a-kind connection with the audience that never fails to delight and inspire.

With a life resume that includes tough early years that taught her how to turn challenges into opportunities, Alyson achieved rapid success working her way up in the food, retail, and finance industries. She was a City Councilwoman by the age of 30, she works with a wide range of organizations as a keynote speaker, and, as if that weren’t enough, Alyson tops it off by being a mother of four.

Alyson’s unique life and business experiences led her to discover the immense power that comes when leaders own the responsibility of truly understanding and intentionally connecting with the people they serve.

Her books Level up, acceleate your success, and soon-to-be-released Infinite Influence unveil powerful stories of lessons learned through struggles, and provide practical strategies needed to create and sustain success in life and at work.

As a speaker, Alyson Van Hooser is the real deal, and her heartfelt connection with people is a key to her effectiveness on stage. Her distinctive combination of wisdom, energy, humor, and practical strategies inspire and motivate audiences to take action on ideas that drive both organizational and personal success.
