Allison Massari

Keynote Speaker: Executive Coach, Entrepreneur, Visual Artist & Burn Survivor; Top Speaker on Resilience, Change & Overcoming Adversity

Allison Massari Biography

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”, Massari 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, Massari provides an exceptional blend of business acuity, creative perspective, and genuine care - profoundly affecting audiences worldwide.

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: Capital One, GE Healthcare IT, Siemens, LPL Financial, Kaiser Permanente, PEI, Eli Lilly and Co., HIMSS/CHIME, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., Allscripts.

She 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, she 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.”

Her 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 industries including Finance, Insurance, Sales, IT, Energy, Agriculture, Healthcare, and Non-profits.

A diversified entrepreneur, 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, 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 Massari Reviews

  • When we opened the TEDxZaragoza conference with Allison, it was like dropping a bomb… Her work is so thorough, so careful. Every sentence, every comma, every pause, the pronunciation of every word, are doubly, triply checked and pondered. It is plainly counterintuitive that the result is so incredibly emotional despite this infinite attention to detail. Yet it is. As I later said to her, ‘It is a great power to be able to make people laugh and cry in only 18 minutes.’ How does she do it? My guess is that one of the secret ingredients is to tell exactly what you think, to show what you feel… to actually feel it on stage! It is very different from the careful work of an actress, who strives to convince that she feels something which is not there. Allison’s only aim is to accurately and intensely communicate what she actually feels… and the laughs and the tears in the audience confirm that she achieves it remarkably.

  • 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. She makes you realize how powerful and long lasting a simple kind word, a warm smile, or a caring gesture can be. 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.

  • I have seen and secured many keynotes in my marketing roles, and Allison is a rare treasure. She had the entire audience of executives completely engaged in her every word. She is a master storyteller and the way she delivers her profound message with immense grace, poise, humor and charm is life-changing. It is difficult to put into words how deeply her message of kindness and positivity impacts those who hear or meet her. We received rave reviews from our audience and would give her the highest recommendation possible. She is a remarkable person, presenter and artist! We also use the term ‘the Allison effect’ around the office to help us stay positive.

  • My job enables me to see world-class speakers quite frequently. Truly, I have never been as moved by a story as I was by yours.
    Wells Fargo Asset Management - May 04 2020

  • If you had been at (GE’s) Centricity LIVE, you could have seen the three-minute standing ovation that Allison got after her talk yesterday.

Allison Massari Speaking Topics

  • Virtual Events

    People need support now more than ever. There is a mindset of grit that we need in these days of the COVID-19 epidemic, and we also need overwhelming compassion alongside that required courage. We need to be gentle with ourselves, while also accessing our creativity to reinvent ourselves and our mindset. Allison Massari will provide you with her 1-hour keynote that can be customized live from her office or she can provide you with a pre-recorded professionally filmed and edited keynote. The pre-recorded professionally filmed and edited keynote has been especially well-received specifically because the audience feels like they are tuning into a live event where she is on stage. This elevates the professionalism of the virtual event. Additionally, Allison can tune in after the virtual streamed pre-recorded keynote for a Q&A or a fireside style chat with a leader or a moderator. This allows you to utilize her executive coaching skills. This keynote and her story of being a burn survivor is a perfect jumping point to discuss the mindset for how to overcome adversity, how to sustain hope, and how to move beyond what seems impossible. Allison Massari is ready to bring healing and hope to people, especially now.

    Option 1: The virtual streamed pre-recorded 1-hour keynote alone that is live-streamed.

    Option 2: The virtual streamed pre-recorded keynote plus optional Q&A.

    Option 3: The streamed keynote from Allison's office with or without a Q&A.

    Option 4: For clients who have already had Allison speak or plan to in the future, she offers a new program with her story of sustaining a traumatic brain injury which was a 2nd car accident. That takes about 20 minutes to share and then she would open up with a Q&A afterwards that could be moderated as well. This is approximately 45 minutes. However, it can be extended with interactive exercises.
