Testimonials

We work with individuals and organisations worldwide to help support development and deliver transformation by Freeing the Inner Alice, here is what some of our community say about us:

“I attended the “Looking glass logic: Free your inner Alice” workshop at a time when I was reviewing my career story and my role as an organisational developer /change agent. The workshop was fun, creative, bonkers at times and it offered me new perspectives and insights, unlocking a dilemma I was facing at the time!"

"This session left me with a lot to think about. It was a fantastic to reflect on all the stories we tell ourselves that either help us grow or hold us back.
I really enjoyed the delivery and would highly recommend this."

I freed my inner self thanks to Albina and Chris’ keynote at the Staff Development Forum conference and further coaching at the House of Lords.

At the conference with over 100 delegates, I found Free Your Inner Alice session refreshing and motivating.  Albina and Chris had us hooked as they worked seamlessly together to keep the audience fascinated and craving for more! With their fresh and unique style, they provided guidance on how to think differently and change our ways to ensure we maximise our Inner Alice!

Their keynote presentation had left me on a high for the whole duration of the conference, I was excited, as I knew I wanted to change.
 
During a charity event at the House of Lords, I was nervous and worried about delivering a public speech. In the moment, I was coached using the Free Your Inner Alice approach which reminded me to believe the impossible things and to change my story to the one that makes me grow. In no time I was up on stage delivering a speech and I felt myself growing with confidence as I had everyone engaged and actively listening,  

Thank you for helping me free my inner Alice!

Through the Looking Glass

It was clear from the start that this was to be no ordinary conference presentation. The presenters did not introduce themselves, nor the purpose of the session, but launched straight in with a dialogue from Alice: the dialogue between Alice and the White Queen:

“I’m just one hundred and one, five months and a day.””I can’t believe that!” said Alice.”Can’t you?” the Queen said in a pitying tone. “Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.”Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said: “one can’t believe impossible things.””I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

They had a disconcerting slide that asserted that we were not going to learn anything from all this.

And recognising, on reflection, the art that concealed art: for example the beautiful circularity of ending where we began, with the need to believe in six impossible things.

So if the purpose was to leave me thinking, reflecting, remembering… then it was certainly an effective (as well as enjoyable) presentation; and much more so than most more typical conference keynotes.

I found the virtual “6 Impossible Things to Slay Your Jabberwocky” session to be very engaging and informative, providing clear and accessible thought strategies to help free ourselves from the negative self-imposed boundaries that we create. The approach captured the sense of curiosity, imagination, openness and fun of these much-loved children’s stories. The session addressed concepts and issues that I had thought about, pondered on and struggled with quite extensively over the years, and yet the speakers were able to provide a very clear and simple structure in which to frame these thoughts.
