Meetings & Conventions magazine lists Allison Massari as one of the top 10 best speakers for “motivation” in the United States. She was equally honored as a main platform speaker at the 2013 Million Dollar Round Table (audience of 8,600). Through her unified work as an international keynote speaker, executive coach and artist, Allison ignites vitality, rebirth and renewal to audiences worldwide. She has been featured on ABC News, NBC, FOX, and in Family Circle Magazine.
Allison assists people at deep levels, equipping them with tools to better manage their lives, to be in the world vital and grounded. She has become a fiery voice for the potent power of compassion, kindness, and indestructible perseverance.
Massari’s professional career began with diverse achievements as an entrepreneur. She created four successful businesses over the course of 25 years. It began with a thriving fine arts business and jewelry line, Massari Fine Arts, LLC. Among her accolades were commissions for Fortune 500 companies including Lockheed Martin, General Mills and US Airways. With characteristic vigor, she launched her coaching and speaking career. Within months she was coaching CEO’s, and was preparing to appear in an international documentary focused on teaching how to successfully overcoming adversity. Within a year and a half, she was invited to give a TEDx talk in Spain on “The Future of Happiness”. And within two years she was voted the “#1 Rising Star in Speaking” by the National Speakers Association, and was traveling internationally, speaking and coaching full-time.
Her more serious credentials come from her life experience. Allison Massari found peace, purpose, and happiness after overcoming two extraordinary personal tragedies. In 1998, she survived a 60 mph car crash where she was trapped and burned alive; conscious the entire time. Just three years later she was hit again at 60 mph and sustained a closed-head brain injury. Allison has always believed in the miraculous. Her fiery determination and the love of family and friends helped bring her to a full recovery years later. She says, “I didn’t want to just heal. I wanted to feel peaceful. I became relentless in my pursuit to find the answers to life and to master it in totality.” The triumph of her physical and emotional recovery inspired Allison to propel her business to pinnacle achievements. She revived her art business with a 100% increase in sales and was awarded placement in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, FL.
Allison Massari has dedicated her speaking career to wellness, well-being, change, adversity and success – inspiring participants with tools to more effectively manage their lives. Her mission is to bring transformation to individuals, businesses and communities. She also enjoys delivering keynotes to healthcare audiences for CE credits – to heal burnout in medical workers and to enhance patient-centered care. Her message focuses on the power of the human connection. In her own words, “Compassion heals the places that medicine cannot touch.”
As a sought-after private coach, her highly effective methods have enabled her to form bonds as a trusted confidante to CEOs, executives and entrepreneurs. Allison captures the hearts of audiences and clients as she demonstrates how to move forward with speed and grace. She is one of ten people in the world chosen to teach how to successfully overcome challenges in the international documentary film “ReSolve” by Polaris Global (release date soon). The film is hosted by the Head of Special Forces for the U.S. Military in Afghanistan and focuses on solutions to come through post-traumatic stress.
Over a decade ago Allison Massari began helping children with severe burn injuries. Her revolutionary programs with these teens were founded in 1998 and they continue to transform young people’s lives at the Adaptive Sports Center in Crested Butte, Colorado. She named these programs, “The Roger Pepper Adventure Camps” after the brave man who pulled Massari from her car, saving her life and risking his own. Her work stems from a desire to give back and to be involved in the medical community that nurtured her as a child and gave her a second chance at life.
“I’ve come to a place where my heart pounds with excitement instead of fear. I learned how to transform my pain and how to take control of my life. If I could do this with my own life and under such extreme circumstances…imagine what you can do with yours.”—Allison Massari

“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. When we opened the TEDxZaragoza conference with Allison, it was like dropping a bomb. 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.”
