"At our May 2012 annual conference here in Dublin we were delighted to have Alison's participation as chair of our key opening panel discussion. For an audience of employment lawyers we had chosen the controversial topic: 'Is there a future for the Employment Lawyer?' Alison ably steered the panel through that minefield, combining this with coordination of electronic voting and live twitter feeds, ensuring attendees came away suitably challenged to continue the debate."
Ian Moore, Chair, Dublin conference committee, European Employment Lawyers' Association

I would highly recommend her.”
