After much research, we found Alison Edgar via LinkedIn. She contacted us proactively after I viewed her profile. In February 2015, she was the Keynote speaker for the first event in the Middle-East of its kind, teaching intrapreneurship to business owners and professionals in Kuwait. We were extremely happy and have rebooked her to deliver another event.
