Your Moxie Boss Coach
Like A Boss: 5 Tips For Creating Confidence & Success In Your Career
I've Been Exactly Where You Are Today......
For 17 years I was climbing my way up the corporate ladder – from a fresh-faced Graduate to one of embarrassingly few females at management level in a global investment bank. I had worked on three different continents, in two different languages, was managing people and teams, and budgets up to US$2 billion.
In the back of my mind I was always curious about coaching, and had dabbled in mentoring and company leadership programs, but had never found the time or felt the urge to hunt and peck around Google or Kindle to find that one “self-help” book that would solve all my problems and answer all my questions:
- How can I make sure I’m recognised and heard in the organisation, especially by upper management?
- How do I manage the 3am anxiety that keeps me awake every night, brain whirling?
- How do I effectively manage people so different from me?
- How do I manage a difficult conversation without resorting to the “compliment sandwich”?
- How do I know if I’m following my dreams, or someone else’s?
- How do I motivate my team when we’re all having a tough time?
- How can I effectively delegate all this work and still remain accountable, without micromanaging?
And then one powerful coaching experience changed it all overnight!
In that one session I felt heard and validated, and that what I was asking and experiencing was normal, and that there is a way to regain control, find the answers that feel right for me, and to live with confidence and a sense of calm empowerment.
And I resolved then and there that I want all emerging leaders to feel this way.
This is why Moxie Boss was born – you will always have my hand on your back, because I have come from the same place you are now at, and I have made it my purpose to help specifically you.
The term “Moxie” describes exactly what I want for you – the ability to face difficulty with spirit and courage. And thrive!

Following a double Bachelors degree in Commerce and Law, Alison began her career in Finance in 2003 as a Graduate at one of Australia’s largest Funds Management firms. 10 years and a Masters of Finance degree later, Alison gave in to her inherent “Wanderlust” and took the bold move to relocate to Frankfurt, Germany, where she delved back into the finance industry at Germany’s second largest Bank. A few years later, an irresistible offer to join one of the world’s most successful infrastructure investment banks came, and Alison found herself thrown into a whirlwind of Board Meetings, Board Directorships, team management, and responsibility as CFO of budgets up to US$2 billion.
After an overseas posting and 17 years in corporate, Alison decided to enjoy a sabbatical but in that time was consistently drawn to executive coaching, and began studying at the internationally renowned Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). Now a fully Certified Professional Coach and qualified ACC from the International Coaching Federation, Alison delights in helping emerging female leaders step into their power and embrace their Moxie.
