Alison Neate

Alison is passionate about people finding their potential in life, and through this living their life to the full.

On leaving school she started work locally in an insurance company, later being promoted into the City and latterly working in different companies and running big change projects at Board level all over the world. She has worked as a Director of a FTSE 100 as well as being an ex-partner of one of the big 4 accounting firms. As a result of the diversity of roles that she has done, Alison has built up a great understanding of different cultures and through this experience developed a love of new things. Alison cares and respects the fact that we are all unique and individual. Alison’s father was inspiring and encouraging and she puts a lot of her success down to the belief that her parents instilled in her – that she could do anything. The remaining part of the success she believes is due to hard work, energy and lots of confidence!

In July 2016 Alison decided to leave the City life and spend more time at home. She is currently training to be an independent celebrant. Alison is married to an ex-serviceman who she says ‘has taught me the value of life; of being and living here in the moment; of the joy of celebrating love, and the importance of having fun’.
