• "Your Tedx presentation was AWESOME! You are a fabulous presenter - natural, engaging, funny!"

    - Public School Administrator


    "Listening to Alex Ellison speak so candidly and articulately about where our education is headed was insightful and thought-provoking. Her fresh ideas allayed concerns I have had about my own kids’ futures. I feel more excited and can see how any college “recruiter,” parent or future employee could benefit from hearing Ellison’s informative and useful perspective. As a TedX presenter, Alex delivered a presentation that had the whole room sitting at rapt attention. As a Producer of Speakers, I’ve seen a lot. Alex was amazing!" - Gretchen Bruener, Professional Speaking Coach
