"I produced and hosted an Intellectual Property on Fashion talk at Thomas Jefferson Law School with an awesome panel of Speakers, including Deborah Greaves, General Counsel at True Religion Jeans and Allison Andrews.  Allison provided invaluable insight into the business side of the Fashion Industry. Allison's speaking style was very exciting to all in attendance- she has a wealth of knowledge, but even more is an inspirational speaker. Her talk on the emergence of San Diego as a center of fashion was both farsighted and funny. Allison is great on her feet and in answering questions. There was no doubt based on the audiences reaction her speech was a hit- everyone enjoyed her humor, humanity and fluid yet approachable speaking style. As an organizer of many conferences and a public speaker around the country, I was flat out impressed by Allison's content and delivery and her ability to connect with the audience."
