Allan’s coaching sessions were exactly what I needed to focus on in order to achieve the important goals in my life. Allan’s expertise and effectiveness as a Communication Coach was clearly evident in every interaction that I’ve had with him. His motto of empowering ourselves being a foundation of all of our relationships is the one that I found most useful. It is amazing what a change in mindset has brought to my life and I would recommend Allan’s program to anyone who wants to be more confident, bold and effective as a communicator.

I have heard many motivational speakers and received tons of training and coaching. I can categorically say that none have been more effective than Allan Knight. His approach is simple, direct and highly effective. As a result of his coaching, my businesses have soared and even more importantly I am extremely content in my personal and family life.

Rodney Appleton

Allan Knight is an amazing coach and mentor. I feel better every time I speak with him. His energy, passion and enthusiasm are infectious. More importantly, his wisdom is profound and his teaching methods are practical and effective. He has not only helped me get through some tough times in my life but has significantly contributed to my bookkeeping business. I have also recommended Allan to many of clients who have experienced record sales after hiring him. I highly recommend Allan’s program to anyone who is serious about taking their life and business to the next level!

Michelle Pereira

The most valuable thing I gained from working with Allan was the importance of cultivating my relationship with myself first – what Allan calls your inner soulmate. It was only as I began to obtain inner peace that I was able to effectively pursue relationships outside myself with the ease I had always desired.
