  • Artist and entrepreneur.
  • Survivor of two near-fatal car accidents.
  • Proponent of the art of self-mastery.
  • Expert in self-discipline and renowned motivator.

Artist and entrepreneur Allison Massari is best known for surviving two horrific car accidents and braving an excruciating recovery that would forever change the way she looked at happiness and her own life. She is now one of North America’s leading motivational and personal development speakers, teaching audiences all over the continent the self-disciplinary techniques she had to implement to heal, find inner peace, and take back her life.

In 1998, Massari’s car was hit at 60 MPH, damaging the vehicle to the extent that she found herself trapped inside as a fire broke out and melted her vinyl seat to her body. The situation was so dire that police initially declared the case a homicide. However, against all odds, Massari was rescued, leading to a challenging period of recovery and rehabilitation which lasted years. With some of her body burned nearly to the bone, she found that all she could do to deal with the pain was to become a master of her own mind. Ultimately, Massari did more than heal; she discovered her life’s purpose and an inner strength that she has since gone on to share with thousands of people.

Ranked among M&C Magazine’s “Best Keynote Speakers” three years in a row, Massari dedicates herself full-time to helping people reach their full potential through what she refers to as “the art of self-mastery.” She has engaged audiences across all sectors by engaging with her own experience and spreading a philosophy of compassion, courage, and resilience.

PROGRAMS

Massari has been called one of the best motivational speakers in North America. She speaks to pain as well as love, in keynotes which detail how to overcome the most grueling hardships. She describes how caring for the suffering means more than medical treatment; it means compassion.

Massari’s speeches touch her audiences with the warmth she so stridently promotes; in other words, she practices what she preaches. Her gentle yet powerful style conveys an under-standing of subject matter that could only come from personal experience. And justifiably, most of Massari’s talks are drawn from her experiences with pain and compassion. Her philosophy is one that could only be developed out of necessity, but it can be shared with anyone.
