About Gina Dallison
Gina was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2009 which led her on a journey of research, empowerment and self-discovery. Her happy positive outlook is a real example of what can be achieved when you are still living with disabling symptoms of a chronic illness.
After experiencing additional/personal life challenges in 2017 which set off a severe MS episode and prompted her to leave her corporate training role to fully embrace being a Life Coach.
Honest communication was a theme that kept emerging for her. As she reflected, with frustration, how parting with her last corporate position could have been so much better for both her, her health and the organisation, if there had been better channels of communication.
With compassion and empathy, she has the ability to get to the crux of problems
through effective communication, developing a solution that best suits both the employee and organisation.
