About Me

ALL EARS is a monthly evening of inspiring stories told by real people. Join us each month to discover an absorbing mix of tales from influential authors, innovators, comedians, entrepreneurs, artists, not-for-profit founders, explorers and inventors.

ALL EARS has come from a desire to provide a break from the norm; an event for people who want to be inspired and who seek new stimulus in their day to day lives. It was started by two such individuals, Sarah Dryden and Faith Hill. Sarah, formerly Marketing and Events Manager at ?What If! Innovation in New York and London, has spent many years promoting ?What If!'s fantastic array of speakers at events worldwide and met many great storytellers along her way. Faith has spent 13 years marketing and publishing many well known media brands, during which time she has absorbed, enjoyed and shared incredible true stories in the written word.


What do you do? What kind of stories do you tell?

At ALL EARS, three to four storytellers every month are selected for their experience, knowledge and commitment and given centre stage for 15 minutes each. We invite real people, with a real story to tell in the hope that our audience leaves feeling inspired and energised. Past speakers have included the talented and vivacious Deborah Francis-White who guided our audience through techniques on how to be more charismatic; and Noel 'Razor' Smith who told his incredible story of his 33 years in and out of incarceration for armed robbery. Some of our speakers you will have heard of, others not. What they all have in common is that they are real people with an inspiring story to tell...

About Me

My name is Alezsandra and I live in London.  I've been married for almost ten years and have two wonderful children, a girl that's seven and a boy who is five.  My husband and I met at school and we've been together ever since, I'm very proud of that, it's almost unheard of these days.

 

I love cats and own a cattery and I think I have the perfect job.  I get up, play with cats all day and get paid for it.  Life doesn't get any better than that.

 

I'm interested in history and tracing my family tree.  I've managed to get as far back as the 1600s and I even have some royal blood running through my veins... very much diluted but that's not the point, it makes me feel important lol!

 

I like reading, swimming and pottering in my little garden.  I'm a "little" bit overweight and have just joined the Fat Loss 4 Idiots program to try and lose a couple of stone in time for my sisters wedding in November.  I've been doing all of the usual things, you know, pictures of very fat people on the fridge, chomping on carrots and the like.  I've also cut out all of the sweets and chocolate and go for a spoon of Manuka Honey whenever I have the craving for something sweet.  At least it's healthy.

 

So, nice to meet you all, I'm looking forward to being part of the community.
