About Allan Knight

“I am a public speaker, author, trainer and coach. I help people to attract, connect and impact others first and foremost by mastering themselves. My Mind Fit for Success program is designed for those who are serious about taking the knowledge they already have, and finally put it into practice to ensure long term results.
I am originally from Montreal, and during my university years I had a life changing experience while travelling around the world. I came within a whisker of dying near the Mediterranean Sea, but was miraculosly saved. Soon after that, I went from being a jock who was obsessed with sports, to pursuing my spiritual side living as a Monk for 9 years of my life.

I went on to obtain a Master’s degree in Education from McGill University in Counselling Psychology where my thesis was ‘The quality of our relationships with others begins with the quality of the relationship we have with ourselves’. I observed that most coaching and training focused primarily on theory and short term emotionally charged seminars. True Self Mastery often seemed to be lacking within these approaches That was the motivating factor I needed in creating a highly, focused, practical and results oriented training program that could benfit millions of people around the world.”

His new book is due to be released in the next few months.

We had Allan as a speaker at one of our Mississauga meetings this past fall. He did an amazing job, and you folks out there in Vancouver are in for a treat. Spread the word throughout the Lower Mainland and beyond. Hmm – maybe the folks down in Seattle or even Portland might be interested. Or bring ‘em in from Alaska! - Greg Brown, Opportunities Administrator, HAPPEN Inc. Toronto

Allan Knight helped me to ‘clean up’ my head and create new, effective processes that not only allow me to perform at peak levels, but with such a clarity and acuity within my mind. I function now at a higher level. I also notice a Domino Effect, not only has my professional life been impacted, but also my private life as well. Thank you Allan! - Jaqueline Mess, Marketing Professional, Abbotsford

Dear Allan, Thanks for Saturday… It was phenomenal! I am starting to think about things in a different way. I can’t wait to incorporate all of this into my life. I know it is a process but can’t wait to make some definite changes so I am slowly working it into my life. This is what I have been looking for being here at this time… it is exactly what I need… thank you Allan Knight! - Vivian Fitzgerald, Entrepreneur, Victoria

“He taught me how I could control my mind, from feeling victimized by my own wandering mind, guilt, and impulses, throughout the day. Instead, I learned how to achieve and maintain mental clarity. I am now much more effective within all of my relationships, and people notice the change, too. I highly recommend Allan’s program.” - Julie Watts, Photographer, Seattle

Because of Allan’s coaching, I have become much more forward and confident in my communication and I am noticing my relationships improving daily. I’m more comfortable speaking in front of groups and people see me getting more powerful every week. Thank you very much Allan for helping me grow and succeed! - Bevan Bird, Social Media Coach, Vancouver

I wanted to thank you for all that I learned about myself through your course and how to take control of myself and my fears. I have learned that I can be more confident and work through the stress ….. In many ways, I have become more aware of my own weaknesses and what to do to help myself. - Joanne McLaren, Home Base Business Entrepreneur, Victoria

*Elevator Speech/Pitch: (Wikipedia) An elevator pitch is a short summary used to quickly and simply define a product, service, or organization and its value proposition. The name “elevator pitch” reflects the idea that it should be possible to deliver the summary in the time span of an elevator ride, or approximately thirty seconds to two minutes.
A variety of people, including project managers, salespeople, evangelists, and policy-makers commonly use elevator pitches to get their point across quickly. An elevator pitch may be presented in oral, written, and video formats.
An elevator pitch is often used by an entrepreneur pitching an idea to a venture capitalist or angel investor to receive funding. Venture capitalists often judge the quality of an idea by the quality of its elevator pitch and will ask entrepreneurs for their elevator pitches in order to quickly weed out bad ideas and weak teams. Elevator pitches are also used in many other situations. Personal uses include job interviewing, dating, and summarizing professional services.
