"Inspiring and informative…Alison Trachtman Hill addresses the hard issues that tweens and teens deal with on a daily basis. After hearing her motivational talk to Moms on cyberbullying and peer abuse at a workshop in New York City, I couldn’t wait to pull her into Reflections Publishing’s “Kids Helping Kids Through Books” series.  Alison was a pleasure to work with and extremely dedicated to making her piece of the Expert Advice section as helpful and user-friendly as possible.  Her commitment to the publication as a whole translated into many hours spent working with me on the book, and I greatly valued her time, attention to detail, knowledge, and passion for this work."

We hired Critical Issues for Youth to provide us with research services that would help us more effectively engage with nonprofit and government organizations. Alison and her team supplied us with a comprehensive understanding of how best to work within these sectors and delivered exceptional results in a timely manner.  I highly recommend Alison and her team at CI4Y – they are passionate and dedicated individuals who have extensive content knowledge.

-  Adam Schrier, Melissa & Dou


"I remember my first conversation with Alison – full of determination, passion, smarts, and zeal to move the meter in substantive ways. I marked right then and there as a rising superstar on the educational media/technology landscape. Alison is a big thinker wearing “sensible shoes” – inviting our team at FableVision the room to think out-of-the-box – but gently balancing the reality of time line and budget in a way that kept everyone energized and pushing for best-in-class results. I will never forget the Intergalactic Bracelet Race board game we did together – where her creative strategic thinking and project management provided the guidance for our team to create this award-winning learning experience to empower young girls. I look forward to watching Alison’s career – and how she moves the world to a better place with her talent and relentless pursuit of excellence."

"Alison worked in anti-violence education and invited my partner and me to present at the Girl Scouts Relational Aggression Conference. She was more than welcoming, extremely organized and veryprofessional. Her work in cyber bullying is very important and her help with our company Adina’s Deck is appreciated to this day. I would highly recommend her to anyone in this field or any other areas she pursues. She will be a great addition to your team as she was to ours!"

-  Debbie Heimowitz, Creator/Director/Producer, Adina's Deck


"Alison hired 360KID for work she was doing as a Project Manager at Girl Scouts of the USA. She always followed through when we needed information, and had an uncanny attention to detail when it came to setting up the contract, paying invoices, and generally moving the work forward. I loved working with Alison and believe the feeling was mutual, as she continues to look for ways to work with 360KID on future projects."

-  Phyllis Kaplan, Director of Sales, 360KID


"I had the privilege to work with Alison on two groundbreaking products for the GSUSA Healthy Relationship series. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Alison is organized, thorough, and oh-so-willing to go the extra mile to ensure that her final product exceeds expectations. For Healthy Relationships, she not only got a great product produced; she also fought hard (and “upstream”) to make sure that it was distributed in a way that would genuinely reach the target audience. As a vendor, I appreciate her respect for our team’s budgetary and timeline restraints; as a producer, I appreciate her vision, thoroughness and attention-to-detail; and as a person, I appreciate her positive outlook and pleasant nature. I was pleased to have this experience, and look forward to the opportunity to work with Alison again in the near future."

-  Christine Donadio, New Business Development, 360KID


"I worked very closely with Alison on some projects in the Healthy Relationship Series with Girl Scouts of the USA. I can honestly say that Alison was a pleasure to work with! From the start, she was extremely organized, and always very timely in responding to our questions. It was also very clear that Alison was passionate about her work at Girl Scouts, and had an extremely broad understanding of the initiative she was in charge of. Beyond that, when faced with an obstacle, she knew exactly what to do to get the job done. Alison has a great sense of humor, and her level of professionalism is unmatched. In the end, the marketing pieces we produced for her were so well received that she was a big advocate for Firepower Design, and we are very appreciative of that. I sincerely hope our paths cross again in the future."

-  Rachel Bohn, Operations Director, Firepower Design Co.


"As a design and advertising firm now in its 10th year, we've worked with hundreds of people in all walks of business. 95% of the time, those people fall into two categories: Big-picture thinkers or smaller-picture do-ers. Alison is both. And that’s pretty rare. There are a lot of big-picture folks out there that don’t know how to execute. Conversely, there are a lot of people who can get things done, but don’t see the real reasons for their actions. Alison is the rare exception who totally gets it. In our work with her, she is extremely organized and thorough, always ready with either a birds-eye view or a detailed explanation. Easy to talk to, her sense of humor makes projects a pleasure. She delegates as appropriate, takes the reins when she needs to, and offers an exceptional level of professionalism. We would be honored to continue to work with her, and hope to continue our relationship."

-  Andrew Billmann, Partner, Firepower Design Co.


"I worked with Alison on the Sister to Sister project. She was not only a representative of our client, the Girl Scouts of the USA, but the manager of the entire interactive project. She had a great hands-on approach but didn’t micromanage and allowed my crew to do what they do best. She was always available for any questions we had and always clear in what she wanted. Alison was extremely easy to work with. She handled any difficulties or problems that arose with the absolute, utmost composure. I would cherish any opportunity to work with Alison on any project in the future. "

-  Brandon Sheaffer, Director of Media Solutions, WITF, Inc.


"Alison was recently a guest blogger for NetSmartz Workshop. We were all extremely impressed with her expertise and professionalism. Alison is a pleasure to work with, an excellent communicator, and her final product was great."
