Dr. Allison Alford, PhD
I grew up talking about talking, which means I have loved communication all my life! I’m the communication expert behind Good Talk Communication Consulting and the one who will do coaching, workshops, and consulting with your team. I earned a MA and PhD in Communication Studies from The University of Texas after completing a BA in International Studies from Texas A&M University. I use my vast knowledge of communication strategy, relationships, and personal development to help you change your experiences in the workplace. My favorite phrase is used after a difficult conversation when you reach your hand across the table and say, “good talk.” There’s nothing more satisfying the connecting with another individual collaboratively.
I currently live in Waco, Texas where I am a Clinical Associate Professor at Baylor University teaching MBA students and undergrads the best tools for professional communication. When not working, I enjoy reading, podcasts about business topics, drinking obscene amounts of coffee, and taking long walks with my kids and husband.
Finance and Operations
Mr. Joe Alford, M.A.
As a native Texan, I grew up playing sports like basketball and football, then grew my passion into a career. I spent 15+ years teaching and coaching in Title I public schools, using every tool in my kit to teach the kids that are hardest to reach. My degrees (B.S. in Sports Management and M.A. in Education) are from Southwest Baptist University in Missouri where I played football and learned to be an effective teacher and coach.
After moving to Waco, I transitioned to higher-education and now work with Baylor University student teacher interns to grow their skills in the areas of physical and special education. On the side, I invest in real estate and like to stay on top of the latest economic trends and financial markets. Email me if you need any help with the Good Talk experience.
