What clients say about Alicia

“I was very impressed by Alicia.  Not only was she a strong facilitator — clear, poised, engaging, excellent in her knowledge of the material, good on her questioning and listening skills, and in understanding of the dynamics in the room — she also was a very nice complement to our team.”

— Senior Manager of Professional Development, Top 10 Global Firm

“I have worked with Alicia on a variety of projects at different clients. Her training, coaching and acting skills are excellent, but I'd like to focus specifically on her world-class ability to give clear, well-evidenced and genuinely transformative feedback. Again and again, I've seen her work with participants in workshops, and offer razor-sharp observations which have an incredibly beneficial impact. Alicia is great to work with - you learn something new every time.”
