ABOUT ALICIA

Alicia has a unique background that traverses three worlds:

  • A qualified lawyer in media law: Alicia has worked as a legal advisor for the New Zealand Broadcasting Commission (NZ On Air) and British Sky Broadcasting (Sky).
  • A trained actress: Alicia has performed on stage and screen.
  • An executive coach: Alicia has trained thousands of individuals across the globe.

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 on specifically 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.
