Alicia’s clients include CEOs and senior leaders at Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies. Among others, she’s worked with: the CEO of a multi-billion-dollar healthcare company to use his platform to transform health and healthcare in America, improving the health of millions; the CEO of one of the world’s largest global hospitality companies to address social isolation, bettering the lives of millions of customers while driving business performance; and the President and COO of a global entertainment company to reset the company’s strategy for worldwide growth and impact. Her efforts have resulted in large-scale organizational transformation, sustainable business results, and meaningful social change.
