I had the great privilege of being coached in preparation for an industry keynote presentation last fall. I found my coaching sessions went much deeper than just preparation and presentation skills. We were able to dig deep into my own psychology and get me mentally prepared for the big day. I found our sessions to be uniquely tailored to my own personal needs. We reviewed historical footage of speaking engagements and had good practice sessions to help eliminate bad habits. I really appreciated the time spent outside of our coaching sessions thinking about my situation and how she could best help me reach my own personal goals. I highly recommend Alycia as a mentor and coach and I look forward to a long working relationship

I was fortunate to be coached by Alycia for my high stakes presentation for the largest event by Cisco and I probably lack the vocabulary to express how brilliant she had been throughout the journey. Alycia goes above and beyond when it comes to coaching by enabling deep introspection into the WHY of the entire presentation and I strongly believe that this is what creates the difference in an individual's session delivery. She goes into the little nuances viz. body language, vocal transitions, movements on stage, assessment of the physical stage and audience and adding LIFE to the presentation. She brings out the best in an individual and is an amazing mentor. She is a gem of a person as well and her advice and experience transcends into one's life as well if one is willing to learn. She is not one of the "fixed time 1:1 coaches" and constantly stays in touch throughout and beyond. I attribute my success largely to her and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking at guidance for their on stage presentations.I really look forward to working with her in the future again and wish that she is assigned to people looking to transform their public speaking and presentation skills.

She simply knows what is going on with you within 15 minutes and finds the right words to address it. It is a very inspirational experience. It has to do with her training but also with her talent.

Alycia has excellent coaching skills as she demonstrated her profound knowledge during our coaching sessions. She guided me to effectively run down my skill sets and expertise. Also, I could discover what matters most to me and what my aspiration is through the processes. I think that was possible thanks to her plethora of experiences in career coaching and knowledge of impactful communication. On top of that, she is outstanding in catching people's behavioural distinction and development points. From our conversation, I could always sense that she listens and tries to understand someone sincerely, which made her advice a critical contributor to my development. Sung Sik Hong S.

As a person that needs to speak to customers and partners on a daily basis, always thinking about how to increase my presentation skills is important.

Alycia was an amazing partner in helping improve and take my presentation skills to the next level. Alycia's approach is collaborative, engaging and highly effective Wayne Cuervo Director of Innovation, Cisco's Toronto Innovation Centre
