Alice was able to grow her team, affect change and create a culture that was missing.

I can think of no one better qualified to make an impact on an organization needing help with culture and leadership!”—Matt Kelly, National Sales Manager Direct Marketing Solutions

As an executive advisor, Alice always managed to add a wise perspective to the conversation and to deliver it in a manner that was respected among her peers and company leadership. She has a keen sense of negotiation and knows how to put results and relationships before ego. Alice is also valued for her creativity—she’s a person who recognizes possibilities and takes action to realize them. Under her leadership our team developed entirely new programs and results for the organization beyond the ordinary scope of communications. Her vision created extraordinary growth and opportunity for me in my own career.

“I had the distinct privilege of working with Alice during a very tumultuous time, where she was part of a team transitioning from the client environment to HP’s Managed Services Division. Alice had the responsibility of managing all the group’s communications internally and externally, much of which had to be handled sensitively and crossed multiple organizations at senior levels. Her diligence, focus and attention to detail was exceptional; and she was particularly sensitive to managing the appropriate protocols without impacting leadership priorities. Alice was integral to the success of the integration, her vast experience was invaluable in helping the team navigate its way through some highly charged sessions, her positive and non-threatening disposition contributed towards her becoming a respected leader and enabler, ultimately leading to the team’s overall success.”—Dominique [Jodi] Andrews, Director Sales, Outsourcing/ Operations Management & Strategic Initiatives, ZA + US, Hewlett Packard

“Alice and I worked together during the first two years of the HP/P&G ITO/BPO account. She was the internal (employee) communications manager – doing the strategic communications around the transition and integration of the P&G employees, she was very involved with the HR group and the Account lead team including the Client Executive. Alice demonstrated in her role a combination of hard communication skills (accuracy, syntax, efficiency) with softer skills (understanding of the learning curve for transitioned employees, adaptation to new business rules, loss of familiarity with business context, international cultural differences, ); Alice acted as a true Global professional Communications manager and was a very valuable asset to the Account Transition/Transformation team.”—Jean-Louis Hospitel, Director, Hewlett-Packard

“Alice Melott is by far one of the best, if not the best, communications managers I have worked with. Not only does she quickly command a sense of what the business requires, but she also adds a broader strategic context and a creative touch which is truly phenomenal. Having been a communications manager in my career, I truly appreciate the breadth and depth of Alice’s experience and expertise. Not to mention she is a pleasure with whom to work.”—Bonnie Keith, HR Manager, Hewlett-Packard

“I’ve known Alice for more years than either of us cares to remember. She is one of those rare individuals who can get deeply technical but at the end of the conversation can always get to the heart of the matter, understand the value proposition…and then turn it into English. That she does it with such passion and good humor is just icing on the cake.”—Jonathan Yarmis,VP, Advanced, Emerging and Disruptive Technologies, AMR Research

“Passionate, professional, with key listening and business comprehension skills. Excellent communicator who will always deliver.”—Kieran McGowan, Programme Manager, Shell Services International

“Alice is a strategic marketing professional with a flair and expertise in writing and communication strategy. She is a wonderful colleague with strong interpersonal and leadership skills. I highly recommend her.”—Deborah Henken, Senior Marketing Executive, Marketing Strategy, Customer Acquisition, Go-To-Market and E-marketing
