Alice Bonasio is a Writer, Academic and Strategic Consultant specializing in Technology and the Creative Industries. Over the past 15 years she has helped start-ups, corporations and institutions shape their communications strategy and tell their stories to a global audience.
As well as consistently achieving top-level media coverage and securing prestigious awards for her clients, Alice managed communication strategy in challenging situations such as mergers and acquisitions, providing media training and crisis comms support to top-level executives, and engaging with influencers and policy makers.
She passionately believes in the transformative power of technology, and in (at the risk of sounding like one of her favourite Silicon Valley characters) “Making the World a Better Place”.
This translates into advising companies of all sizes and working on a broad variety of projects across the entire tech spectrum, but her particular interests at the moment focus on Virtual Reality technology and the impact this will have in society.
Alice is a freelance journalist writing for publications such as Playboy, Newsweek, The Next Web, Times Higher Education and more. In addition to undertaking consultancy projects, speaking engagements and delivering media coaching, she is currently writing a book about how VR will change relationships in the new digital age and seeking a publisher for a volume on Education Technology which will help parents, educators and students navigate through the fundamental reshaping of the classroom which is taking place as a result of EdTech adoption. Some of the initial research output for these projects can be found on the blog.
With 4 nationalities (US, Brazil, UK and Italy) and a strong track record working across international markets, Alice has the multicultural perspective and flexible language skills to scale up ideas globally.
A self-confessed geek, Alice is very active on social media and always welcomes new connections, particularly on LinkedIn and Twitter, where she curates technology news alongside more self-indulgent pursuits such as LEGO addiction, Star Wars and adorable ginger dogs named after Sherlock Holmes characters.
