Alice Korngold is a terrific person – thoughtful, wise, connected, inclusive, and personable! An absolute gem. Alice has guest lectured to my Harvard governance students twice and they were thrilled. With ease, Alice adeptly tackled global problems students raised such as health, education, poverty, climate change, demographics and more, with hands on examples of what the best companies and boards in the world are doing, drawn from years of research and practice. It was a thrill to have Alice guest lecture and to know her. I highly recommend this authentic, talented and very nice person for any board work, advising, speaking or consulting. Highly recommend!

IMPACT 2030 was a very entrepreneurial venture from its launch in 2015 and as we built our foundation as a global entity we enlisted Alice to help formalize our board structure. Alice is an impressive and knowledgeable strategist and we’ve greatly appreciated her guidance and disciplined process as we work towards developing an extraordinary board that will help us optimize operational performance and achieve financial sustainability. She was able to walk us through a process that clarified where we wanted to go and to develop a board make-up that would help us get there. We have a tremendous foundation of private-sector partners around the world that are invested in the success of our mission and Alice’s work is already setting us on a longer and more impactful trajectory.
