Before you go, we want you to know that everyone above is an Alchemist. 
Yet, we have different roles to play on projects.





These folks are your day to day points of contact. They are responsible for project success and do the majority of the work. All of our Partners combine deep operational experience leading teams, divisions and companies with years of experience consulting for a range of companies, from start-ups to Fortune 100s.

Experts are our transdisciplinary leaders who excel in professions as varied as the military, healthcare, education, aeronautics, art, acting, music, science, firefighting, athletics, philanthropy, social activism, entrepreneurship and c-suite executives. The Experts usually have a day job, so they participate strategically in the RoundTables™ and SurgicalStrikes™.

Attached to every project that requires execution, Designers create materials and experiences that ensure people participate, learn and adopt. Our Designers encompass art, graphic, industrial, content, story, brand, communication, product, experience and set design.

If our client does not have a project manager, we have some amazing people to play this role and keep things on track.
