Who are we?

Igniting leaders to transform the world for the better

Our name, Alyceum is derived from the latin word, lyceum, which is a place of learning.  It was a place to improve yourself and your community. Lyceums were a place for philosophical debate, dramatic performances and sharing of ideas. The most famous philosophers in history taught at Lyceums including Aristotle, Plato and Socrates.

In today’s world, there is a growing need for leaders to come together and explore new ways of leading in business and the community. Alyceum is growing a community of leaders who are making the world a better place.
