FOUNDER & CEO OF THE VIRTUAL EVENT BOSS ACADEMY
Hi, I’m Alecia, Founder and CEO of The Virtual Event Boss Agency, Alecia May Consulting and Eventistry by Alecia.
I’m a Certified Event Strategist and Coach with 16 years of experience in the event planning industry. As a lead expert in the field of virtual and hybrid event strategy and sponsorship, my mission is to educate entrepreneurs and event planners through disruptive education, online programs, and coaching.
You can get to know me better through my 6 Figure Event Podcast, where I talk all about industry news, tips and tricks, and the behind the scenes secrets to holding a wildly successful event. Thanks to my amazing community, we’re currently rated 5 stars!
During the course of my exciting event career, I’ve produced more than 700 events worldwide. One hundred of those were virtual events, which puts me in a prime position to help people tackle the changing face of event planning today.
I’ve enjoyed every moment of coaching hundreds of entrepreneurs to successfully launch and run six-figure events and businesses.
I’ve always been a creative entrepreneur at heart. I started my first business at 7 years old, selling handcrafted jewelry pieces I created myself. I haven’t looked back since.
I was also an early adopter of online technology as a way to bring people together. Way back in the early days of the internet in 2001, I created an online community for women that transcended the basic chatrooms available at the time. It was called the Martini Lounge, and it’s success earned me a nomination for a prestigious Women of Distinction Award.
My children and family are the most important thing in my life because I love being a mom! My kids motivate me to achieve success while setting an ethical example for them at the same time. I’m proud to show them how to run a business with respect, high communication, and by total commitment.
I started the Virtual Event Boss Agency to host virtual and hybrid events for companies that felt that they couldn’t do it alone.
To date, Alecia has helped procure over $7.5 million in event sponsorship, supporting entrepreneurs and small business owners in landing deals from companies like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, LinkedIn, IBM, Expedia, Capital One, and more!
She is a Women of Distinction Award nominee, Haldimand Business Excellence Award nominee, and Co-Author of the book Empire Moms.
