Alexis Niki is a Paris-based storyteller and a Narrative Leadership Coach (WPCC, ACC). With a background in screenwriting, Alexis worked as a story consultant in independent film production before bringing her story skills to the nonprofit and business worlds. Through her consultancy StoryNova, Alexis helps leaders define their most powerful stories and activate futures of hope over fear.
In addition to her client work, Alexis continues to explore new frontiers in the application of storytelling, designing programs in leadership, cultural transformation, strategic storytelling, and future visioning with collaborators in Japan and Los Angeles, and developing her own online courses.
A New Yorker by birth, Alexis has lived more than half her life in multiple European countries. Each encounter with a new culture challenged her sense of belonging and encouraged her to script her own path. Similarly, Alexis teaches her filmmaking and MA/MFA students to take charge of their own stories as they navigate the world in this era of transformation.
