Sheril M.

Executive Coach

"I’ve read multiple books on strategy and also taken courses. They’re often too focused on theory and less so on implementation and mechanics. STA bridges that gap really well and covers ground thoroughly on both aspects - depth of frameworks combined with nuts & bolts of application.

Alex also shows you how to integrate it into your daily routine, making strategy a key part of how you think.

It’s a one of a kind opportunity to learn from a pro who’s practiced strategic thinking for decades. I got a lot out of it and I’m sure you’ll do as well. Highly recommended!"

Don S.

Board Director

"Alex Nesbitt’s course provides a practical education on strategic thinking that is well-founded on his rich expertise and deep research.

The course has the added value of a behind-the-scenes module presenting Alex's strategic thinking used to formulate the course itself.

In the end, one arrives more knowledgeable about strategic thinking and how to do it, as well as being more strategic for oneself and others."

Kobe L.

Consultant & Entreprenuer

"Strategy Academy is nothing short of an educational goldmine, and I feel significantly more well-equipped to use strategic thinking as a day-to-day skill and reflex.

Alex shares a wealth of knowledge in a format that is easily digestible and entertaining, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to up-level their strategic foundation."


Ore A.

Strategy Intern

"The course is one of the best I have taken in recent times.

It did not just reconfirm how I view strategy, the course shed more light on how to be more strategic daily.

I will recommend it to another who believes in the power of strategy to improve the odds of getting more out of a situation."

"One of the smartest people I know.  Alex is excellent at advising companies on developing strategy and implementing it to achieve their goals by setting up governance and accountability along the way; ensuring team / organizational alignment."
