KOMO’s Award-winning Founder
Alicia Paul Beverley is a registered trade marks attorney, an IP strategist, educator, entrepreneur and presenter, and has also written extensively about intellectual property for over 20 years. She has held her own IP rights – patents, registered designs, trade marks, and copyright. She is a proud member of INTA, the International Trade Mark Association.
Alicia began writing for IP Australia (then the Australian Industrial Property Organisation) in 1993 when the federal agency began focusing on the needs of small to medium businesses, which had been largely overlooked. For the next few years, Alicia wrote numerous materials on behalf of AIPO, including information packs, case studies, newspaper and magazine articles, handy tools and the like.
In 1996, she began offering IP auditing and general IP strategy consultancy services. In 1997, Alicia began speaking for The Executive Connection (TEC), the global CEO and executive network, which brought her into contact with hundreds of successful and influential Australian and New Zealand business leaders. This led to the co-founding of a boutique intellectual property firm in Queensland in 2004, which swiftly became a success. Through this business, Alicia mentored several young IP professionals, who have gone on to stellar careers in the industry, something she is very proud of.
In May, 2007 Alicia received TEC’s prestigious ‘Most Valuable Speaker’, Mick Robertson Award. And in that same year, her business was listed in BRW Magazine’s Fast 100 list – the only intellectual property firm ever to be included. In March of 2008, Alicia was awarded International Women’s Day ‘Most Inspiring Leader’.
After 20 years as TEC’s primary IP resource speaker, Alicia has now presented to nearly 2,000 Australian and New Zealand business leaders, and also provided bespoke and in-house training to numerous managers, executives, and specialists teams.
In KOMO®, Alicia’s dream of providing affordable but powerful intellectual property strategy assistance, plus making IP training easily available to all business people at any level and in any industry, has finally been realised.
