Business & Lifestyle Edit / Experimentation for #TheWomanAlchemist #SmashYourCeiling
Hello, I am Laura Mariani, Founder of The People Alchemist Ltd.
My motto is “Ignite your People, Transform your Company”.
I firmly believe the success of companies depends upon harnessing the potential and talent of people. Empowering and strengthening businesses through a healthy work and personal life. The power of people, places, and things to do.
I help businesses discover, develop and align people, strategy, plan, and processes and integrate them into a long term business plan to make the best use of resources. And maximise effectiveness and efficiency and achieve sustainability and growth. I love empowering businesses and people to unleash their potential
#SmashYourCeiling to #SmashTheCeiling
This blog is an extension of the People Alchemist. It covers and reviews both business topics like advice & insight in matters of employment, the latest employment law cases to be aware of, new legislation and implications for employers, book reviews and career coaching together with lifestyle, food, travel, and culture. And it showcases the very best of British and beyond. It is not about work-life balance because this concept assumes work is not part of life. I love what I do, and I want to have an enjoyable time doing it and having other things going on.
The blog is also an extension of my life edit/experimentation.
FROM MY LIFE TO YOURS
I am feminist in that I believe women can be and do anything they choose to if they want to, that is. And I believe in women supporting other women to succeed. Let’s have a women’s club instead of the old boys’ one.
I am a food lover, ballet fanatic, avid reader, passionate about music, art, theatre. In addition, I like painting and drawing (for self-expression, not selling but hey, you never know…), tennis, rugby, visiting new places. And of course, I love fashion (well, I am a girl).
I have divided my time between consulting/project management and interim work with writing a book and blogging for the past few years. However, I also ‘long to live big, be outrageous, to unleash my inner Isadora Duncan’ (as Pam Grout says in) and so I am doing just that and follow Grout’s “yearlong apprenticeship to summon my muses and reclaim my bold, audacious, creative side”.
A career is like investing, you need a portfolio, or I do.
I hope this blog gives you some inspiration either at work or in your life – #SmashYourCeiling.
From my life to yours
