People stuff and bits and bobs

Baby moi
Welcome to my new website which includes my blog pages too.

I am a Management Consultant - The People Alchemist - and my focus is in Change, Transformation, Programme & Project Management and HR Consultancy.


I am also a Business and Lifestyle Blogger  - The Alchemist About Town - and I am very happy that I have the opportunity to write a blog and provide snippets of advice & insight in matters of employment, recruitment, development and career coaching for entrepreneurs, business owners, SMEs, new managers and employees alike.

Please do bear in mind that a little knowledge can be very dangerous so please do seek advice before putting anything into practice.

You might ask: " Why does a Management consultant write about lifestyle, business perhaps but lifestyle???"

 " (Personal) Style melds into your lifestyle, finances, and identity into an overall  statement that makes you feel good about yourself and tells the world how to feel about you.....Getting (this part) out of the way allows you to get down to business and the true priorities of your life " (Suzy Gershman - Best Dressed)

This is who I am, cosmopolitan, multilingual, a food lover, ballet fanatic, avid reader, passionate about music, theatre, tennis, rugby, visiting new places, and of course I love fashion ( well I am a girl). I am a rounded individual with a multi-dimensional prospective that can benefit my clients.

Plus one has to have fun; no play would make The Alchemist ( moi) a very dull girl.

I hope you will follow me in my  posts, in my escapades around London and beyond and in some other bits and bobs.

Please don't be shy: share, like and tweet :-)

Thank you

I am so utterly delighted that my book is now out, available to order both on paperback and on Kindle edition just in time for Business Women's Day - YES!!!!!! :-) 

STOP IT! It's all in your head   is my labour of love and my way to encourage, inspire and empower women to achieve what they want professionally and not be confined by societal, religious, family paradigms of what " women should do/are like" and, most importantly, the restrictions in their head.
If that is being CEO of a Global Company or a stay-at-mum or Director of Paperclip ( whatever grabs your fancy) so be it.

Writing this book was also a personal challenge ( the 30 days thingy) which confirmed to me once and for all that you can really do whatever you set your mind to, if you really want to that is.

Couple of tips for writing a book from me:
  • write about what you are passionate about, you know more than you think.
  • free-write about the parts/chapters in the book you like the most and you are most interested in first - that will give you a great boost at the beginning - you can edit and add the boring bits later - by then most of the book will be almost there
  • keep your own voice - write as you speak so to speak ( people do need to understand you though..)
  • keep an open mind, ideas will flow into you mid-way through the project
  • a deadline and going public is good to beat procrastination ( but if that stresses you out too much don't do it) - the deadline certainly helped me.
You can do it too!!!

The time is getting closer and closer to the release of   STOP IT, It's all in your head   my new book ( 22 September for Business Women's Day - US) .

I have now  received the proof copy of the paperback which looks absolutely fabulous: a couple of things to correct but overall I am super happy with the result.
A lot of marketing to do now between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+ ( which is PS: looking like more work than the actual writing of the book).

The book event/launch/talk is live on Eventbrite and you can buy an Early Bird ticket now:
