Imagine. Transform. Perform.

“I believe the future is about creating spaces of meaningful connections not by building walls, but by bridging affinities that cut across disciplines, professions, sectors, and cultures. For this to happen we need optimistic leaders, thinkers and doers who understand the urgency of our times, who think beyond the ‘here and the now’ and put their skills, passions, and talents to work in a collective effort to make a difference. This is the greatest transformation I embarked on, not only because I believe it is possible, but because I believe it is necessary!”

Paola Granati

Corporate
space

Invest In People.

If you can imagine a world where talent is no longer the ownership of any one given organization, where open source cultures are the new normal and where leaders hire entrepreneurial talent because of their unique set of capabilities, experiences and career paths, then you know that continuing to invest in people, in their employability and in their skills needs to be part of your overall people and culture strategy.

Designing organizational cultures and processes that can attract and develop the fluid workforces of tomorrow needs to start today because this requires a radical change in organisational strategy, mindset and offerings.  This is what this space wants to propose!

Creative
space

Invest In Creativity.

If you can imagine a world where great minds come together from different businesses, professions, backgrounds to share ideas, experiences, knowledge and address topics that are relevant to our society and communities, then dedicating a space for creative encounters, events and forums is one of the ways of making it happen.

Bringing people together playfully and creatively is one of the best ways to expand our own creativity and come up with new innovative ideas that would otherwise not  emerge without an inclusive safe space that allows true magic to happen!

Testimonials

Paola Granati is the amazing professional that we all seek to be in our lives both personally and as we embark our career journeys. Her passions run deep in the belief in our society, our talents and that which drives us to be our best. Consequently, she serves as a great advisor to business leaders, coaching partner for strategic designs and… A consulting friend to be a thought partner on finding our purpose.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Paola for many years. Encountering her first in her role as an HR executive leader. I had the chance to watch her from afar and learned and grew from seeing her approach on how to lead indirectly and directly. From there, our friendship blossomed and we’ve become coaching partners for our mutual entrepreneur ventures.

It is this aspect of consideration of people and culture that we see in her creative side: in her music business, vocal talent and tenacious way of getting the right things done. It is this variety of person that makes any association with Paola the best you will ever have!

I’ve known and worked with Paola directly and indirectly for over 20 years and I am always amazed to see the energy and passion she puts behind everything she does and how contagious that is to all of those around her. Her optimism and unwavering belief that we can achieve anything we want to when we set our mind to it and when we work together to make it happen are boosters to give our best. If you are looking for an out of the box thinker, thought leader and change maker she’s the one to go to!

Sandra SilvaArea Leader People at Sonae MC – Porto, Portugal

Paola is a superb people’s leader. She challenges you to think creatively on how to improve things, do more with less, improve efficiency, always with a Company hat on, but putting the person at the Center of everything. I felt that, the time I spent with her, I grew both professionally and personally. She stretched me to think in a more diverse way, to find solutions, not problems and, to be a better skilled person in life. Grazie mile Paola.

Miguel Del Coso SanchezLead HRBP, International Commercial at BVI Medical, London, UK

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Paola on numerous occasions. What I appreciate most about her is her strategic thinking, willingness to be a thought partner, ability to work through challenges with you and/or the team, creative approach, and broad array of people insights. On top of that, she is a fun person that makes work enjoyable.
