Here at ALME we're all about helping people find and develop their purpose as they survive and thrive in the work life collision that the past year has thrown up.

We believe in a life more extraordinary and that 2020 highlighted just how important it is to be part of a community of like minded people who want to support, challenge and inspire each other. 

If you want to see this in action then please check out our most recent live panel shows and podcasts where we explore a range of different topics to help you define and create your own extraordinary new life, supported by the experience and wisdom of inspiring guests.

Love and Loss

Despite unprecedented restrictions, the threat of an unknown pandemic and being shackled to the sofa, nothing could quarantine the beautiful and terrible realities of love and death.


Please join us to hear our panel's powerful tales of love and loss in a time of lockdown, and celebrate the inspiration that these provide as we look to make 2022 more extraordinary.

Look forward to seeing you there
