About me
Alexandra is the Founder of Urban Yoga Lab, a wellbeing keynote speaker, and a corporate wellbeing consultant. She specialises in designing and delivering B2B wellness solutions such as bespoke corporate wellness programmes as well as B2C solutions including detox retreats for HNWIs and UHNWIs and special wellbeing events for VIPs. Previously, she used to be a PR Executive for Tier 1 PR agencies like Edelman serving brands like HSBC, Lagardère, Amazon, and BP. Her experience in the fast-paced corporate world enables her to successfully respond to some of the greatest challenges and needs of hybrid modern employees. She has worked for 50+ brands in different sectors including finance (i.e. Royal Bank of Canada, BDO, Wells Fargo, BluBay Asset Management), law (Kennedys Law, Taylor Wessing, Simmons & Simmons) and hospitality (Conrad Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott). One of her greatest passions is delivering wellbeing talks to big summits - in 2021 alone she served more than 7 big conferences including CodeSync, the Human Resource Summit, and the She Leads Summit. Alexandra is on a 3 years' mission to help 5,000 HRs to create a positive resilient workplace, deliver their KPIs and achieve greater results of productivity. She loves meeting new people, sailing around the world (has been in more than 43 countries since 2013) - and when she's not meditating, it's about unwinding with a huge cup of late and a book from Wayne Dyer! www.urbanyogalab.com ak@urbanyogalab.com 01525647946
