Your challenges need a solution that is tailored to your situation, your organisation and your people. People Alchemy’s one-to-one consultancy is led by our founder and CEO, Paul Matthews. His vision is to enable capability in the workplace. And our whole team is committed to ensuring your people can do the job that is in front of them, when they need to do it.

We achieve this through innovative tools and technology but also our tailored, one-to-one consultancy. After more than 16 years of working closely with L&D teams across different sectors and different types of organisation, we bring a wealth of experience and an unbiased approach to analysing and helping to overcome your challenges.

Paul is extremely hands-on and loves nothing more than rolling his sleeves up and working closely with clients to improve performance. Whatever your L&D challenge, Paul’s approach can unlock the potential of your people and ensure L&D are recognised as heroes.


“Paul manages to distil clarity, common sense and a way forward from the often over-crowded debate on the future direction of workplace learning.”

Derek Brimley, Learning Manager
