Corporate Director London
Getting to know Lara, her background, her business now, how she got to know and became involved with Global Woman, and then the Corporate Director for London. Why she loves Global Woman and her own vision and personal perspective for growing Global Woman Club Corporate in London and connecting globally.
My name is Lara Khalaf, and I am an Elite Leadership Coach and Trainer. This means that I help women entrepreneurs become extraordinary business leaders by looking at the way they lead themselves, their teams and their business. I believe leadership is responsibility and the good news is that it’s a learnable skill. I am an international speaker and entrepreneur and recently spoke at the prestigious TEDx platform.
I was born in Aleppo, Syria, to a Middle Eastern father and a Spanish mother, I lived in Syria up to the age of 14 until my parents decided to move to Madrid. Around thirteen years ago I moved to the UK and I currently reside in London. I came here to learn the language and live a life adventure, and love, in it’s different shapes and forms, made me stay in a country that provided me with my biggest business and personal breakthroughs.
Connecting with Global Woman
The way I met Mirela was quite funny. I joined the Migrant Woman conference in May 2016 as an attendee, where I collected an award on behalf of my friend and another prize on behalf of another attendee… I called myself the “fake winner”! That’s how my relationship with Mirela started. I then saw her speaking at different events and got inspired by the fact she didn’t allow circumstances to dictate how to live her life and instead she designed it and took total control.
Appearing on the cover of Global Woman magazine was one of the first steps that allowed me to share my story to a wider audience beyond my corporate clients and students… and it also fulfilled a dream of being a magazine cover girl.
There are many reasons as to why I wanted to become a Global Woman Club Director. The biggest reason is that Global Woman is like a family where strong bonds and relationships are formed, where the true meaning of sisterhood comes to life, where ladies are genuinely supporting each other from a deep and meaningful place.
Having worked in the corporate world for more than 10 years, it will be my pleasure to look after the Corporate Club in London, that will invite ladies from this sector to experience and be part of this very unique environment that is very rare to find in the corporate world.
Empowerment through Global Woman
My mission is to educate, empower and support women to become extraordinary and conscious business leaders. Global Woman’s core values are about supporting women to take control of their lives without excuses, we both believe that leadership will always start with us.
Being part of Global Woman events has allowed me to speak on international stages and as such reach wider audiences with my message. And it also helped me improve my public speaking skills! And this is a very important skill to master specially when having a big life purpose! Being part of Global Woman has also allowed me to feature in two books this year! How many people can say that?
The experience of being a Phenomenal Global Woman was a dream I didn’t realise I had! Although I could not join the team in Los Angeles for practicality reasons, the impact of being part of such a big project helped my personal growth and cemented my vision to only wanting to support women.
With so many women not having control over their destinies, my life is a gift, what I do with this gift is what truly matters… and I feel that being part of the show will help me help other women realise what’s possible when we decide to take control of our lives.
My vision for the future
Pablo Coelho said once that when the student is ready the master will appear I would like to add to that; Sometimes the student doesn’t know what’s “out there” for them to aspire to. I feel that Global Woman helps those students of life to show new roads of possibilities and make them realise what they didn’t know was that it was even possible. Yes, we aspire to create a new paradigm, but we can’t do it on our own.
We need women with a strong sense of purpose, women who believe they are more than “now” and together we will create a shift that is very much needed in the world right now.
