Having evolved into a professional services agency out of a capacity building social venture with the sparkle and flame of social activity and with significant knowledge gained on the field, we are passionate to design and offer sophisticated L&D programs, which integrate scientific results of cognitive science and HR development and elaborate methodological tools based primarily on design thinking.
A catalyst in growth chemistry
Our vision is that our programs become catalysts for the participants growth, contributing critical elements to their growth chemistry, either by strengthening their skills, by adjusting their mindset to the requirements of their objectives or by opening up new perspectives for them!
Our L&D Programs are designed by our Management & Strategy Team and our program-specific L&D Project Managers.
Our L&D programs are run by our L&D instructors under the coordination and organizational support of our L&D Project Managers.
Each L&D Instuctor may offer (a) workshops and/or (b) advisory support or mentoring and/or (c) guidance in guided projects. He/she offers L&D services in our programs according on his/her professional background and areas of interest
We have set up a pool of L&D instructors, who are professionals of various professional fields, with corporate, freelance or entrepreneurial careers who share a passion for L&D, who have been members of AELIA pool of mentors/trainers when AELIA was a social venture and who have had an intensive onboarding by AELIA in order to adopt and integrate our quality assurance principles in our L&D services. .
Our Management & Strategy team consists of:
(a) our Executive Director (currently our co-founder Faye), who is also our Chief Strategy Officer & Chief Learning Officer
(b) our 7-member Strategy Board, chaired by our co-founder Sofia, as Chairman of the Board who is also our Chief HR Officer.
All Members of our Strategy Board are also L&D Instructors.
Our L&D Project Managers have also a critical managerial role in our specific programs.
They have all been either alumni of our former capacity building programs as social venture or participants in our open activities as social ventures. Thus, they have built a strong relationshp with AELIA throughout the years, sharing the vision of AELIA and its values and having contributed to defining our principles of action.

From 2013 to present
We started on the field in 2013 supporting diverse individuals, in diverse business fields, within diverse professional environments. We started as a capacity building social venture.
It was on the field where we explored the challenges of professional development and where we discovered the spectrum of diverse cognitive requirements of the world of work and of entrepreneurship. Since 2013 we have run workshops, mentored people, set-up communities for mutual development support. We also studied, consulted experts and created our own L&D models which we tested out on the field.
Thus, gradually and naturally, we evolved into a learning & development agency for organizations with the required knowledge, with a tested-out innovation capacity as well as with a valuable maturity which enable us to tackle key L&D challenges for employers, freelance professionals, and entrepreneurs.
In parallel, we continue our capacity building activity for good through our AELIA-4-Good activity
