Our Story


In one minute. 

“I left corporate life to raise my children and nurture my passion for jazz.  I felt I was many things and I was in transition - I needed an environment where I could bring the whole of me, all the dimensions of my life, personal, professional and my interests.

That space did not exist. So one day in 2012, I sent an email to a few friends.

A couple of weeks later, 98 women turned up for coffee at my house. They were asked to ‘remove their status labels' and pick a sticker Dot which represented their mindset that morning. 

5 Dots, 5 mindsets and guidance to begin the conversation with ‘What is your story?’ and not ‘What do you do’ opened up a world of possibilities.

A new way of connecting was born. Something we now call Alchemy.”
