Imagine. Transform. Perform.

“I believe the future is about creating spaces of meaningful connections not by building walls, but by bridging affinities that cut across disciplines, professions, sectors, and cultures. For this to happen we need optimistic leaders, thinkers and doers who understand the urgency of our times, who think beyond the ‘here and the now’ and put their skills, passions, and talents to work in a collective effort to make a difference. This is the greatest transformation I embarked on, not only because I believe it is possible, but because I believe it is necessary!”

Paola Granati

what i bring to the table

Passion. Creativity. Determination.

With over 25 years of global corporate HR experience, a nomadic mindset and a life long journey in creative entrepreneurial projects, including music productions, I consider myself to be at the crossroads between an HR Executive, Artist, Founder, Career Coach, Trainer & Ideator.

We are more than our jobs and these multiple identities need to find a space for them to manifest. This is what PG Creative Businesses is about: a place where multiple spaces co-exist, where boundaries are bridges that one can cross if one wishes to but one doesn’t have to.

In my work-life journey which has led me to a dozen relocations across the world and major transformational projects either building and ramping up capabilities or re-allocating them and at times dismantling them,  change, transformation, & people have always been at the heart of my work. Understanding the actual dynamics that occur in ourselves, and in organizations when leading a critical People function like HR is priceless!

You will go through many iterations in your own work-life journey as your priorities change and life’s circumstances force you to change. Companies need to accommodate for greater flexibility when managing the workforce, their culture needs to embed an element of fluidity which is the exact opposite of what corporate cultures do. But this is the challenge ahead for professional, leaders and HR functions alike!  The World of Work is changing and we cannot afford to stand still.

Invest In Yourself.

This space is all about you! If you aspire to design your world of work on your own terms and harness the power of your multiple skills to achieve your goals, then investing in yourself, and embracing an entrepreneur mindset needs to be at the top of your priority list.

Learning how to develop  a strong portfolio of offerings, manage your brand and your finances, as well as managing change and transitions are just some of the skills needed to navigate through a complex and ever changing working environment.



Invest In Culture.

The uncertainties of the future require flexible workforce models and adaptable cultures that truly put learning & development as well internal and external mobility at center stage. The promise of “attracting, developing and retaining” talent is no longer credible nor sustainable.

New forms of contracting will be needed as talents will be moving in and out of your organization seeking new opportunities and you will be looking at new org structures and skills to adapt to the digital revolution.



Invest In Creativity.

Today’s challenges requires great minds to come together from different walks of life! Sharing experiences, exploring the issues from different perspectives and bringing our creative self to work, are some of the ways we can collectively  address topics that are relevant to our society and communities.

Developing our creative self and tapping into the creative arts with disciplines like music, art, and acting are some of the most powerful ways we have to expand our sense of consciousness and consecutiveness. This requires an inclusive, immersive and safe space that allows true magic to happen!



Paola Granati is the amazing professional that we all seek to be in our lives both personally and as we embark our career journeys. Her passions run deep in the belief in our society, our talents and that which drives us to be our best. Consequently, she serves as a great advisor to business leaders, coaching partner for strategic designs and… A consulting friend to be a thought partner on finding our purpose.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Paola for many years. Encountering her first in her role as an HR executive leader. I had the chance to watch her from afar and learned and grew from seeing her approach on how to lead indirectly and directly. From there, our friendship blossomed and we’ve become coaching partners for our mutual entrepreneur ventures.

It is this aspect of consideration of people and culture that we see in her creative side: in her music business, vocal talent and tenacious way of getting the right things done. It is this variety of person that makes any association with Paola the best you will ever have!

I’ve known and worked with Paola directly and indirectly for over 20 years and I am always amazed to see the energy and passion she puts behind everything she does and how contagious that is to all of those around her. Her optimism and unwavering belief that we can achieve anything we want to when we set our mind to it and when we work together to make it happen are boosters to give our best. If you are looking for an out of the box thinker, thought leader and change maker she’s the one to go to!

Paola is a superb people’s leader. She challenges you to think creatively on how to improve things, do more with less, improve efficiency, always with a Company hat on, but putting the person at the Center of everything. I felt that, the time I spent with her, I grew both professionally and personally. She stretched me to think in a more diverse way, to find solutions, not problems and, to be a better skilled person in life. Grazie mile Paola.
