Meet Nina Grunfeld, our Founder and CEO

Nina Grunfeld, Life Clubs

Most of my life I felt under-confident, not good enough, an outsider.

Through exploring personal development my self-esteem grew, and I saw how I could help others by creating holistic workshops based around coaching and mentoring within a group environment.

In the past fifteen years, alongside running LifeClubs I’ve written four self-development books and had columns in The Daily Telegraph, HR and Psychologies Magazines.

Together with my wonderful team, we run our unique workshops all round the world, including our local clubs which are now online and available through our shop.

Nina Grunfeld

"Nina is rather special... a gentle, intuitive presence... who uses humour and self-recognition to confront big topics"
— Evening Standard

Watch Nina at The Good Life Experience
talking about leading a good life.
