About Us

My Name is Lisa Esposito-Maffei and I live in Hadfield, Glossop. I am married to Phil and we have two beautiful children, Ava (8) and Luca (4) and our 2 year Cavapoo, Max completes the family.
I was born and bred in a small village near Penrith, Cumbria. After attending The University of Leeds where I studied Food Science, I met Phil whilst working together near Manchester. The city wasn’t for me and we bought our first home together in Derbyshire. We are now living happily in our forever home in Hadfield near Glossop and I love where we live.

I enjoy running when I can, you might see me pounding the pavements of Glossop or running along the Longdendale and around the reservoirs. Last year I completed 3 Marathons – Manchester, Ladybower and  York and this year I have entered the Conti Thunder Run, where you basically run as many 6 mile laps as you can in 24 hours.

The name ALM was derived from the names of my children and our little dog – Ava Luca Max. I have taken the huge step to set up ALM Consultancy as I want to be able to have more flexibility around my family and have a better work/life balance.

I have just completed my CIPD Level 7 advanced Postgraduate Diploma in HR management and felt that now was as good a time as any to take that step. I have spent my HR career working in various roles as Company Trainer, HR Advisor, Group Training Manager, and HR Manager predominantly working in Manufacturing both Food and Heavy Engineering.

I want to work with local business owners, really getting to know your business so I can offer you the best solutions and advice, tailored to your business and your employees. I will be the inhouse HR department you don’t have. I will ensure that you have the right tools in place to get the most out of your staff, staying legally compliant the whole way. I strongly believe that if you have the correct procedures and policies in place which are easily understood and practical, along with training, trust and good communication your staff will feel empowered and help you and your business achieve its goals.
