General Assembly Meeting #65 | November 14, 2022
On Monday, November 14 at General Assembly Meeting #65 we heard from guest speakers:
- Laura Aboli (🇬🇧) | Changing the World One Person at a Time
Laura’s entrepreneurial career started in the year 2000 when she co-founded World-Check, a database of Politically Exposed Persons and heightened risk individuals and organisations, which soon became the de facto standard for identifying and managing financial, regulatory and reputational risk within the world’s financial and legal institutions. Following World-Check’s success, she co-founded Wealth-X in 2010, which went on to become the leading provider of intelligence on ultra-high-net-worth individuals.
Having exited both companies by 2014, she continued her life-long passion for interior design, by establishing a property development and design company which she continues to run. Having been born into an artistic family, Laura has a passion for art, sculpture, music and dance and her critical and inquisitive mind has led her into the realms of metaphysics, spirituality, health and psychology. Her experience and her dedication to helping others have led her to step onto the public arena in order to share what she considers to have been important life lessons in her own journey.
In May of 2020, prompted by the way events surrounding the global pandemic were affecting people’s livelihoods, civil rights and mental health, Laura founded the United Democratic International Movement for Awareness and Freedom, an organisation dedicated to creating a better world through awareness, inspiration and the relentless pursuit of truth.

Growing up in rural Bavaria, her passion for music and dance led Bruni to study eurythmy (creative movement) in Nuremberg. Later in life, a dream initiated her exploration of bodywork, yoga and Ayurveda.
The hands-on experience of touch therapies gave Bruni insight into the flow of energy within the physical body. She wants to assist people to enliven the body and clalm the mind, feel more, love more, give more, to open the heart and find peace and connection.
