We can start with an informal chat. You can tell me your goals, challenges and what services you think you need.

Let’s get started with a conversation and we can take it from there.

“Given Emma’s experience and knowledge in higher education, she was perfectly positioned to work across the institution. She effectively collaborated with our various internal stakeholders to ensure the event was positioned correctly, by maximising the benefits to our graduates and the University. Emma brought fresh ideas and new ways of working, and we wouldn’t have thought of on our own.”

Holly Peterson

Head of Constituency Engagement

“Emma is an outstanding events professional. She is creative, strategic, entrepreneurial, highly efficient and extraordinarily well organised. She has high emotional intelligence and managed volunteers with great attention to detail, so I recommend her unreservedly.”

Tricia King

Founder & Director

“Emma is great at multitasking, responsible and responsive. We worked on a high-level project for more than a year, but somehow managed to pull it together across different time zones and multiple messaging platforms. She is brilliant!”
