I was impressed by … Continue reading Jamie Burton, Coach and Manager, Winchester City Women FC

The breakthrough day with Emma brought a much-needed focus and clarity back into my thinking and helped me find the courage to creating the life and work that makes me happy.
Emma used intuitive questions that required us to dissect our business/idea to its bare basics. It made a change from going round and round in circles between the two of us. The coaching sessions gave insight into our business plan and how we should take it one step at a time, rather than trying to perfect … Continue reading Dan Yates and Jack Thoo-Tinsley, Runforge
The coaching sessions with Emma were very useful for developing and nurturing our early business development ideas. We now have a much clearer idea of how we wish to build the company, refocusing on the areas we know best.
Emma was fantastic to work with and for – she leads from the front, is sensitive to the individual, and has an amazing knack for making connections between people and places.
I highly recommend Emma to anyone needing expertise in the areas of digital, games, immersive and innovation, or who needs a hand to set a new direction of travel, define new priorities or approach problems in a new way. Emma is top notch!

The most useful part of the coaching was the exploration of a simple idea and expanding the idea to find the true motivation of the goal and then exploring all the aspects of the goal to determine what I wanted to achieve. As a result of Emma’s coaching I feel generally more confident around other people, … Continue reading Louise Usher
I found the structured, non-directive approach of the sessions surprisingly helpful as it encouraged me to analyse my actions in more detail without being pressed for categorising conclusion. Having a coaching session with Emma helped me to address work related issues during a dedicated session instead of ruminating unsolved work problems after hours.
Thanks Emma’s coaching I realised that some of the goals I initially had were not as important as others which gave me the clarity to change my focus. Her coaching provided me with focus where I did not think I needed it and to concentrate less on some issues I was focusing on too much.
I learned lots about myself, the way the company works and the way others work within the company. I also learnt more about how to adapt and influence all three of those things.
Emma helped me to successfully complete my project and, in the process, raise my visibility within the company. Emma’s coaching also helped me to consider my longer term goals and aspirations.
Emma’s coaching sessions were an important step in getting the management to agree on the core values of the business and also on the importance of presenting them and living by them. The session also brought home the need to do further work in the management training of the team.
