I am Emma and I’m on a mission to help change the lives of entrepreneurial women in the UK and beyond.
I am a leading Business Consultant, multi-award winning CIM Qualified Marketer, NED and an expert on the entrepreneurial gender gap.
I started my corporate career working for Pharmaceutical companies launching and managing multi-million-pound brands while travelling the world. I worked my way up despite the misogyny and barriers that (let’s face it) many women face in the corporate world.
But in 2017 I gave it all up after sitting alone in a New Orleans hotel face-timing with my then seven-year-old daughter. I remember thinking, “I don’t want to miss any more of her life. I don’t want to do this anymore.”
So I left.
I started self-employed life as a Marketing Consultant and within 2.5 years I had grown my one woman band into a 7 figure, 15 people agency.
I owe my success to the incredible women I brought into the business who like me didn’t have a home in the bigger agencies and corporate world after having a family.
Within a very short period of time, my business had hit revenue of over £1million without investment, a coach or business background.
But it was a bumpy ride. I had no freedom from my business, and it was all-consuming! That freedom I left my job for – well it was non-existent and all the responsibility was on me.
I understand the pressure of being a mother and a business owner and my mission is to make it possible to do both in harmony.
That is why I have fused the We mean Business campaign with my business skills academy to ensure that every woman has access to the skills and knowledge it takes to succeed. Whilst in the background I am working with government to create the changes needed to remove some of those barriers that stand in our way.
Too often, entrepreneurial women are left out of the gender pay gap discussion. There are now about 2 million self-employed women in the UK, and 1 in 8 are mothers.
The UK economy is losing £250 billion pounds a year in revenue because business-owning women are not starting or growing a business to their fullest potental!
Without support and education, these women create a future of potential poverty because they’re not creating enough profit to save for their financial futures.

My Core Values
Do the right thing, not the popular thing.
We are not sheep! I don’t go with trends, I focus on personalised growth, and I stir things up if needs be for the greater good of women.
Excellence beats perfection.
I believe a high level of progress is better than perfection because perfection never gets done.
Show up with a can-do attitude.
If you believe it, it can be done. Let’s say “how?” not “no”.
Create more wealthy, happy, limitless women.
More women need a helping hand to achieve their greatness. The sum of the parts is greater than the individual. I believe more women need a community around them to help them grow.
Deliver on our promises.
I am fanatical about serving my clients to the highest standards.
