“I came across Emma at a leadership event. We bonded well and I sought business support to have Emma as my business coach to support me with my journey. In a very short space of time we have significantly moved the dial in my confidence and ability as well as showing vulnerability. Our journey is not yet over and I am SUPER excited to what the next few months will bring.”

“When I left university, the careers office said they didn’t know what to do with me but that I would find my own way in life. They were right.”
