An Entrepreneur, Performer, Clown, MC, best selling author and a two times TedX speaker, she works with a roster of CEOs of SMEs and global businesses using personal and business improvement techniques, including those mastered from the art of Clowning and Improvisation.

Individual-Speakers-Quote

We had the pleasure of having Em during our Off Site end of year Team event in December 2022. Em managed to keep us energizes, on our toes and engaged through the full day. Starting with a key note she passed powerful messages to my teams with wit and spice - having a long lasting effect on how we start our meets (smiling) how we pause and reflect in the heat of the moment (breath).and how we now interact with each other - richer by one fantastic memory of all of us laughing in the snow. Thank you Em, you are wonderful!"
