  • CIPD





Emma is an award-winning published author and one of the UK’s leading employee engagement specialists. She has over 18 years of experience gained in a variety of roles in diverse organisations, from Utilities and Financial Services through to the public sector.

Emma came to this field via a more unconventional route – previously lecturing on graduate and post-graduate courses in psychology – her specialist area being behaviour change. Combining this understanding of psychology with practical business experience and an MBA, Emma has demonstrated how organisations can achieve their goals and create a competitive advantage by focusing on their people.

Working at all levels within an organisation – with the Board through to front line employees – her specific areas of expertise include culture change and major change programmes, employee and brand engagement, leadership development and the application of new media and digital technology within organisations.

Emma has designed and developed the CIPD’s range of public employee engagement courses as well as contributing to, and being published within, the UK Government Review – Engage for Success. She now advises the Government taskforce on engagement as part of the ‘guru steering group’.

Emma is a qualified, practicing coach and a member of the Institute of Public Relations.
