60 SECONDS WITH EMMA

Describe yourself in 3 words Focussed, Enthusiastic & Charming.

Who inspires you? I like the go-getters, the doers, the ones who really make it happen. I’m fortunate to work with many successful businessmen/women that hugely inspire and motivate me. Talent comes in many forms and abilities.
