The two days spent in the training you delivered  were really instructive and enlightening, once again, thank you!


Emma's presentation style was fantastic, it was great to have a relaxed and informed style. Emma was incredibly knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed the two days.



Emma also manages the team’s conferences, webinars and HR workshops programme. Recent training projects have included delivering a performance management and essential manager course to managers within a global IT company as part of their Manager Enabling Programme, preparing GDPR compliance training and webinars for an international restaurant chain and running a 2 day HR Masterclass for those new to HR.  

Since qualifying in 2001 Emma has worked exclusively in employment law. She advises clients on day to day HR and employment law issues and spreads the message of employment law through client briefings, training, conferences and webinars. She also has a focus on knowledge management as well as drafting employment contracts and policies. 

Emma is well known for providing clients with clear, plain-speaking, practical advice. As a trainer, she is engaging and focuses on providing delegates with key facts and practical solutions which can be implemented in their own organisations and teams.
