Emma founded Gallery in April 2006, with a strong desire to do something to unite creativity and business in a way that would empower creatives and creative businesses to build their confidence, know their value and grow. Since then she has worked with hundreds of design agencies doing exactly that.
Emma is an expressive, creative thinker with a strong background in leadership, management and marketing. Before establishing Gallery, Emma was Managing Director of the award-winning design consultancy Home. Emma has 25 years experience of being part of and managing teams.
An experienced creative business consultant, coach, trainer and facilitator, Emma works intimately with agencies, challenging thinking and re-igniting energy and vision. Her goal is always to transform the organisations and individuals she works with, empowering and energising – providing clarity, direction and meaning.
Emma is a passionate advocate in the design industry and has consistently taken on roles over the past decade aimed at strengthening the voice and understanding of the industry. She was previously Chair of the West of England Design Forum and on the board of Design South West and an Associate at The Design Council, delivering workshops throughout the UK on the power of design as a strategic driver for business growth.
