Now more than ever, design leaders are needed to change the shape of our world for the better. So many designers find themselves in positions of leadership with little or no training and so learn ‘on the job’, juggling deadlines, people, budgets and client demands with little time to reflect. Emma will facilitate the opportunity to do just that; space to think about you and your role as leader. Conscious leadership combines an awareness of self with an alignment of purpose and values, delivering shifts in behaviour which can positively affect your people, culture and business success.
This tailored programme is designed to enable business owners, senior executives and leaders of design and creative agencies to take time out in a safe, confidential, challenging and supportive space to reflect on and develop key leadership skills that will help them develop and strengthen an effective and creative culture for business growth.
The programme will take place over three workshops during May and June 2018. The cohort will be limited to a maximum of 12, ensuring there is time for quality conversations and an opportunity to develop a new network of peers for ongoing support and shared learning.
1:1 coaching sessions can be added for an additional fee as part of this programme.
Closing Date for Applications – Thursday April 12th, 2018
A preparatory session (via Skype) in advance of the workshops to enable you to meet Emma and ask any questions and to enable Emma to understand your own unique leadership challenges and goals.

In 2006, Emma made the conscious decision to leave her role as MD at the award-winning Bristol design agency Home. Aware of a lack of confidence in some Designers and a limited understanding of the value of design with many clients, Emma felt moved to direct her energy and focus to help creative Leaders know themselves, their true value and potential.
Since then, Emma has dedicated the past decade to help creative Leaders become more conscious in their roles, confident in their communication and courageous in their business goals. Fiercely passionate about the power of design and creativity, Emma believes empowering creative Leaders to find their unique, authentic voices and helping them establish healthy creative cultures where people flourish, not only makes good business sense but can also have the potential to transform lives and be a power for good in the world.
Emma’s clients include creative agencies, SMEs and corporates, she has delivered leadership coaching and development programmes for clients such as Design Flanders, Gensler and the DBA. She is currently working with 22 UX&D Creative Directors at the BBC. Emma established the design incubator space Spike Design and was previously Chair of the West of England Design Forum – a regional network established to inspire and connect the design community.
