Corporates I’ve Worked With





I love to speak about how I transformed my fear of death into a love for life. How after nearly a decade of being consumed by my cancer diagnosis, I found a way to ‘turn the volume’ down on catastrophic thoughts and worst case scenarios and let the light in. 

I passionately believe that the thoughts we think and where we choose to place our attention plays a huge part in how our lives unfold. Over the last decade, I’ve slowly but surely gathered an ‘emotional tool box’ that allows me to live a big, bold and optimistic life. 

Following my initial breast cancer diagnosis in 2010 as a single mum of a six year old and six month old triplets, I was paralysed with thoughts of recurrence and premature death. These thoughts dominated my life in every single way for years. 

After hitting a personal rock bottom in 2017,  I slowly began to commit to looking at life through a different lens. I began practising gratitude, running, consciously shifting my focus towards thoughts that felt good. 

Slowly, the darkness began to fade and I realised that it was safe for me to feel happy and hopeful about how life could be. 

My talks are warm, engaging, honest, anecdotal and relatable with transformative messages throughout. 

I am a mother, a wife, a friend, a vibrant, strong woman who happens to be living with a potentially life limiting disease. I spent too many years living as though I was dying and now, to share the profound advice offered by my eldest son on the day of my third diagnosis, I’ve found a way to ‘live like it’s not there’ 

We all have an ‘it’.  We all have challenges to face that can feel unsurmountable. 

By allowing ourselves to embrace a vision of the future we desire we can free ourselves from the constraints of the trauma of the past. 



“We were honoured to have Emma join us at WeAreTheCity for our recent event on Menopause. Emma totally captivated our audience by sharing her own story of an induced menopause due to her cancer treatment. Emma’s speaking style is so authentic and warm, she really has a way of making you feel that you are the only one in the room and that she is speaking directly to you. The feedback was exceptional and left our audience of corporate women feeling like they were as limitless as Emma is herself!”
