Coaching Services

I am the founder of Simply Great Britain and have worked in business as a trainer, speaker, coach and mentor for over 20 years (longer version of the story this way). My approach to business is an holistic one, never losing sight of the fact that owning a business has to be sustainable for body, mind and spirit (not to mention the planet).

As a business owner just like you & I am very aware that most people start a business as a result of, or to create change after other careers & lives. I work closely with clients to develop skills and confidence in story telling, marketing and building a business that creates the life you want.

My approach is down to earth, full of empathy, fun and without the jargon. You can work with me using video calls or in person if that’s practical. To work with me, please get in touch .

It is worth noting that Simply Great Britain members get a 20% discount when working with me.

Sometimes you just need to dig deep with someone you trust. An initial email questionnaire, 1 hour video call and starter plan starts at just £75.

“Video calls with Emily have helped keep me on track for the last couple of years. I’ve found them a wonderful space to bounce ideas, formulate ideas and plan a campaign. It’s also a great way to get an opinion from someone who isn’t involved in the business. They can be as structured or as informal as you need.”

“Thank you for your time today. Your knowledge & personal experience of social media & tech – respected. Your ability to share, without ego or judgement – appreciated”
