The power of 15

15 is a really significant number to me and it gave me clarity.  Not in a superstitious or spiritual sense, but in a practical, let’s get stuff done sort of way.

There was a 15-year age gap between my sister and I, but after her passing when I was in my early twenties, I didn’t know how it would shape what I chose to do in the future.  Then 15 years later, I knew I could use the experience I’ve built up since to help others.  Having become stronger and more focused because of this experience, I started Mindsetup, to help you find focus, clarity and strength too.

Because I understand that every day I have is a gift, I make it count.

15-minute activities

There’ll be many things you can do in 15 minutes to be productive, 15 minutes of exercise or mindful thought to keep yourself balanced, and in 15 minutes there’ll be something really great you can do to help someone else.  What can you do today to make it count? This is something I work with my clients on to help them make every day count.

Emma’s experience

Over the last 15 years, I’ve gained experience in sales related project management, process improvement, training delivery and coaching in the financial services sector, creative and digital industries and engineering consultancy typically based in Brighton and London. I’ve experienced working with public sector organisations, FTSE100 and Fortune500 companies, charities and start-ups. Although they all operate very differently, what they’ve all got in common is… people!

It’s a passion of mine to empower people and to look beyond pure profit and business efficiency. A successful business is more than just the bottom line.

Having had a long and obsessive love of planning, organisation, project management, leadership and team development and working with really good people, I use all these skills with Mindsetup, to help you become productive with a purpose.

But more importantly it’s mixing these skills with the experiences of resilience, growth, empathy and knowing that life is short, which makes Mindsetup different. It’s from my experience here that I can offer a very different approach to coaching and team development work.

Charities and education

Emma is also a board trustee for the Brighton based charity Grassroots Suicide Prevention, enjoys putting on afternoon teas for Contact the Elderly and also runs workshops for the University of Sussex on their MBA programme.
