She is a role model for women in business, women in general- independent, focused and speaks from experience, absorbing knowledge, asking the right questions and listening well, extending empathy to those she touches the lives of. I have known Emma for many years and watched and admired as she fearlessly conquers every project she imagines, turning them into a beautiful reality. Happy to be involved in business and personally with this lady”
“When Emma-Jane asked us to be part of her podcasts helping to give young people a voice, we didn’t hesitate to say yes. After touring schools with our anti-bullying song ‘Sticks and Stones and Mobile Phones’ and seeing first hand how bullying affects young people, we were pleased to hear of the work Emma-Jane is doing to raise awareness for bullying especially as it is a subject we can all relate to personally. Emma-Jane was a knowledgeable and welcoming interviewer and we were honoured to be asked, thank you Emma-Jane”
