Meet the PRWeek 30 Under 30 for 2018

The best thing about working in PR is…

That every day is different. PR is a fast-paced industry with things changing all the time. We’re constantly devising new strategies and approaches to help our clients stay ahead and reacting to the current news agenda.

The one thing I would change about the industry is…

The temptation to dip in and out of comms activities. There are times when comms activity should be dialled up or down, but the core strategy should be sustained.

I can’t live without…

In 10 years’ time I’d like to be…

Something I don’t even know exists now. The industry is changing so quickly, while the overall premise will be the same, I think the day to day will look very different in 10 years’ time.

Nominator says:

"Emma has shown throughout her career that she is a high-calibre comms leader."
