Emma is the Managing Director of Mindfulness Dubai, which she founded to pioneer the teaching of Mindfulness based programs to organisations and the public in the Middle East.  She has delivered mindfulness training to over 30 organisations in the region and worked with hundreds of individuals through 1-2-1 work and public programs.  She is passionate about equipping organisations and individuals with the tools they need to thrive in today’s ‘always-on’ environment and believes that mindfulness and emotional intelligence tools can bring transformational change to the organization, the individual, to customers and to the community at large. As a long-term meditator, Emma has personally seen the impact of these practices in her own life, and is inspired and fulfilled by seeing others experience change for themselves.

Prior to establishing Mindfulness Dubai, Emma worked in the corporate world for over 20 years, as a Human Resources Director and HR Consultant working with businesses to facilitate growth and maximise talent. She led large scale change projects within multi-site and multi-region businesses in the financial services sector and worked extensively with senior leaders to facilitate people performance, culture change and business growth.  As lead teacher at Mindfulness Dubai, Emma has worked with private and public organisations in the Middle East such as Dubai Expo 2020, Uber Middle East, Nielsen, Danone, The Federal Authority of Nuclear Regulation, Jones Lang Lasalle and Svitzer to deliver mindfulness programs.
