I help Women in Tech be more visible and become authentic leaders.

Women still only make up a quarter of tech-related jobs shrinking to 10% at senior leadership level.

To get recognition they are expected to adapt to the male-dominated culture and leave behind the valuable alternative perspectives they bring. 

I help women in tech find the confidence and resilience to speak out, challenge the status quo and be the role models the industry needs.

Women still only make up a quarter of tech-related jobs shrinking to 10% at senior leadership level. 

Many of those women become leaders by becoming more ‘male’  to fit the standards for career progression and recognition. This ticks the box for diversity but misses the new insight that women bring.  

I’m passionate about increasing the number of women in tech who feel confident enough to share their perspective, resilient enough to challenge the status quo and be the role models the industry needs.

With more than 20 years working in tech, as a software engineer and a range of leadership positions alongside 15 years of coaching puts me in a great position to support you to step up as a leader, build your influence and make a difference in the areas that matter most to you. 

I offer a range of different ways for us to work together, from online programmes to bespoke one-to-one coaching, as well as the opportunity to join a community of other women in tech through my mentorship programme.

With more than 20 years in tech and 15 years of coaching I bring the support you need to step up as a leader, build your influence and make a your difference.

Stories to Inspire from Women IN Tech


Every great adventure begins with a single step into the unknown.

What people say about me

"Emma is an amazing coach and her coaching has really helped me reframe my life and work.
Our conversations have been very explorative and open, and after every session I’m overflowing with good feelings.
I’m at a point now where I can’t recognise myself from the first session, and I am in a much better place than I ever have been thanks to Emma!
A word that best sums up this whole experience is pure Magic."
Frida Arnsten
Concept Artist, Silent Games
"Emma radiated a really strong authenticity and compassion which made it much easier for me to be totally open and honest, giving me the ability to talk about myself as I really am, rather than as I maybe "should" be or what I think society might expect of me."
Lucy Schlichting
Front End Innovation Senior Engineer, Braun GmBH
“Emma was an amazing help to me as I got my new business off the ground. She was always willing to help with anything I had questions on, be it strategies, pitch decks or even important emails. Her advice made me feel more confident in interactions with clients and potential partners and she even made introductions to people she knew in my industry. I don't know how I would have gotten started without her. I highly recommend working with her if you get the chance.”
Bethany Watrous
Founder/ CEO, Experience Heritage
