In 2006, Emma Collins made the conscious decision to leave her role as MD at the award-winning Bristol design agency Home. Aware of a lack of confidence in some Designers and a limited understanding of the value of design with many clients, Emma felt moved to direct her energy and focus to help creative Leaders know themselves, their true value and potential.
Since then, Emma has dedicated the past decade to help creative Leaders become more conscious in their roles, confident in their communication and courageous in their business goals. Fiercely passionate about the power of design and creativity, Emma believes empowering creative Leaders to find their unique, authentic voices and helping them establish healthy creative cultures where people flourish, not only makes good business sense but can also have the potential to transform lives and be a power for good in the world.
Emma’s clients include creative agencies, SMEs and corporates, she has delivered leadership coaching and development programmes for clients such as Design Flanders, Gensler and the DBA. She is currently working with 22 UX&D Creative Directors at the BBC. Emma established the design incubator space Spike Design and was previously Chair of the West of England Design Forum – a regional network established to inspire and connect the design community.
