Emma is the Managing Partner for Talent for Deloitte NWE and Deloitte UK and sits on the Executive Committees for both. Alongside these roles, Emma leads a client service team of over 50 people within the firm’s Financial Advisory practice.
Since being appointed to the UK Executive Committee in 2013, Emma has led significant change to the firm’s talent agenda – most notably in relation to agile working (including the design and implementation of the award-winning Time Out programme); gender balance (a focus on culture change alongside targeted interventions – such as the firm’s industry first return to work programme – which has seen the firm make meaningful progress on this issue); Respect and Inclusion (including the award-winning Ask Yourself film and the firm’s unique mandatory inclusive leadership sessions); and Social Mobility (including the introduction of academic institution-blind recruitment and contextualisation of academics).
Emma – who is also a strong advocate of Gender Pay Gap reporting – was named the 2015 Woman of Achievement by Women in the City and in 2017 she featured in the Financial Times HERoes list which celebrates female leaders who support women in business. In April 2018 Emma came second in Accountancy Age’s Women in Finance awards.
She is a member of the Patron Group for Access Accountancy and also sits on the Business in the Community gender leadership group. Emma lives in London with her husband and their twin 9-year-old daughters.
