Emma Collins has provided Bath Spa University with consultancy support for a number of different courses that have run over the last couple of years, both for creative industry professionals and for students. Emma always brings a huge amount of energy to whatever she does and is very passionate about ensuring that her delegates walk away having developed a new confidence or skill that will enhance their professional expertise. Emma is able to connect with people very well, no matter what their age or background, and make them feel completely comfortable and fully motivated to engage in the service she is offering. From my perspective, it is great working with someone that you feel 100% confident will deliver to a high standard every time and I have received nothing but positive feedback from attendees that have worked with her. I highly recommend Emma and would go as far to say that you’re missing out if you don’t have the experience of working with her.

I worked with Emma as part of a team delivering a feasibility study on the growth of Thelma Hulbert Gallery for Devon County Council. Emma is a truly amazing individual and an inspiring person to work with. Her optimism, joy and sense of adventure lead you to think creatively and in many different ways. She is full of ideas and her generosity of spirit enables others to have a voice. More people like her are needed out there.

We’ve been working with Emma over the past three years. She helps us take the things we’d only dare to dream about and shows us the way to turn them into a reality! Having spoken to many different business advisors in the past, Emma is the only person who balances the reality of running a business with the emotional side, which is so important to us in the way we run our studio. She brings so much raw energy, enthusiasm and smiles to every topic we work on and I can’t think of anyone better to advise and inspire creatively focused studios like ours.
