Meet the tutor

Emma Taylor has a background in acting and script-writing and has worked as a trainer since 2003. She is therefore able to give a unique perspective on public speaking based on this, offering tips to produce accomplished communicators who embrace their own style.

Emma states, ‘it’s important to me that clients realise their strengths and hone them; thereby becoming a polished version of themselves, not a weak imitation of someone they admire.’
