I have had the pleasure of working with Emer for 2 years on BAT’s largest ever global change programme. Emer has brought to the team a rare combination of both professional consultancy skills, and a pragmatic can-do attitude – never hesitating to roll her sleeves up when necessary. Emer always strives to deliver the best possible outcome for the business, and I would have no hesitation in working with her again in the future.

Nigel Batty, Change Management Director, Enterprise Solutions, Unilever
I worked with Emer on two transformation projects impacting Broadcast and Production staff at Sky. Emer’s contribution was felt on both a macro and a micro level, where she worked closely with HR; Comms; Programme; and Operational teams to deliver the change strategy for the programmes. Particular value was gained from the design and implementation of a consolidated change approach; agreement with stakeholders of the key messages associated with the programme, and the design and delivery of key change management events for managers with impacted staff. I found Emer to be a useful coach and sounding board on what I needed to do in my role; an innovator of new ideas into the project; and a safe pair of hands when looking at how to manage change in a live broadcast and production environment.
Andrew Gillett, HR for Tapeless and Sky Studios, BSkyB
Emer played a key role in project managing a number of key projects as part of my team at British Airways. She is an excellent project manager with great skill in delivering the plan and budget through her ability to organise and inspire people to deliver for her. She is in the top group of project managers I have worked with in my career and I would strongly recommend her.

Emer is a first-class change leader and has the personality and experience to engage at all levels throughout an organisation to deliver effective tools to enable cultural change. Her talents and her personality will be sorely missed in the Transformation Programme within Royal Mail.

I worked with Emer at Royal Mail between March ’09 and July ’09. Her leadership, change knowledge and expertise were superb. She maintained a proactive, positive, friendly and dynamic approach, even within a challenging environment. It was good to work with her.
