"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die discover that I had not lived."

Henry David Thoreau


At Living Deliberately we believe that at the heart of what we do is purpose. Why do we do what we do? Living Deliberately for us means freedom, being inspired and hopefully inspirational, putting back, having courage, approaching everyone and everything with open mind, open heart, open will. It’s not easy but it’s what drives our passion. We understand that clarity must come before effort and believe that we all have huge potential and just need the right soil conditions for it to be nurtured.

I have engaged Emma over 7 years, for a variety of critical transformation projects. Emma's skills have been instrumental in bringing about significant change across our global network, within a complex environment. She's been powerful at bringing people together, to deliver sustainable and deep rooted change.

Emma, thank you again for the excellent workshop. You did a great job of communicating and helping us walk through the day to day challenges we face as leaders of very passionate and intelligent people. The training has had a profound effect on me (for the better!) not just in my work life but in my personal life too. I still keep in touch with those I was most intimate with during the program, and I hope to cultivate those relationships. They are the first people outside of my “bubble” that I’ve been able to connect with deeply. My sincere thanks.

I find it hard putting into words the impact working with Emma has had on me. She has an amazing ability to help us see what we know ourselves and yet can’t quite access through very skilful facilitation, creating a safe place from where we can explore our often significant differences. It’s been emotional yoga (!) where I come away feeling challenged, stretched and infinitely healthier leading me to perform much more effectively in my role. I am deeply grateful.

Senior Director, USA

The real gift of working with Emma arrived in the form of her sensitive, intelligent and warm style. I was always remember and treasure the weeks we shared.
