Why us?

Tom Oxley - Director -  Bamboo Mental Health 

Emma has something to say. About burning bright, about burning out. About bouncing back better. In my TEDx talk I told the story of workplaces and mental health. Now I really feel it's time for a new story on mental health - as we enter a post-covid, hybrid-working, no-normal world. Emma's experience, and her passionate story and easy style, is something we need to hear

Marie Predergast, Head of Learning and Development

I have heard Emma speak many times and her Human Reboot is one of my go to podcasts. In my work as People Developer, Mental Health First Aider and D&I lead I recommend her talks and podcasts all the time. I enjoy her informative but relaxed style that never fails to provoke thoughts and reflection. Emma’s philosophy around rebooting is all about getting people to stop and pause, she makes it accessible to all and it inspires deeper work that helps people in thinking differently about how they look after themselves. She helps others create long lasting change one step at time in a way that works for the individual.

Shamaine Robinson - Director 

Emma Last was a speaker at my International Women's Event in March 2021. Emma shared her story which was extremely vulnerable. Emma has a passionate and engaging style, when sharing her experience and knowledge.Her story had an impact on the attendees and made them re-evaluate how to prioritise their own wellbeing.I would book Emma to speak again.

Jo Howarth - Director

Emma spoke to my members earlier this year. She is knowledgeable, experienced and engaging as a speaker. She has an open, friendly approach that brings people in and allows them to reap the benefit of her wisdom. Highly recommended

"Fantastically informative and interesting"
