What Is “The Business Caring Formula” About?
Emma wrote the book, The Business Caring Formula: Building Your New Leadership Lifestyle, with you in mind – high school and college students, managers, executives, entrepreneurs across industries and organizations worldwide – to give you the formula for thinking and acting as a leader at any stage of your life.
Emma will share some of her best practices in building productive and successful leaders based on her over 20 years in leadership positions at top global companies.

It starts with a call to action: being a caring leader in everything you do and wherever you go, and that includes how you interact with your personal and work- related relationships.
