We are excited to share a sneak peek into our 2018 featured speakers:

Co-Founder & Managing Director, Applied Influence Group
Emma served as an Engineer Officer in the RAF before transitioning to the influence capability of military intelligence. Over five tours of Afghanistan, she was placed in leadership and governance roles, leading teams to collect life-saving information. After a realisation that she was using the same influence skill set and methodology in her interactions with politicians and military commanders as she was with the Taliban, Emma co-founded the Applied Influence Group. She was honoured with an MBE (Member of the British Empire) in 2015 for her service in Afghanistan.
