Emma Lambert

Emma is a qualified nurse, teacher and organisational change expert who has discovered the power of coaching in every aspect of personal and professional life. Her coaching credentials include Relationship Systems Intelligence, Academy of Executive Coaching Diploma, Leadership Circle Profile and ICAgile coach and Emma now spends her time supporting teams and individuals in a variety of industries to be the best versions of themselves that they can be. 

Her experience comes from 15 years in the National Health Service and almost two decades in the pharmaceutical industry where she has led learning organisations and major organisational change and transformation teams within Roche, Novartis and Lonza in her adopted home of Switzerland. 

Emma takes inspiration from watching people realise the power of a collaborative and inclusive culture that allows experimentation, failure, learning and growing and the impact it has on the individuals within an organisation and ultimately on the overall success of a business. In a world where time to think and breathe is often seen as a suboptimal use of time she loves to hold the space for people to find the value in it and watch them flourish. Without people an organisation is an empty space, putting people first fills the space with potential, coaching helps realisation of the potential and drives a happy and healthy organisation.
