Emma Sinclair MBE joins us this week, sharing her audacious approach to life and how life lessons helped her to navigate the challenges of entrepreneurship, from car parks and health clubs to tech. She explains how her childhood connection with the stock exchange taught her how to be bold and exit driven. Emma founded Enterprise Alumni a platform which enables enterprises to stay in touch with their talent pool and engage former employees. She is the youngest person to take a company public in the world.
Emma states how there is no one-size-fits-all for an entrepreneurial team or formula for winning in life but that it is easier if you have people around you who support you, expressing the importance of trust within her founding team.
Emma goes on to discuss how her sentiments towards work have changed over time and have naturally gravitated towards building communities for the benefits of competition, support and guidance. Emma’s involvement with Unicef as their first business mentor is her largest commitment outside of Enterprise Alumni. Her project teaches entrepreneurship skills in hard to reach places and resonates with her strong belief that “it is important to start things and not be afraid to think big in order to solve problems”.
