Feedback FROM EVENTS

Advertising Week x Facebook Table Talk Series

“Emily brought a refreshing authenticity and relatability, even via a virtual environment using BlueJeans. She avoids business speak and distills complex ideas into simple, relatable frameworks, like her idea of ‘3D Leadership.’ When Emily speaks, it’s clear she’s not trying to drive an agenda, but approaches the opportunity with a generous spirit to empower and inspire.”
Karen Teo
FounderVice President, Global Business Group, APAC, Facebook

Creative Leadership New Zealand

“Was wonderful to have Emily contribute to the success of the 3rd Creative Leadership NZ conference here in Wellington, NZ at the end of 2019. Her keynote plus workshop was extremely well received and many delegates highlighted the impact on their thinking/future leadership practices. Come back again soon please!”

MOJO Conversations

““Emily led a Spare Room interactive and engaging workshop for our monthly MOJO Conversations event. She guided a discussion among more than 90 participants from Asia Pacific and Europe. Her authentic and warm style and inspiring stories kept the room personal despite being virtual. Our attendees shared that this was one of the best MOJO event so far.”

GRMA Growth & Innovation Forum

“It was our privilege to have Emily present to our audience of senior leadership from fortune 500 corporations at GRMA’s Growth and Innovation Forum. She left a remarkable impact on our group. Her talk was both engaging and inspiring. With elegance and style, Emily delivered a fresh perspective about how purpose driven values can lead to successful business growth. She coins the term “social legacy” and through her authentic conversation with audiences, she inspires passion in leaders and teams to reflect deeply about what kind of social and company legacies they wish to leave and the possibilities of their impact. Whether Emily is speaking to audiences of 25 or 1000, she always inspires and delights!”

“Emily, I cannot express my gratitude for your honesty, vulnerability, and advice today in the Google fireside chat.

“Each year we take some of the best-of-the-best college leaders through an intensive 1-year journey that includes time with senior executives from the most powerful companies in the world. Each year Emily’s impact on our student leaders is flat-out stunning! She challenges and teaches in a way I’ve rarely seen. You think you’re just listening to an engaging or humorous story from her life and then realize you’ve learned a killer truth for your own. Whether it’s life lessons, work principles, or straight-up challenge, you won’t find a better use of your time than a few hours with Emily Chang.”
