Emma Sue Prince is a qualified teacher and management development trainer, author and business consultant. Her expertise lies in soft skills, trainer training, materials design, qualification development and management development. She provides employability, soft skills and education consultancy in emerging economies all over the world working on large-scale projects in India, Malaysia, Tanzania and in Bangladesh in partnership with the Department of International Development and the British Council. Emma Sue developed Unimenta to make it easier for teachers and practitioners to deliver soft skills and personal development.
She is author of The Advantage, published by Pearson Business and translated into eight languages.. The Advantage redefines soft skills as personal competences we can all develop and nurture: adaptability, empathy, critical thinking, integrity, optimism, being proactive and resilience. Emma Sue has designed a powerful experiential learning workshop to develop these skills. These workshops have been piloted all over the UK as well as in different parts of the world with different target groups (from unemployed people to graduates, entrepreneurs and senior management). They work on the premise that if the experiential learning exercises are scripted it frees up the trainer to totally focus on and be in the moment with their group – the group decide the context for the 7 skills and they decide on their own learning outcomes as they take part in and experience the activities.
Emma Sue is currently licensing trainers to deliver this workshop. It has so far been adopted by the Affinity Sutton Housing Association in the UK and is being run 3x a month with their young people to help them back into employment. It’s also being introduced in Hungary, Spain, Italy, Dubai, India andBangladesh with diverse groups including teachers and senior management at Starbucks and Nestle.
Emma Sue has just finished her second book for Palgrave Macmillan: Practical Business Communication which focuses on the link between our brains and how we communicate. It is a practical guide for graduates and was published in July 2017.

Operating her own business consultancy at the time meant that her business strategy lectures were infused with just the right amount of academic theory and real business practice.
