Co-Founder & CEO :
Emma Reynolds is an Australian-born entrepreneur, currently living in Hong Kong. She left Australia 11 years ago, spending five years in London before moving to Hong Kong in 2010.
She is on a mission, and that mission is disruption. Whether it’s helping students embrace failure, working with entrepreneurs or roaming the halls of the world’s best companies, Emma’s message is clear – what got you where you are today, won’t get you where you need to be tomorrow.
You’ll often hear Emma saying “Work Sucks! We are stuck in the 20th century industrial age mind-set, there is a lack of trust in the workplace today and leaders are failing to truly inspire movements inside their companies.”
Her journey has been anything but ‘normal’. A two-time University drop-out, Emma has lived and worked across three continents; Australia, United Kingdom and Hong Kong. At 23 she started her first consulting business, at 25 a research business, and at 27 moved to Hong Kong to build her third business, e3 Reloaded.
Now, at 32, Emma combines an international speaking career with in-depth client project work. She has spoken in more than 20 countries, and is often called upon when conference organisers are looking for someone to shake up the audience, challenge thinking, say things no-one else is saying and inspire people to do something different. In a recent article, Emma was called ‘The Conscious Disruptor' and describes her journey in an interview with Radical Tribe.
In 2012 Emma curated TEDxMongKok, one of the regions most celebrated TEDx events. She spoke at TEDxHKUST in 2013 and is a regular contributor to the TED Community. She was named one of Hong Kong’s most inspiring young women in 2012 and in 2008 made headlines in The Sunday Times having been named by Management Today as one of ’35 Women Under 35’ to watch.
