“Emma Swales is a knowledgeable and respected speaker at De Montfort University who consistently gets great feedback from our stakeholders when delivering marketing workshops and seminars. She's a valuable member of the Enterprise Inc business mentor programme, supporting graduate business start-ups, and her wealth of experience in business and marketing is hugely important in encouraging and educating the business mentees. She has real passion for her craft and she knows it very well indeed, which is why we chose her to deliver a series of marketing surgeries for tenants of the Innovation Centre. She inspires. We would highly recommend Emma's skills and expertise for any business looking to kick-start and re-energise their marketing. If you're attending an exhibition, you should talk to her first.”
