Emma Spence: Exploring New Opportunities 

Emma Spence and her husband John set up their African Safari business from the UK in the late 1990s.

Then in 2009, they moved their family to the US to set up an arm of their adventure travel company focused on the American market. Emma’s role in the people development side of the company led to becoming part of the Global Learning and Development team after their US business was acquired by the Scott Dunn luxury travel brand.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Emma’s role at Scott Dunn, unfortunately, became redundant, but she is currently enjoying the training to become a certified CTI Co-Active Coach, exploring her passion for coaching and development and pondering her next steps.

Emma joins me today to dive into why she is seeking new opportunities professionally and how her extensive experience in people development led her to embrace the chance to create meaningful impact as a coach.

She shares her methods for maintaining productivity and staying on track with daily and weekly tasks and outlines why she prefers audio to reading when updating her professional knowledge and skills.

Emma also discusses the importance of flexibility and resilience in the face of unexpected challenges and shares her methods of keeping mentally and physically fit to make key decisions about where her next steps will take her. 

“The best thing you can do sometimes is rest your brain, and let it all settle before you pursue new opportunities.”
