Emma’s main area of focus is in training and she and her team work with the Atlassian Training to deliver training all over the world.
Emma is based in the United Kingdom, but she considers the USA her second home. Working with Atlassian takes her all across the globe delivering in Asia, Europe, and North America. She has worked with and delivered training to companies of all sizes, from start-ups, government organizations to large multinationals.

Emma is known for her dry sense of humour and her approachable training delivery style. She’s also known for her in-depth knowledge of the Atlassian stack, which she can talk to from her lengthy experience of working directly with the applications and working in and managing teams of all sizes. When she’s not delivering training, she loves travel, learning languages and cycling. Sometimes all at the same time.
