Emma Mills-Sheffield believes good leadership is all about mindset. Her consultancy, Mindsetup, coaches business and employees to reach their goals and increase productivity and performance, using a focus on encouraging humility and vulnerability. It was established in 2018, after the anniversary of a family bereavement prompted Emma to think about how she could help other people in a meaningful way.
Emma is also the Chair of a board for a suicide prevention charity and bakes cakes for regular afternoon teas for lonely older people in Brighton and Hove. She mentors local businesses and students and believes that entrepreneurs should be prepared to have a crash course in learning to be a “little bit of an expert in everything”.
