Emma King to speak at next Polaris networking meeting
We're thrilled to announce that founder member, Emma King, will be speaking at the next Polaris networking meeting on 29 September 2020.
Emma is the Founder and Managing Director of The Friday Street Club, which was named the Best Small PR Consultancy in South Africa at the 2020 PRISM Awards. She has had over two decades of experience in marketing strategy and communications in South Africa, across the African continent and the UK.
She has headed up and implemented campaigns for a number of local and global brands and businesses, including Guinness, Disney, Cathay Pacific Airlines, the South African Breweries, Remy Martin, Pick n Pay, Zeit MOCAA and the V&A Waterfront. She is also well versed in planning and implementing Pan-African communications campaigns for drinks giant Diageo, having spent time over a five-year period on the ground in in West and East African markets (focusing on Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Cameroon), ensuring their execution was world class.
She writes a monthly column on PR and communications for the leading industry website MarkLives and is the Chairman on the Board of The Underdog Project, an NGO that works with at-risk teenagers and shelter dogs.
Emma has worked with companies in multiple industries and at all stages of business maturity - from start ups to global giants - and as a successful entrepreneur in her own right, she has seen first hand what works and what doesn't.
She will be sharing her insights about the finding your purpose, and creating a values-based business around the things you love. “I think you can work hard, be financially successful, treat people well and be happy – these things don’t need to be mutually exclusive,” she says.
Be sure to book your seat to hear how to build a values based business that makes you happy.
