Emma Reynolds is an Australian-born entrepreneur, currently living between Hong Kong and Singapore. She left Australia 10 years ago, spending five years in London before moving to Hong Kong in 2010.
She is on a mission, and that mission is disruption. Whether it’s helping students embrace failure, working with entrepreneurs or roaming the halls of the world’s best companies, Emma’s message is clear – what got you where you are today, won’t get you where you need to be tomorrow.
You’ll often hear Emma saying “Work Sucks! We are stuck in the 20th century industrial age mindset, there is a severe lack of trust in the workplace today and leaders are failing to truly inspire movements inside their companies.”
Emma is Co-founder & CEO of e3 Reloaded, a boutique consultancy that focuses on turning around company culture and increasing productivity, reducing recruitment costs, reducing attrition, and applying a marketing-centric approach towards engaging employees. Her journey has been anything but ‘normal’. Emma has lived and worked across three continents; Australia, United Kingdom and Hong Kong. At 23 she started her first consulting business, at 25 a research business, and at 27 moved to Hong Kong to build her third business, e3 Reloaded.
Now, at 31, Emma combines an international speaking career with in-depth client project work – recently she has worked on transformational projects with Standard Chartered, Cathay Pacific and Ralph Lauren. She has spoken in more than 20 countries, and is often called upon when conference organisers are looking for someone to shake up the audience, challenge thinking, say things no-one else is saying and inspire people to do something different. In a recent article, Emma was called ‘The Conscious Disruptor” and it’s for this reason she is in demand as an international speaker.
In 2012 Emma curated TEDxMongKok, one of the regions most celebrated TEDx events. She spoke at TEDxHKUST in 2013 and is a regular contributor to the TED Community. She was named one of Hong Kong’s most inspiring young women last year and in 2008 made headlines in The Sunday Times having been named by Management Today as one of ’35 Women Under 35’ to watch.
