Emma O’Brien, CEO of Embridge Consulting, has been named as one of the founders to join the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women EMEIA Class of 2023.
Launched in 2008, the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women EMEIA program recognizes entrepreneurs who have made a name for themselves driving growth and innovation throughout Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa. With programs all around the world, EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women works to identify inspiring and ambitious women in business.
Emma is one of ten women in the UK and Ireland and one of 55 across the EMEIA region selected to be part of this program. The program will see the participants coached for ambitious growth plans to expand their companies, hire more employees and build a better working environment.
Speaking on her inclusion, Emma O’Brien said: “It’s an incredible honor to have been selected for the Entrepreneurial Winning Women class of 2023. Starting and growing my own business has been an amazing journey, and during that time I’ve learnt how it is within my power to create an environment for good. EY share that same vision, empowering and affirming women across the world by fostering valuable connections with women who have walked similar paths.
“As a businesswoman myself, I understand how important the right support and mentorship can be, so I’m incredibly excited to have the chance to use my own experience to help others take the next step in their own journeys.”
Suwin Lee, private leader and EMEIA Entrepreneurial Winning Women executive co-sponsor for the United Kingdom, said: “From five women entrepreneurs in one country to a global community of close to 900 entrepreneurs across almost 60 countries, EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women is a vibrant community made up of those who view challenges as an opening for opportunities and solving the world’s biggest problems.”
