Emma Sue Prince is a specialist in experiential learning and believes strongly that this methodology is key to developing life skills and soft skills as it is the only way to develop self-awareness, upon which all behavioural change is based.
She delivers powerful workshops in this regard and does so with many different target groups including “closed” groups such as Muslim communities in Bangladesh and North Africa and diverse groups in the UK including lawyers, doctors and software engineers.
She also trains trainers to facilitate using the same methodology. Her successful approach lies in working totally in the moment with a group and with what emerges from that group. She is passionate about a group developing their own context for skills such as empathy, adaptability and being proactive. In this way real and powerful learning outcomes emerge from which strategies, progression and ideas can be defined.
Emma Sue is committed to supporting young people and her workshops are also run with secondary schools, youth offending teams and with young people who are not in education, training or employment. Emma Sue works in emerging and developing countries as well as in the UK training trainers, designing materials and providing consultancy on employability skills. Her work has taken her all over the world and has given her a leading reputation in the field.
The skills Emma Sue focuses on are adaptability, critical thinking, empathy, integrity, optimism, being proactive and resilience and she runs experiential learning workshops on these skills to a range of clients in various sectors and many of them native speakers.
