About Emma-Jane Taylor

Emma-Jane is a Motivational Speaker, Corporate Behavioural Change Trainer, Personal Development Mentor, Author, and a Campaigner to eradicate Child Sexual Abuse.

Emma-Jane’s Journey

As a child Emma-Jane was told she was a failure, the girl going nowhere, she had a juvenile delinquent badge slapped on her when she was 13 by her psychiatrist. Being labelled at an early age came with difficulties, leading to most people believing she would be dead or in prison by the time she was 20 – although for many the resultant mental trauma from child sexual abuse is prison enough.

Emma-Jane is now the Founder of The Works Co, a series of lifestyle businesses that was founded over 25 yrs ago. She found her personal and professional success through many years of therapy, communication, support and through her love of fitness/well-being, performing arts, nature, wild-swimming & writing.

Emma-Jane organically became a Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) Campaigner, Speaker, Presenter, and Author on this subject. Her debut book, Don’t Hold Back is a motivational self-help book, published in 2018. Its purpose was to encourage her readers to find their voice, and in doing so helping others process the difficulties of CSA, rejection & abandonment. The book is based on her personal and difficult story; Don’t Hold Back highlights how Emma-Jane changed her life around to become the successful woman she is today.

Using her personal story, Emma-Jane has successfully supported many corporates with Behavioural Change in the working environment – an important part of any professional environment. As a Corporate Trainer she focuses on Behavioural Change; a key part of an individual’s development and growth, both professionally & personally. Behavioural Change allows corporate environments to flourish with better-focused employees, who are empowered by themselves.

She is described by many as a fascinating speaker; it has been said ‘you must see her once’ before forming an opinion on the work she does to garner change and awareness.
