Speaker: Emma Wimhurst, Author of Boom! and founder of Diva Cosmetics

Emma Wimhurst is a sought-after Motivational Business Speaker & Business Turnaround Expert. She is a successful Entrepreneur, Broadcaster, and regular contributor to UK media and the author of BOOM! 7 Disciplines to CONTROL, GROW and ADD IMPACT to Your Business.

Emma became a self-made millionaire from the success of her biggest enterprise to date: Diva Cosmetics, which was founded after she spotted a gap in the market for colour cosmetics at the height of The Spice Girls fame in the late 90s. Following a 10 year career in-house at Revlon, Emma seized the opportunity to nurse her entrepreneurial itch and Diva Cosmetics was born. The business rapidly became the leading supplier of own labeled colour cosmetics to the majority of high street chains including New Look, Monsoon Accessorize, River Island, and George@Asda. Emma is an original mumpreneur, starting Diva Cosmetics from home with her first-born on her hip. The business rapidly grew to accommodate a full-time team of twelve with offices in central Bournemouth. The business was sold late 2003: a conscious decision by Emma to grow her family and take some time out.

Not surprising, for Emma is a natural entrepreneur, another exciting enterprise was born not long after the birth of her third child, EMpwr. Emma has become a sought-after Professional Speaker & Turnaround Expert and has worked with hundreds of business owners trouble-shooting and problem-solving, taking them to sound success and profit-making. She has a unique and highly driven style and is one of the UK’s most charismatic and entertaining business speakers.

Emma was one of the featured Big Shot Entrepreneurs in the 2009 series of Beat The Boss for BBC Children’s TV, presented by Saira Khan. She has hosted her own internet radio show via www.connekt2.co.uk, and is a regular media contributor and columnist.
