When Opportunity Knocks
No more self-destructive talk and poor behavior blocking a passionate and mission filled life! When opportunities suddenly pop up, Emme encourages her audiences to step into them with a resounding "hell yes", most especially when we don't feel qualified! "Opportunities just don't show up out of the blue, it's a little shoulder tap to stretch ourselves to another level, to learn and grow," she says. Emme shares her journey and how it taught her to embrace tough times, to reevaluate with whom we hang, engage in business and how important carving time out every day for peace and quiet, alone.
Isn't it time to live the life you are meant to live instead of the life you feel you should be living? Get ready to be inspired, gain the courage to leap into new challenges and learn through laughter and possibly some tears, how to turn fear into a friend to fuel our future.

Fashion Without Limits (r) : Changing the face of fashion one design school at a time
"IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME":
Problem: In the US alone,100+ million women size 14 or higher, are demanding more fashion-forward clothing than ever, leaving a whopping 20B + of missed revenue (and satisfied customers) on the table. Not only is this a cultural quagmire, it's an economic one. Today's fashion designers, retailers, and design schools have the key to fix our sluggish fashion economy by supplying the fashion industry with inclusive fashion designers to supply this thirsty market with what they desire with apparel apparel that make them look good and feel great. It all starts with education, with you!
Solution: Now in it's 5th year, Syracuse University's Fashion Design Program is going strong. Bottom line, once student designers work on size 0-24 dress forms, they learn proper proportions of scale from one form to another, then the creative process is normalized and young designers see no reason why fashion couldn't be available for all women. The good news is, the curriculum doesn't need to change, just expanded to include proper proportions and attention to detail in regard to illustration, design, grade, tech fit, and pattern making - for more sizes. Inclusive fashion can be as simple as that. (September - June talks book quickly)
Befriending Cancer, my life changing journey
What are the steps we can take to be a part in our own healing process during a serious illness? Emme reveals her battle with cancer and journey through the medical maze along with her own efforts to marry conventional medicine with holistic care. She believes “growth only comes when pushed, prodded and forced to face what lies in front of us - difficulty being the salt and pepper of life; the good with the seemingly bad, in all its glory.” "To say my cancer diagnoses was a gift may sound strange, but in so many ways it was." Emme continues to work to improve her wellness routine and find support for her immune system, post treatment. In shareing therapies that helped her stay vivacious and energetic during the roughest times and holistic healing, she was able to diminish if not offset the negative affects of chemotherapy.
Certainly a game changing talk for grappling with self doubt/drive/motivation, individuals going through cancer treatment, and families and friends of cancer patients.
