Emma is Head of Creative at SPIXII (an insurance startup), an author and speaker, and was recently featured in the BBC2 documentary ‘The Big Life Fix’, looking at the power of design to transform people’s lives.  Diagnosed with Parkinson’s at 29, Emma has written about her experience in her book, Dropping the P Bomb.  At TEDx Square Mile, Emma will touch on 10 things Parkinson’s has taught her about life, herself and other people to show how being diagnosed has been the making of her, leaving her grateful rather than hopeless.  She will show us how to reassess our own lives, switch up the positivity, stop sweating the small stuff and learn things in the process.  She will also show us how even in the darkest times there’s always something to giggle at.
