Emily Turner

Marketing Director

Emily went to art college for four years and thought she would be a tabloid hack after a newspaper journalism post-grad, but The Mirror said she was “too nice”. Her first job was working for the world’s oldest newspaper, Lloyd’s List, as a business journalist and was one of the few female reporters on the paper. She has more than 20 years' experience in journalism, content and marketing. Her words have appeared in The Guardian and The Independent, as well as many regional and trade publications across various industries. During her career, she's worked with the NHS, police, councils, universities, Johnson & Johnson, Royal Colleges (gynecology, emergency medicine, radiography), Shell, Danone, Visa, Virgin, Swiss Re, and many more! She's a fan of her hometown of Whitstable in the UK, travel, cats, Miriam Margolyes, hip hop and going to gigs - her grandad invented the Vox amplifier, which is behind the guitar sound of many bands we love today. A keen embroiderer, she's a member of the Profanity Embroidery Group and Society of Embroidered Work. When it comes to menopause she says: "My mum was renowned for leaving the dog outside the butcher, driving around with her handbag on the car roof and leaving her keys in the front door. Now I know this was menopause brain fog! As I am in perimenopause, I can empathize more!"
