We were delighted to welcome Emma, who owns The Green Bean Cafe on Southwick Green, to the Academy.
It was fascinating to hear about Emma's career journey from studying biology at university to working as a pathologist in the NHS for over 20 years to owning her own cafe.
Emma explained her every day is different and how she loves the variety and the challenge of running her own business. She gave practical examples of how she has to use the eight essential skills everyday and explained why it is important to develop these transferable skills.
She also brought some delicious cookies for us to try - which were very well-received 😀
'Do what makes you happy!'
