She has developed an impressive range of workshops and talks focusing on working effectively with empowering females and is becoming a world leader in this field. You are in for a real treat. She’s brilliant.”  
  •   Peter White, General Manager Marketing, Virgin Australia   "On behalf of Virgin Australia, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to Emma for the fantastic job she did facilitating workshops we held for some of our airline’s most valuable, top tier Velocity members and tennis superstar, Maria Sharapova. Both sessions were extremely well structured and Emma’s energy level and positive attitude helped motivate the group and keep them engaged and at ease with Maria Sharapova at all times. The activities were entertaining, well organised and Emma did an outstanding job adapting to each individual and the varying skill levels within the group. The feedback post-event was extremely positive from all involved so thank you."
  • Mel Benson - Principal Teacher of Sport | Faculty of Physical Education, Sport & Outdoor Education “Emma Doyle delivered the latest information in teaching pedagogy and methodology breaking down the ‘how’ and ‘when’ you learn and 'Practical strategies' on how to be more indirect with teaching styles. Creating this environment led to staff taking away the core principles presented and having the confidence to develop further for nursery and primary classes to engage all students in their own learning. Emma presented in a clear, energetic and focused manner. The key message to this presentation was specialising on working effectively with girls by explaining the effective use of language and communication skills. Emma's passion for the development of empowering and communication with girls was firmly backed up by her wealth of experience in working with girls in sport and tennis, on and off the court. Emma certainly left the room feeling full of inspiration and ready to put new ideas and suggestions in place.”
  • Brianna Morgan – Former US College tennis player and Strength and Conditioning Specialist, AUSTRALIA "I began working with Emma as an aspiring junior tennis player. The thing I remember most about those sessions were Emma’s infectious energy, passion for life and commitment to bringing out the best in your mind and body in every session. Now, the days of junior tennis are long gone, but Emma had such an indelible influence on my life as a coach that she remains to this day a highly respected and loved mentor and friend. This is a credit to Emma as not just a great coach, but a truly exceptional person."
