If you want me to come to your thing and speak at your thing I can totally do that and be potentially more eloquent than I am here but no promises. Email me at emilywritesnz @

Here’s some things people have said about me after I came to their thing and spoke at their thing.

“Emily spoke about reaching vulnerable communities in a way that was really accessible. I feel like I can do my job better now – communicating science and health in a way that will actually matter and change things”

“I cried and I laughed so hard I farted”

“Funny and heartbreaking – I haven’t laughed and cries so much in one evening”

“Emily has a way of making you feel like she’s the only one you’re talking to. I saw her at the Opera House and it made me feel like it was the most fun therapy session I’d ever been to. I felt inspired and invigorated but most of all I felt like I mattered as a mum”
