Emma has worked in PR and Marketing for nine years and has extensive experience in media relations, copywriting, event management, and social media. Previous roles include the Corporate Communications team at national tourist board VisitEngland during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Emma worked on a range of projects including the first ever English Tourism Week, the launch of the country’s biggest ever domestic tourism marketing campaign ‘Holidays at Home are GREAT’, and ‘Growing Tourism Locally’ – a three-year marketing campaign supported by the government’s Regional Growth Fund. Emma now works with stakeholders across the AONB to promote both the High Weald itself and the inspiring projects that enhance and raise awareness of our nationally-important landscape. She is also the main contact for the High Weald Walking Festival. In her spare time, she enjoys walking through the Kent and Sussex countryside and exploring other spectacular landscapes around the world (Yosemite is a favourite).
