EMMA GRANT WILLIAMS • PRESENTER

Live television.  Unscripted. No delay, no commercial breaks.

No way out.

Live television has been my world for many years.  Whilst exposing and demanding, it’s also truly exhilarating and an amazing place to train.  Now, with close to 3,000 hours of live TV under my belt, I’ve had the opportunity to learn the craft of creating entertaining, engaging and compelling stories – on the spot, with immediacy and spontaneity.

From intimate audiences to international arenas, my curiosity about people and places forms the centre of my storytelling.  I’ve had the privilege of interviewing people from all walks of life – inventors, award-winning designers, CEOs, scientists, musicians, photographers, parents and health experts – and I love discovering the common threads of humanity that unite us all.

This approach has brought me many opportunities: with global media corporations, international live broadcasts, roadshows, narration and voiceover, voxpops, interviews, lifestyle editorials, professional development programs and e-learning.  I’ve had some amazing experiences working with stars such as Patrizio Buanne, Katherine Kelly Lang, David Emanuel, Lisa Hoffman, The Wiggles, Ada Nicodemou and The Koi Boys.  I’ve also been inspired by people who may not be household names, but whose passion, commitment and spirit shines through.  I most recently hosted TVSN for seven years, appearing live across Australia and New Zealand, specialising in presentations on health, lifestyle, design and photography. I’ve also written for a number of publications including The Sydney Morning Herald and Kids Health & Wellbeing Magazine.

Because the thing is, I’ve always been interested in how humans relate.  And I see that now more than ever, we face an isolation epidemic.  We’re yearning for connection with ourselves, with others and with the world we live in.  I believe that storytelling is an antidote to this separation.

Above all, I understand that good business needs good relationships, and good relationships need great communication.  Powerful storytelling can inspire, educate, compel, heal… and it’s at the heart of any connection with your audience.

I can tell your story.
