Emma Hamilton

Emma has a blend of Dutch and Swedish heritage, reflecting a multicultural upbringing that has taken her to various corners of the world. After completing her bachelor’s degree in International Business Administration, and her master’s degree in Human Resource Management at Rotterdam School of Management in the Netherlands, she pursued a career in Higher Education. With 10+ years of experience in professional services roles within universities, ranging from programme coordinator to global opportunities manager, she brings a proactive, efficient, and organized approach to her current role as the office manager at How Do You Do It.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Emma finds happiness and fulfilment in her family life, as a mother to their wonderful son. Together, they relish moments outdoors, taking leisurely walks and savouring good food paired with a glass of fine wine (that’s just Emma & her husband, not the five-year old ;). Creativity finds its expression through her passion for hand lettering and the joy of baking.

Dino Carella

I am a dad of a 27-year-old boy and a coach. Redefining success gave me the clarity and peace of mind to enjoy being a father while continuing to have a satisfying career. I have experienced the challenges of this transition and now I feel privileged to be able to support working parents on this journey”.

In my corporate life, I have 30 years of international experience as a credit risk director and board member, mainly in the payments industry. I am still active as a consultant and am dedicated to coaching leaders who are eager to continue to pursue their career goals whilst embracing the privileges and the challenges of becoming a parent.

Throughout my career, I have experienced recognition and success, but also the effects of burnout. I understand how challenging it can be to keep it all in balance and, therefore, how important it is to take the time to reassess our priorities and redefine success in alignment with what truly matters to us. Having the right support during this transition is beneficial not only for the parents, but also for the companies that are keen to support and retain them.

I am the author of “The Way of the Wind,” a novel inspired by a true story that describes the awakening journey of a former manager whose limiting beliefs had led him to burnout.

Roger Coles

“As a working father of two boys, I’ve personally experienced the trials and tribulations of balancing a career with family-life over a number of years.  It doesn’t get any easier! 

I believe that everyone can benefit from support in working out what they want as a parent and as a professional.  Similarly, employers don’t always find it easy to adapt to the changing needs of parents, whilst still achieving demanding organisational goals.  Working with people to navigate these challenges fits with my personal values around creating workplaces that are, above all, human places”

Roger Coles is a facilitator, coach and consultant with 25 years of experience in the fields of individual and organisational development.  He has worked with managers and leaders in a broad range of industries including financial services, professional services, media and communications, retail, manufacturing, transport and automotive.

Roger passionately believes that there is untapped potential in all of us.  He sees his role as providing developmental experiences that help people access this more readily, and channel it in the most productive ways to deliver personal and business success.   He recognises that the modern business environment presents some unique challenges, which many of us feel ill-equipped to navigate.  So, creating the right learning environment, where people feel able to look at themselves honestly and try out new things, is a key feature of his approach.
