Described as ‘the first leadership guru for the digital generation’ and ‘the freshest voice in leadership today’, Emmanuel has worked with organizations ranging from Astra Zeneca to Zurich Financial Services via Google and The United Nations.
For over 10 years, his interventions have focused on creating the capability in organizations to deliver results through world-class leadership underpinned by his mantra that ‘there must be a better way and together we will find it’. He has worked with the senior leadership teams of companies such as Vodafone and Mondi Group to help them develop the kind of leadership instinct that will position them on their next growth curve.
One of Europe’s most sought after leadership speakers; he is the author of Kogan Page’s UK and US bestsellers ‘The Connected Leader’, ‘Leadershift’, ’Follow The Leader and ‘Disciplined Collaboration’ published by Urbane Publications in May 2016. His latest book ‘Unleash Your Leader’ co-authored with Katherine Thomas was published in 2019.
In 2007 he left his role as Director of Leadership Services at Hay Group (where he had also occupied the role of Head of Consumer Sector Consulting) to set up Emmanuel Gobillot Limited as a way to concentrate on his writing and speaking career whilst developing best-in-class solutions with world-class clients. He is also co-founder of Collaboration Partners a boutique consultancy specializing in helping clients realize the value of collaboration.
A French National, Emmanuel moved to the UK in 1985 where he is now permanently based. He holds an International Baccalaureate from the United World College of the Atlantic, a Master of Art with Honours from St Andrews University and a Diploma in Management Science from Nottingham Trent University.
