Renowned leadership expert, believes there must be a better way

Emmanuel Gobillot Biography

A renowned leadership expert and sought-after speaker with the knowledge and creativity to inspire others and the ability to see where business issues lie and how to help fix them.


Emmanuel Gobillot’s first management position was in the financial services industry. He worked as a line manager, finding that he had a natural ability in the role. He moved on to become a program manager, getting yet more experience of how organisations work and how to be a leader.

His experiences in management meant that he saw first-hand how large organisations and individual managers can have difficulties communicating with and motivating teams. Having decided that there must be a better way, Gobillot began considering new approaches to leadership.

Gobillots dedication to improving leadership was evident and he went on to work with some of the most respected experts in the field. At Hay Group (a management consulting firm) he was Head of Consumer Sector consulting before becoming Director of Leadership Services. During this time he worked with some of the worlds largest and most well-known companies.

Sharing the methods he had learned and developed in his first book The Connected Leader: Creating Agile Organizations for People Performance and Profit allowed him to see just how much demand there was for guidance. Determined to share his ideas about how to improve leadership, how to engage employees and how to best serve customers with yet more people, Gobillot started his own consultancy, Emmanuel Gobillot Limited.

Gobillot has been able to continue to build his reputation as a speaker, a consultant, a researcher and an author and is now in more demand than ever, assisting companies of all sizes and descriptions. Just like Emmanuel Gobillot himself, Emmanuel Gobillot Limited is committed to providing sustainable and forward-thinking solutions.

Experience and an innovative spirit led Emmanuel Gobillot to consider how best to approach leadership. His abilities as a speaker and his ground-breaking but practical methods have seen him become one of Europe’s most sought-after leadership gurus.
