Emma Slade in BhutanEmma Slade was born in Kent and educated at universities in Cambridge and London. She had an exciting international career in finance which she committed to with mental drive and a tasteful selection of suits. But a deep seated desire to enquire into the deeper aspects of what it is to be a human being was brought to the surface following a life-changing visit to Jakarta, Indonesia.

Her first book, Set Free, detailing her inspirational story, was published in April 2017. All proceeds from the book will be donated to Emma’s charity, Opening Your Heart to Bhutan. The book can be ordered on Amazon UK.
