Hi Eve and Lana I worked with your lovely mum at RBS. She was fierce, super organised and had an amazing sense of humour. She talked lots about the two of you and your very different personalities and she loved you both and your dad ever so much.  She gave me lots of advice …

Hi Eve and Lana, I worked with your Mum at RBS. She was a “client” for me when I helped hire people for her team and the wider HR team. She was really lovely to work with and she really knew her stuff when it came to hiring the best people!  To me she …

Dear Eve & Lana, I was so very sad to hear about your lovely mummy, she was such a special and kind lady. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with both of you and your daddy. I used to work with your mum nearly 20 years ago at Coca-Cola Enterprises, before she had married …

To Eve and Lana,  I worked very closely with your Mummy when we were both at BG.  I have to say I was a little scared of her when I first met her, but I very quickly realised what a supporter of women she was. Also how important your Daddy and you both were …

Dear Eve and Lana,  the very first thing I remember when I think of your mummy is her HUGE smile!  I worked with her in HR in RBS.  She was super to work with – she was always helpful, very professional, held very high standards and made sure everyone did what they were meant …

It is difficult to articulate the impact that Emma had on so many people during her time at Baillie Gifford. She is somebody I am so glad I had the privilege to meet during my early career as she showed that you could be a career focused and ambitious working mum. I’ll never forget …

Dear Eve and Lana, I know you (and your Daddy) must miss your Mummy very, very much.  She was a very special person and had a great sense of humour.  We were pregnant at the same time in 2011 and I remember one day shuffling up and down the Street at RBS Gogarburn with …

Eve and Lana,  Your mum was really great at her job, but more importantly a really great person.  Emma was always professional and dealt with work challenges in a calm and smart way.  As I got to know Emma a little bit it was clear to me that she was a loving, kind friend …

Susan Allen

Dear Eve and Lana I was so very sorry to hear the news about your Mummy. I am sure you don’t need any of her work colleagues to tell you how special she was, because you know that. But as well as being a wonderful Mummy she was a fantastic friend to many, many …
