The Select Guest
MEET | EMMA BATES
Featured 2.5-2.11.18 | Emma Bates makes dreams come true. At least, she makes my dreams come true and she does it by repping Away, the greatest luggage brand that ever was. Seriously, as Head of Global Marketing for the uber-cool suitcases (what makes them so cool? Hard to articulate really, but basically it's all about the marketing, so...), she's helping to change the way the world travels. And anyone who can take the sting out of packing is a shero in my book. But who is Emma Bates? She's a former blogger who cultivated her cult-like following into her own mini-Empire, securing partnerships with brands like Uber and Coach. She co-founded The Pink Protest, an organization whose hashtags include #chooselove and #areyouanactivist. She's also a former Harpist (yep. No joke. She played at The Royal Festival Hall in London) and a self-proclaimed history nerd who has some serious selects to share.
Welcome to Emma's week.
