About The Capable Manager - Emma Rose

The Capable Manager - A Mini Business Consultant With A Big MBA.

The Capable Manager has an MBA and has been awarded Licentiate Status with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

Following her first career in the music business managing rock bands such as Weezer and Zodiac Mindwap, she returned to full time employment after maternity leave. Developing a successful career as an award-winning corporate sales person in two Fortune 500 companies, she started her MBA studies and embarked on a management career that took her in to the Public and Third Sectors.

As a lateral thinker, The Capable Manager's expertise was required in roles that spanned the Private, Public, and Third Sectors - and provided the right foundation for delivering specialist business support for SMEs and corporate clients as a 'mini' consultant; selling affordable chunks of management time to entrepreneurs who want support and an extra management pair of hands to look after their people, their processes, or their pounds.

Social Media Lectures
”The Capable Manager has an outstanding vision on the use of today’s new and social media. Not only with her background as a business consultant, but also as an expert in social media for musicians, she knows how to apply these new media to ‘sell’ a product or an artist. A winning combination. When she isn't lecturing here at the Academy, her digital lectures make a perfect connection with blended learning and are eye-openers for my students to think about new and social media.

Commercially sensitive client of Tenders UK (contracted The Capable Manager)

Our client was delighted both with the quality of the output you produced and the way you helped them shape the proposition. You have been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with you on a regular basis going forward." Mark Frost, MD at Tenders UK

Marketing Strategy

I would like to really thank The Capable Manager for the help she has given me with my Learn Sign Language business. When we met I had a basic website and a singular product that was not marketed at all and was just ticking along on it's own. The Capable Manager helped me look at the foundations and create a marketing strategy, a unique brand, republish and extend the DVD range and completely redesign the website to support this new brand. She also helped me and still is helping me promote my Twitter campaign of which has helped me to develop a commercial partnership with a leading body within the Deaf community. The Capable Manager always has the 'next steps' in mind which is useful for me to push the business forward" Sonia Hollis, MD at Learn Sign Language.
