Emma Walker

Managing director, Wachsman

Four months after joining Wachsman in early 2016, Emma was named one of FinanceFeeds’ 30 Under 30 and rapidly became a globally acknowledged expert in blockchain PR. In 2017, Emma launched Wachsman’s Irish office, growing the team to almost 40 employees. Today, Wachsman’s Dublin office is one of the fastest-growing PR agencies in Ireland and one of the largest blockchain-focused companies in the country.

Emma has provided counsel to many of the world’s most high-profile blockchain organisations, including Lisk, Aragon, Dash, Crypto Valley Association,  Aeternity and Streamr. In August 2018, she co-founded BlockW, a platform for communication, education and the exchange of ideas, aiming to bridge the gap between the impossible and possible for women in blockchain in Ireland.

In recognition of Emma’s achievements to date, she was awarded the 2018 Special Recognition Award at the Irish Early Career Awards, shortlisted for the prestigious Image Businesswoman of the Year Awards 2018 and announced as a finalist for the Blockchain Leader Award in the 2018 Women in Tech Awards.

Emma holds a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and sociology from Trinity College Dublin and a postgraduate diploma in PR and event management from Fitzwilliam Institute.
