Bio: Emilie Sydney-Smith
Emilie brings with her more than 20 years of experience in entrepreneurship, private equity and investment banking, technology commercialization, technology transfer and corporate communications.
First introduced to the Global Energy Sector during the early 2000s, Emilie would earn recognition as one of the field’s leading consultants after helping grow an energy production startup, Sydney Gas Ltd, to a US $300 million valuation over 30 months. From which, shareholder would enjoy 400% gains.
She then spent a decade in private equity, evaluating nearly 100 potential US$20 - 200 million investments annually. This honed her ability to recognize patterns that could drive or kill company growth. Following this, Emilie went on to serve as the founder and CEO of Unearth Corp, a company that adapts and repurposes proven technology from aerospace and defense companies in order to reimagine the world’s energy infrastructure.
In her role as ExO Works CEO—and in her experiences as an ExO Sprint Coach and Ecosystem member before that—Emilie has helped Fortune 500 companies and other corporations around the globe protect against technological disruption while building new business lines capable of swiftly surpassing the profitability of their core revenue streams.
With the support of the global ecosystem and community of ExO Coaches and Ambassadors, she is excited to continue helping organizations adopt the same methods that have propelled the world's fastest growing companies into exponential growth.
When not running ExO Sprints, Emilie can be found delivering other workshops, keynotes, and engaging with the global business community as a mentor, speaker, and thought leader.
