About the Emerald Group

That’s over 50 years of experience, understanding and experimentation. This pioneering spirit remains as we continue to stand up for fresh thinking in both academia and practice.

Our role is to help challenge convention, bring people together in the name of discovery and put into practice what really matters. We want to provoke the kind of debate that leads to positive change.

Led by Richard Bevan as Chairman, the Group has evolved into a dynamic, digital-first business employing some 500 people worldwide. All driven by a common purpose to unlock talent and equip decision-makers with the evidence and tools to make smart choices and tackle real-world challenges.
