Emma King Consultancy works with clients across the museum, heritage and cultural sectors to turn ideas into reality. I help organisations to understand their audiences, interpret collections and stories, manage complex projects, research and write successful funding bids, create meaningful business plans and develop new partnerships. I've recently moved back to freelance work after a three-year stint as director of the Holocaust Exhibition & Learning Centre in Huddersfield during which I curated and project managed a critically acclaimed new permanent exhibition on the Holocaust. Take a look at my portfolio and do contact me if you want to talk through ideas. I love hearing from new people and I'm always happy to chat.
Emma curated and project-managed the UK's newest permanent exhibition about the Holocaust.
I recently achieved Chartered Manager status, which means I'm recognised by the Chartered Management Institute as a professionally qualified manager.
I'm working on re-establishing my freelance business and planning a relaunch in the autumn. Watch this space!
I'm about to start a new role as Director of a new Holocaust Heritage and Learning Centre in Huddersfield.
What our clients say...

Lilian Black, Chair, Holocaust Survivors' Friendship Association
- I have been impressed by Emma's professional knowledge, her creativity and her sharp, analytical mind. She is highly organised and has a good portion of common sense. Most of all, I have valued Emma's ability to take ownership of any task she faces, contribute new perspectives, and make everything that
crucial bit better than it was.
Almut Gruner, former CEO, Thackray Museum
- The suite is excellent as it highlights the diversity of the subject... the resources have been considered to engage pupils to learning more about the subject and understanding WW1 wasn't all about trenches.
MyLearning Teacher Panel comments on learning resources for Joining Up the Humber
- It has been a pleasure working with Emma, she has been an asset to the team and provided us with exactly what we needed. She is very methodical and organised in her approach, always delivering on time and to a very high standard. Emma provided invaluable information during the front end evaluation phase which helped to inform the design brief. It is often easy to forget that Emma isn't a full time member of the team due to her comprehensive knowledge of the project, and willingness to get involved.
Amanda Phillips, Exhibition Manager, Eureka! The National Children's Museum
