Three years ago, just as Emma Lawton’s company was redesigning the Parkinson’s UK website, Emma was diagnosed herself with Young Onset Parkinson’s. She was aged just 29. Since then, the strong-willed speaker Emma Lawton has gone on to do more in those three years than she ever expected to achieve in a lifetime.

Emma Lawton’s journey has taken her from an unexpected diagnosis to winning CharityComm’s Inspiring Communicator of the Year Award 2015, featuring in a BBC television documentary, and writing articles in magazines such as Cosmopolitan, reaching out to other young women. She has also gone on to write her first book, Dropping the P Bomb (2016), which follows Emma as she comes to terms with her diagnosis and embarks on new adventures with it in tow.

The keynote speaker Emma Lawton will share her personal story of how being diagnosed at such a young age has changed her entire outlook on life and why she’s happier living with the condition than ever before. She is sure to inspire audiences with her infectious positivity, surprising humour, and honesty.
