Hello, I'm Emer Kennedy
I am an executive coach and founder of Mind Canopy - a coaching company for talented individuals who strive for success in their work and balance in their life.
When I left the corporate world to set up my company, I wanted to create a bespoke coaching practise that was holistic in its approach as well as discreet and personalised. While I loved my ten years as a Senior Director at Google, my passion for leadership and personal development eventually led me to dedicate my life to supporting managers, senior executives and professionals as they navigate their career and life.
Like so many of my clients I believe in a lifetime of continuous learning, whether through formal education, courses, reading or other means. I have been privileged to work with some of the leading Wellbeing specialists and to study at some of the best schools in the world: UCD in Dublin, the Hudson Institute in Santa Barbara, California and INSEAD Business School in Fontainebleau, Paris.
This is where I dreamt up the idea of Mind Canopy with other coaches, because Mind Canopy is more than just me: We are a team of highly trained coaches and experts with first-hand experience. We know what climbing the career ladder is like, what it means to look for and take on new opportunities.
My coaches and I are endlessly fascinated by the potential that lies within each person. Every conversation, every individual we get to interact with is a source of inspiration. Sharing our knowledge, giving suggestions, making use of both established tools as well as the latest thinking to create a bespoke coaching solution that is matched to the individual is what gives us at Mind Canopy joy.
In short, we simply love what we do.
“I came to Mind Canopy with a wide reaching brief, looking for guidance on how to make more deliberate and informed decisions about my next career paths. Rather than jumping into solution mode and carving out options from the outset, Emer approached the question from a space of self discovery which was ultimately much more rewarding. She really got to know me, and as a result, I now feel that I know myself better too. I am much more able to stand by and back my own decisions, and am energized to pursue passions that align closer to my core values and goals in life”

Plus she is one of those people that really cares about your success so she helps you keep your energy up even in difficult moments.”

“Working with Mind Canopy enabled me to unlease and explore more openly my hearts desires and I am now embarking on a journey based on a philosophy that is the true me.”
Dublin - CEO - CarberryGallagher
“Mind Conopy have helped solidify my own purpose and values structure, helped with better understanding my personal experiences and how to use these to develop my leadership style and question old beliefs and their validity as I move on and up in my career. My coaching sessions have prompted a realisation that it is essential to one’s personal growth to do this activity periodically. Emer skilfully creates the environment to allow one to grow, when she asks the pertinent questions at the right time, in an otherwise natural conversation and allows time for self-reflection when one of those light bulb moments land. One of the best personal investments without a doubt".”
