The quality of the work generated, and the thought, care, strategic and advisory approach, well exceeded our expectation.

The energy and value behind the work jumps off the pages for the end-users.

Beyond the high-quality results, Emma was tremendously attentive to our needs and took an interest in our success beyond the boundaries of the project at hand.

Emma has always held herself to the highest standards of honesty and integrity. Emma is a person with strong moral values who takes her responsibilities and commitments with the utmost attention and care.

Emma is an insightful and imaginative professional in the fields of marketing, publicity and business development. She goes beyond the call of duty to achieve the most beneficial results for her clients.

I have been impressed on so many levels by Emma and Sidekick. Emma’s innovative approach, ‘can-do’ attitude and how much she cares about her clients is second to none. She takes a meticulous and creative approach to everything she does. Emma is a true expert and leader in her field and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

I have worked with Emma Parker at Sidekick on a variety of assignments linked to marketing & event planning and delivery in Cayman over the last two years. She has been a reliable and hardworking partner. She knows the private wealth industry professional segment very well with years of experience in working with leading firms.
