My name is Emily Keyes and I am Global Business owner, a leading executive search firm headhunter, serial entrepreneur and business mentor as seen on TV.
I founded The Talent Boom Group in 2012 and turned my bootstrapped business into a global operation, at one point scaling my team to 50 people across Africa, Europe and US.
Now, still very much bootstrapped and turning millions of profit a year, I believe in quality over quantity and have pivoted my boutique business in many ways in order to constantly achieve high service and sales.
With over 16 years experience working with people and executives across 4 continents, I've worked in over 50 countries and helped make career matches for Execs and highly elite talent across the Creative, Digital and Tech Industry.
I've worked and continue to work with the worlds leading brands, ad agencies, Fortune 500's and scaling start ups. From Audible to Amazon, to PWC to EY, to AKQA to VaynerMedia, to SEMRush to Uber, we match elite talent and move people!
Due to popular demand, I am now opening my services as a business coach and mentor to talented people looking to scale their businesses.
I get it - you are a pro in your chosen field. Your skill set is what you should focus on. Whether you are opening a small business or a tech start up, I will help guide you along your journey of entrepreneurship, filling in the gaps from branding, sales to how to position yourself and your contracts for your new business.
As well as career coaching executives looking to hit over $1million salaries within the finance, tech and digital industries I have also been on TV as well as consulted for BetaBlox, mentoring and coaching over 80 small businesses and start-ups across the US.
It's not going to be fluffy. I'm going to be direct.
It might get emotional, but thats OK. We work through it.
We celebrate your successes by making a habit of the small wins that lead to the big wins.
We move and pivot to tackle every obstacle quickly and intensely to keep you on track.
We remember how far you have come and how far you will continue to go.
The difference between an olympic win can be less than a millisecond.
By the time you have finished your journey with me, you'll be winning like an athlete and have the right mindset to close the gap both professionally and personal.
Starting a business is mentally and emotionally draining, challenging yet extremely rewarding. Life is a mind game most of the time let alone when you are feeling so overwhelmed and you feel like everything is happening but nothing at all!
Whilst you may be an absolute game changer in your chosen field, the operational side, branding and sales side of your new business can be so daunting.
Here's the thing, you have to break out of the mental block and start!
I am here to coach and guide you for a minimum of three months and work with you on a business bootcamp.
We need to take a step back sometimes, audit ourselves in order to move forward to achieve ultimate success.
We will cover:
- Basics of your business and how to be ahead of the game
- Strategize vision, goals and innovation
- Establishing your MVP and USP
- Business transformation strategy
- Branding your business
- How to position your business
- Being personal yet specific with your target audience
-Influencing clients and business development planning

We will also get very personal with our emotions and mindset. Be prepared to get comfortable with the uncomfortable while we soar through your vision
An empty mind can be the most productive mind. I'm here to work with you on how to navigate your negative emotions and trigger them to be so positive to allow you to achieve ultimate success.
I'm pretty sure you have asked yourself these questions when setting up your business:
- Is this sustainable?
- Can I pay my bills next month?
- Should I just go back to work and pull a pay check?
I'll be the first one to admit, 15 years on, I still ask myself these same questions. Every business owner does. You are not alone!
We will tackle these emotions head on and face these fears and anxieties and turn them into the most powerful feelings to smash your business to the next level of victory.
We need to celebrate the small successes that will always lead to the big successes.
A successful business is usually inspired by your journey and your life challenges. There's an emotional barrier to this that every business owner needs to break away from.
