Marjorie Emsley is the nicest and gentlest woman you could ever wish to meet but don't be fooled! Marjorie knows full well how to battle to get things done.
When you listen to Marjorie what strikes you is that this is a thinking person - she gets things done not by charging ahead and brushing people out of the way or by wielding the big stick of authority. Marjorie is a thinker and gets the best possible results by looking at all sides and working the problem through - from being a senior person in the Guide Association a job which took her all over the United Kingdom and into Europe, to being a headteacher and a key figure in the Methodist Church.
A skill which astounded me is Marjorie's brilliant hand bell ringing. When asked, she will say 'oh it's just a matter of counting'. Believe me, it's not!
