“One of the many privileges of leadership in the Australian Navy is the unique opportunity to meet and work with and alongside a number of extraordinary, extremely talented and enthusiastic young Australians willing to make a contribution to their country in the Australian Defence Force. I’ve found over the years, as time tends to blunt the memory, that you tend to remember only those young Australians, with whom you have served, who are exceptionally talented or conversely those who have spectacularly ended their careers in a shower of sparks. * *Emma Sharrock is one of those exceptionally talented young leaders that I very clearly recall first meeting when she was a Midshipman seeking guidance about a topic for her Honours thesis at the Australian Defence Force Academy. Emma was confident and intensely focussed with an open enquiring mind. Her excellent sense of humour and well developed interpersonal skills were enhanced by her impressive communication ability, all of which underpinned a quietly confident effective leadership style. It was clear at the outset that this young officer possessed the personal qualities that would harbour success in any chosen career.* *This** book is yet another exclamation mark on another fabulous milestone of her extraordinarily successful career.”
