The SHINE Freelance Network

Our SHINE Network of Talent & Opportunity

Sharing our growing network of talented specialists to connect a blend of expertise to learning, development and change job opportunities.  

Together we are stronger, presenting the best blend of unique skills and capability

Empanda was born in 2014, and we faced all the usual problems associated with growing a consulting business. One of our primary challenges was being able to sustainably afford the talent that we needed to amplify our positive impact once we got going with a client. Since 2014 our world has changed. More and more of us are working as contractors. 


At Empanda we believe this is best done through collaboration. We want to bring together a community that collaborates, and shares resources and opportunity.
