Swindon and Wiltshire’s Most Inspiring Women 2024 | Emilie Romain

By Nick Batten on 6 March, 2024

To mark International Women’s Day 2024, which takes place every year on 8th March, we’re celebrating some of Swindon and Wiltshire’s most inspiring women. 

Through our website and social media channels, we asked our readers which women in our community inspire them and created a list of 20. The list will be printed in our spring magazine and from Friday 1st March, every weekday throughout the month we are profiling and championing each of these fantastic women online and via our social feeds.

Today we put the spotlight on Emilie Romain… 

Emilie is Co-founder of Warminster-based Ecobubl Ltd, a dedicated group of experts who are passionate about clean energy and sustainability.

Raised by a mother who juggled the responsibilities of single parenthood, life threw Emilie a curveball when – at just seventeen – she too became a mother. Determined not to let circumstances define her, she landed a part-time job at a local pet store and from scrubbing cages to managing operations, she embraced every opportunity for growth and advancement.

Thirteen years of dedication and hard work later, Emilie found herself at the helm of two thriving stores before venturing into renewable energy, driven by a passion for sustainability and a desire to make a meaningful impact. Despite initial challenges in a male-dominated industry, she earned respect and recognition through her dedication and expertise.

Then, amid the chaos of the pandemic in 2020, Emilie took a leap of faith, co-founding Ecobubl LTD, a venture dedicated to pioneering green solutions in a world hungry for change. A stroke of luck then propelled her into the spotlight, where she found herself sharing insights and expertise on the “Everything Electric show” alongside industry icon and actor Robert Llewellyn.

Emilie said, “From humble beginnings to unexpected triumphs, my journey serves as a testament to the power of resilience, determination, and unwavering belief in oneself. And as I continue to chart new territories and defy expectations, I remain committed to leaving a legacy of innovation, inspiration, and positive change.”

One of her nominations said, “Emilie is genuinely one of the most inspiring people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Through all her hard work and passion, she has achieved some incredible milestones over the past few years.”
