“Each of us is an artist of our days; the greater our integrity and awareness, the more original and creative our time will become.” John O’Donoghue
I have been working to help individuals and organisations develop and enhance their true potential for over 20 years.
I help leaders to become more effective, strengthen their expertise and have greater positive impact on their teams and the business as a whole. I help business founders, partners and senior boards strengthen their vision and their strategy for growth and/or change. I provide advice on guidance when partner relations are strained and ensure they get back on track, strengthen or develop solutions to move those involved forward to safeguard the future success of the individuals and the business. I also help identify new senior talent to grow or bolster the existing leadership team.
I help teams work together in a more dynamic, collaborative and ideas driven way which allows them to support each other’s strengths and minimize each other’s weak spots.
I help companies develop strong and resilient cultures which are driven by open and honest communication, a flexible and ideas-sharing approach and a desire to always keep learning and developing.
I specialise in working with creative and high-tech companies by helping them to develop core strategies around leadership, performance, culture and growth. I have worked with start-ups that have gone on to be multi million pound businesses, medium sized businesses that have gone on to become international, award winning names, and global firms that have doubled in size and radically enhanced their performance and offering. I also work closely with small owner-manager companies that wish to remain small but have a unique and world class offering, and need support in continually developing new approaches and skills to stay ahead of their competitors.
Companies I have worked with include Landor, Fitch, Gensler, CallisonRTKL, McCann, Edelman, Household, Dew Gibbons, The Team, Intel, Event Communications, Microsoft, Havas, Baltimore, Edge, Vodafone, Blacksheep Design, Trintech, Inspired Gaming Group, Proud Creative, Portland Design, Conran Design Group, Dragon Rouge, Centre Screen
Through a range of consulting and coaching services I ensure that the companies I work with tap into their talent, their skills and their potential and use these to grow in a sustainable way, beat off their main competition, secure the best talent in the market and have year on year growth and success.
“Rachel has an uncanny way of finding the key strengths and maybe more importantly weaknesses in individuals and organizations. With that insight, she is able to open new opportunities and awareness of the impact we have on our colleagues and clients. She is an intuitive coach, knows when to challenge and when to empathize, knows when to ask a question and knows when to listen. She is also a talented head-hunter with an enviable network. She is an expert in the design field and her inside knowledge and contacts are invaluable to a business who is wishing to grow and develop”.
