One of Rachel’s first observations about successful speakers was they all seemed to have a powerful story to share.
Initially held back by a belief that she didn’t have a story to share, she set out to find her own way of bringing stories to her speaking and now trains and coaches other speakers, working with them on developing and crafting their respective stories.
Her own speaking career began in the juvenile court room, later moving on to creating and delivering training programmes, including presentation skills and ultimately to delivering her own keynotes to business professionals.
More recently she has added another dimension to her work around storytelling and speaks primarily to female leaders in the professional sectors on achieving approachable leadership through strategic storytelling.
Most leaders already have the more recognised leadership qualities of decision-making, drive and motivation. Rachel’s presentations offer a simple way to develop the less recognised qualities of humility, support and compassion that turn a good leader into a great leader.
Rachel also trains and coaches in public speaking skills, communications skills and she works with business professionals on identifying their personal and brand stories.
She is a Professional Member of the Professional Speaking Association and was Regional President for the London region in 2022.
