"When I was head of International for Boots I had hundreds, actually thousands of people working for me. I had simple ways of categorising people as most managers do in various ways. However, I always have a special category for the few, the ones you could rely on in an absolute crisis when mistakes were not an option- the ones you threw the toughest assignments at, as you knew they would go about it in a logic and systematic way and get it done without any fuss and bother! Well Rachel sits very firmly in that select category of few - the dependables who let me sleep easy at night.
I would without hesitation have her back on my books - but alas I am the other side of the world now so that not an option but lucky you who ever takes her on - you get someone from my special category! Congratulations!"
Dean Thompson, Regional Managing Director (Asia), Walgreens Boots Alliance
"Rachel and I worked on a global project for Walgreens Boots Alliance’s international retail markets. Her communication, planning and stakeholder management skills are very strong. Whilst working together it became clear that Rachel is a keen collaborator; happy to share her insight and knowledge, whilst adapting to new dynamics and learning on-the-fly. Working in a large business can be hard to navigate and lonely, Rachel always puts her colleagues first, taking time to provide support and advice. She’s great fun and a true communications pro."
Cameron L'Estrange, multi-talented digital strategy, product and project professional
"If you’re looking for someone who can work effectively with multiple stakeholders to shape fun, engaging events that share important information in a motivational way, then look no further than Rachel!
Rachel has supported us with the messaging and session planning for our 2018 and 2019 employee conferences. Working with our senior leadership team, she helped to design creative presentations and sessions that informed and engaged almost 1,000 delegates. Her positive, solution focused attitude made it easy for her to work with leaders from across Access, and she just as easily fitted into our (already formed) project team.
For the time Rachel was with us, I appreciated her support and flexibility to get the events over the line. The events were a storming success with employee feedback showing well over 90% of people feeling better informed about, and more engaged with Access as a result of attending the conferences. Rachel played a big part in achieving this!"
Peter Salmon, Head of Communications, Access Group
"Rachel is a pro-active, knowledgeable, professional communications executive. She advised over a 12 month period on how to implement an effective communication strategy and implemented our communication channels. Rachel switches easily between strategic advice and practical hands on help and was pivotal in assisting with our business transformation agenda.."
