    "Before working with Rachel, I used to see perfect strangers chat amiably and seemingly with ease, and wish I knew how to do that.  Rachel gave me some simple steps to follow which I gradually put into practise. I recently  had a chance conversation with 2 perfect strangers that resulted in a client appointment with one of them as well as an invitation to give a presentation to a group of her contacts, all within my target audience. Amazing!"

    "Before the course, I was already fairly comfortable at talking to people at events, but thought that I could be more strategic about this, and how to do that was one of my key learnings from the course. I loved the interactive nature of the day and the practise we had and I now feel OK in moving on from a conversation." (Networking Training)

    “I had already written my first keynote speech when I contacted Rachel for coaching. I wanted her help to make it the best it could be and because I was feeling anxious about presenting it. Through our series of one to one sessions, she helped me take it to a much more professional level.  She gave me so many useful tips on the content and also on my delivery, and was also great fun to work with and super supportive!

    The speech went really well and has already led on to other things. Job well done, thank you Rachel.”

    “In previous networking, I hadn’t thought much about the planning element of networking and I now feel I’ve got ideas on how to be more strategic and to plane who I want to meet and why.” +++

    “Networking is now not as scary as I had thought! I now have tips on how to build confidence before walking into a room as well as how to use questions effectively as an introduction to a conversation. Good level of engagement and activities.” +++
