Pursuits of derring-do at Silverstone Rally School and parachuting with the RAF did not result in Rachel achieving her day dream of becoming a stunt woman. Back in the real world, Rachel has applied her energies to supporting and enabling actual people in their day to day adventures not just in the UK but also in Jordan, Italy, Tanzania and South Africa. Rachel’s experience includes working with International Companies, SMEs and on overseas Projects.
Her experience includes a 12 year ‘tour’ in London; where at PricewaterhouseCoopers she worked with the Leadership Team Partner responsible for Strategy in Europe, The Middle East and Africa and at Fletcher King plc working with the Senior Partner responsible for commercial offices on special projects. Rachel has also worked with the International Training Team of British American Tobacco to enable their delivery of Global Business Development Programmes to Managers Worldwide. Her last overseas contract was with The Research & Technical Cooperation Services Unit for the Trade Development Agreement Facility (TDCA/Dialogue Facility) based in Pretoria. She has built strong relationships with many high level clients including the South African Government, European Union Delegation in South Africa, BBC, Nokia and Yahoo.com. Rachel is part of The Springfield Centre’s Enabling Team and is acting Business Manager.
