Ready for big school

8th February 2019

Rachel has worked with the Rural Action Derbyshire team on a number of projects. She brings energy, clarity and inspiration to everything she does.

She has a talent for bringing out the best in people and has helped our staff to develop skills in enterprise development, strategic development and bid writing. Her coaching input to our team helped them to secure a significant funding bid in a very competitive environment.

I can’t recommend her enough!

Beverley Parker, CEO

Rural Action Derbyshire

I have known Rachel for many years now and can say without a doubt that I would not have chosen anyone else to help assist me with writing my application for the Marketing Derby Rising Star award.

She helped me feel at ease, and took away the fear and doubt I had about writing an application about myself and business. She made the process extremely easy for me.  She really knows how go get out the words, you just can’t seem to articulate yourself.

And thanks to her amazing writing skills I won the award!

Rachel has given me the confidence that anything is possible with a well written application.

The Fit

Rachel helped me with the start up of my business. I had no previous business experience so a lot of the information I was given prior to Rachel was confusing. However, she was able to explain each aspect of the roles I was expected to do, approaching each situation in a friendly, professional manner, offering advice when needed.
