More about Rachel:
I am a friendly, fun, caring person who is extremely passionate; if you ask people who know me, ‘what are the top 3 things you would say about Rachel?’, then passionate would be one of the first.
I live in Bournemouth, Dorset with my Husband, Sam, a little human called George, and a little furbaby called Rodney.
I grew up in Farnborough in Hampshire and lived in London too.
I have been lucky to travel a little and been to places like the US, Thailand, Spain and Italy.
I have a degree in Business Management from the University of Surrey and have since gone on to do a diploma in Events Management and an international course in Event & Wedding Planning.
I have worked in charities and love helping others. I have volunteered on various occasions throughout my life and am always happy to lend a helping hand to anyone who may need advice or guidance.
Fun Fact: “I like to make my birthdays or special occasions last as long as they possibly can, for my 30th birthday I had the record of making my birthday last for 4 months. When my husband turned 30 I tried to beat that and made his last for 6 months!”
Star Sign: Pisces
What businesses are saying about Rachel:
“Rachel is a hugely motivated events organiser whose passion and dynamic nature rubs off on her team. During the time I have known her she has assumed responsibility for a number of very different events, however for each she has been able to quickly understand its purpose and design something which fits the bill and meets the needs of the occasion. The event could be a formal dinner or a less formal event but Rachel is quickly able to identify the key areas of focus and provide solutions to respond to obstacles as they arise. Rachel is a pleasure to work with.”
Adam Mason, (at time, Senior Manager at Grant Thornton UK and local President at ICAEW)
“Rachel’s experience, guidance and insight is priceless.”
Josette Tucker, Surveyor, Hampshire County Council
“As this was an event spanning 4 professionals associations, this took immense planning, creativity and attention to detail. The event attracted 280 attendees and was a roaring success, much of which was due to Rachel's huge input into the project.”
Richard Dibden, Sales Director, CMA Recruitment Group
