Rachel has been helping us market our business for the past few years, and her help is invaluable, both in steering our marketing efforts and in implementing our plans. We never have to ask her to do something twice; everything she writes and every task she carries out is done to an impeccable standard. It’s great to know that our marketing is in such great hands, and to have someone on the team who adds value to everything she does.
Since childhood, words, and the right use of language, have been a passion for Rachel. She has worked in several different areas of business and a common thread has always been words and the creation of content. Rachel believes that for her to write about our business, it’s really important to understand how it ticks. This philosophy, and the fact that she is a living embodiment of our company values, makes her a hugely valued member of our core team, and we trust her implicitly to write with our ‘voice’ and to help steer our thinking.
