"Every leader should invest in a coach. I chose Rachel's executive 12 month coaching programme in Sept 2019. Rachel has supported me to find my unique leadership style, develop my team of 60 and challenges me to think bigger. 100% recommend Rachel to anyone who wants a pro".

Ria Apiata, Kiwirail National Protection Manager

"I'm inspired by the work Rise2025 does for Wāhine Māori like me. Through Mana Whakatōpū it gave me the confidence to step out of a secure job, align my skillset and passion to build capacity and capability within Māori organisations. I also founded Applause Charitable Trust, our response to support the wellbeing of our frontline kaimahi during the Covid pandemic"
