Rachel’s purpose is to “Inspire and develop purposeful leaders who then RISE to empower many”. Her mission is to create a global business that brings coaching, leadership and entrepreneurship programmes to life in communities, corporations and across continents.
A dynamic corporate HR career coupled with commercial business sense and an internationally recognised coaching credential spans fourteen years and three countries - Aotearoa (New Zealand), United Kingdom and Middle East. Culture, corporations and communities are bought together in her strategies to empower leaders in business and society. Rachel’s strong indigenous Māori identity combined with global commercial know-how is what makes her unique.
“Coaching rising stars to unlock their hidden talent and shine on the world stage is what I get to do everyday. My business reflects my passion to develop leaders who live on purpose, aligned to their values, who bring their whole self to the world stage every day to serve others”.
Rachel developed her Talent Transformation Coaching Programme to work exclusively with rising stars who are 100% ready to take their career, business and life to the next level. "It's been 14 years of self-discovery, self-development and the realisation that everything I needed for my best life was within me. Coaching, great role models and continuous personal and professional development has taught me to trust myself and my tribe of global thinkers and doers. Now it’s my chance to give back to a global community and be of service to my perfect clients. Let me show you how”.
