Speaker Coach Rachael West


Rachael is a speaker coach and workshop facilitator with a twist.

As a TEDx Perth speaker coach for four years, Rachael coached two speakers to standing ovations. She has coached numerous executives and senior managers to deliver high impact conference talks, and prepared many new graduates for their first speaking appearance. She gave her own TEDx talk in 2017.

With first class honours in Civil Engineering and a circus performance qualification from Greentop Circus in Sheffield her method skilfully blends structure with play and intuition.

Rachael’s work is informed by ten years in WA’s engineering and public sectors and two years immersed in the UK social enterprise scene (including running a £1m business support program for emerging social entrepreneurs).

Rachael is also the founder of national social enterprise Yoga for Pain Care Australia. Rachael’s innovative approach to pain care earned her a finalist place in the 2017 Australian Learning Impact Professional Awards, and an invitation to speak at the 2016 International Pain Society Annual Summit.

As a young engineer, Rachael was the 2001 recipient of Engineers Australia’s Digby Leach Award and AWA Water Prize.  At the 2011 Engineers Without Borders Conference, Rachael’s opening handstand received a round of applause and she led more than 100 engineers through games that helped them discover the social impact they can make without leaving their day job.

Her other qualifications include a University Diploma in Yogic Education from the University of Lille, France, and Cert IV in Small Business Management.
