Strategic Speaker Coach Rachael West


As TEDx Perth speaker coach from 2011-15, Rachael coached two speakers to standing ovations. She has coached numerous executives and senior managers to deliver high impact conference talks and panel appearances, and prepared many new graduates for their first speaking appearance. Rachael gave her own TEDx talk in 2017.

Rachael’s work is informed by a varied background that includes more than 15 years leading strategic projects in engineering, social enterprise and health. Her qualifications include first class honours in Civil Engineering, Circus in Performance from Greentop Circus Sheffield and University Diploma in Yogic Education from the University of Lille, France.

Using a multi-layered approach that others often describe as holistic, Rachael is intent on helping you uncover what you uniquely offer that you can share through speech, and how each speaking opportunity can help your professional and business trajectory. She will help you to clarify and uncover your most important ideas, distil complex concepts into audience-friendly language – and find your unique, engaging delivery style.

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