Speaking

I offer well-researched, engaging talks and workshop-style presentations for team days, conferences and networking events.

Here are some of my recent talks. You’ll notice they are all a little different because I work with event organisers to develop something that suits your event perfectly.

This talk helped the for-purpose organisation I founded secure a partnership to implement an innovative pain care model in regional Western Australia.

Local Government Professionals Women’s Summit 2017
Finding Your Voice
A session for women to find their voice in the workplace. Drawing on history, women investigate why they don’t speak up at work, what’s worth speaking up for, and how to get out of their own way. 90 minutes of storytelling, play and reflection for 120 delegates.

“Rachael’s Finding Your Voice workshop added an enjoyable, engaging and fun way to present on a topic instead of the usual death by Powerpoint.  I loved it, and would 100% definitely recommend Rachael.”
