Workshop Testimonials
In the media

Originally one of her coach trainers at RCS in 2003, I was impressed by Rachel’s quick grasp of
coaching skills and techniques as well as her enthusiasm and determination to make it as a coach.
She showed great courage and self-belief when she decided to give up employed work and build up
her own business as a coach which is now thriving. I admire her warmth and infectious enthusiasm
coupled with a down-to-earth pragmatism that encourages her clients to move forward and reach
their goals. ​

Rachel has many talents and her broad range of expertise covers everything from one-to-one
coaching, group coaching, writing to running a variety of motivational workshops and last but not
least to making a substantial contribution to building a fabulous network of like-minded coaches
through her organisation of events such as Coach Connection and CoachFest.

Rachel is genuine, open, transparent, bold, and forward thinking: all elements one looks for in a
coach AND in a friend, colleague, advisor.

and systematic approach. Rachel is very knowledgeable with great attention to detail and has a bright
and warm personality, with a fabulous sense of humour.

Lyn PageTraining Programmes Manager, NeuroLeadership InstituteUK

Rachel is truly a delight to work with! She is very intuitive and fabulous at facilitating groups. Her 
openness and knowledge of the field of neuroscience allows Rachel to guide students using the 
best-practices to bring out the best in others, even under stressful situations. Rachel was my 
assistant trainer this last year while I undertook the Post Graduate Certificate in NeuroLeadership. 
She led our discussions and served as a resource to guide my new learning and, more importantly, 
helped me navigate school and work using her coaching skills and friendly, professional manner. I 
highly recommend Rachel to anyone looking to work with a fire-cracker of a leader! She has the 
unique traits of being very knowledgeable about leadership/coaching content AND the ability to really 
connect with the people she works with. A truly powerful package.

Wayne McNaughtOwner, Impact One LeadershipUSA

The most impressive thing about Rachel is her ability to handle cross cultural diversity. Rachel had to
deal with people from seven continents, often, at the same time. She has a true open mind and is
culturally sensitive: she proactively reaches out to people and willing helps them. Cultural diversity
management skills and great helping attitudes make Rachel a wonderful professional, and they are
core competencies of today’s leaders.

Rachel was a great facilitator, cheerful and calm, dedicated and passionate – all adjectives generally
hard to convey in a global virtual course! Her presence during the training made a great difference to
all students.

and supported. She is insightful, generous, approachable and of the highest integrity.

Lynn AndriesManaging Director, True ColoursSouth Africa

I’d like to acknowledge Rachel Bamber as Assistant Trainer to the Professor in the Neuroscience of
Leadership programme. The programme was very demanding and at times complex in dealing with
ever changing schedules, time zones, programme deliverables, and three platform changes. As
members of the pilot group, we benefited from Rachel’s ability to provide clear concise instruction,
skillful facilitation, engaging dialogue, warm welcomes and professional interactions each week.
Rachel communicated with enthusiasm to keep us moving forward as she was organised and always
showed her passion to support us and the program with authenticity. Rachel is as genuine a coach,
trainer and friend as you’ll find. I highly recommend her without hesitation to anyone seeking her

Ken BuchSenior Consultant, Management ConceptsUSA

open to listening to different points of view and to consider them. It was very enjoyable working with

Céline McKeownAssociate Brand Strategy Consultant, NeoSussex

I would like to acknowledge Rachel for her rare and significant Talent in the Coaching and Talent
Management field. I learned to know Rachel as a top notch professional with a warm, enthusiastic,
caring and inspirational way to instruct, facilitate and engage me and my fellow students in becoming
great coaches. In addition to this very human and supportive approach in her role as instructor,
facilitator, trainer and assessor, Rachel was challenging us to become better, learn more and aim
higher throughout the whole learning process. ​
Her approach was to both provide profound support, but at the same time stretch you to reach your
full potential, which makes Rachel one of the best trainers, facilitators and assessors I have ever had
the opportunity to work with during my 20 + years working in the Learning and Development &
Talent Management field.

as a coach.

Ian AdkinsFutures by DesignWiltshire

I have seldom experienced as much energy, focus and courage in any other person, as there is
in Rachel. This together with her deep knowledge of how to use your brain at its best, and her
supportive, yet challenging style, makes her a great Mentor, excellent Lead Trainer and a
truly precious Coach Assessor.

Månna GodenhjelmHRM PartnersFinland

Rachel is an inspirational individual. Rachel’s energy, drive and commitment to her chosen
profession is evident in the way that she truly gives 110%+ to everything that she does. What I loved
about having Rachel as a Trainer, and most importantly as an example to follow as a coach, was the
fact that she is so authentically herself. Rachel’s generosity in connecting with others and sharing her
knowledge and experience is a gift that I continue to benefit from.

Heidi WalkerHR Director, Financial ServicesUSA

Rachel is a great trainer whose enthusiasm for her work is evident. She puts complex ideas across in
a way that makes them easy to understand and can make even the shyest of delegates feel
comfortable. She is very engaging and I look forward to attending more courses with her.

Paula JonesManaging Director, Sixth LevelYorkshire, UK

Rachel was an outstanding trainer – organised, helpful and hugely resourceful. She made 
what was a challenging learning process at times so much smoother – and her great sense of humour 
was an added bonus.

Wendi GramantikPrincipal, NOESIS Learning Inc, Canada

Rachel is a fantastic facilitator. She has great presence and I learned a lot from her professional
practice. She is understanding of mistakes and is patient with learners. I highly recommend her to
anyone interested in coaching, particularly in business. She really is inspirational in coaching.

Alastair ArnottTeacher in Charge of Drama, Heartlands AcademyBirmingham

I can’t stop thinking of the intuitive coaching course that you held in Dubai, April 2012. It was by far
the best coaching training I have had.

Delel ChaabouniBIS Solutions DirectorMiddle East & Africa PepsiCo, Inc., Dubai

I recommend Rachel for her exceptional professionalism and warm words of encouragement. I was 
impressed by her capacity to (teach me to) coach a client with purpose and respect.
Rachel is close to her students which is a model I want to follow. Rachel taught me, just by 
being herself, to be “natural” and “relevant” in my acknowledgments of my coachees’ progress. Her 
warmth and authentic support added a caring, female touch to the course that made me feel safe 
as a student. It is contagious!

Dr Steven PoelmansLeadership Professor, IESE Business School
University of Navarra, Spain

Rachel’s contributions and her engagement have been outstanding. Her understanding of Neuroscience, 
her team coaching and training capabilities as well as her personal engagement brought the programme 
to another level. I can strongly recommend Rachel as coach and trainer.
