'Rachel is very probing...she has great analytical and reasoning capability. She's good at making me think real hard which is sometimes uncomfortable as in my environment, you tend to have to think real fast, rather than real hard.'

'We beat our medals target in the Rio Olympic Games and I genuinely think coaching, helped make that happen. Because of working with you, I do what I do better. I go back to my team supercharged and it lasts....That's because you make it about the person - as if it's me doing the coaching. With you, there are no short cuts, no answers, no fast solutions - it's about reconnecting with what's important. It feels more like my journey then it ever has done - not a job.'
Para Cycling Coach, Team GB
'You helped me transition to a new Executive Management Board role, in a new country. I have grown in confidence, power and presence. You are a tremendous listener. You've never come up with the same solution or challenge twice. I so value your creativity and how that links to commercial themes and the business I am in.'
Marketing Director, ASDA WAL-MART
'You delivered great value for my current role, but also for my future leadership. We returned from Rio with a medal! We over-achieved in two events! My team delivered beyond expectations. I can backtrack most of the 'team feeling' to our chats about the importance of defining and delivering a tangible philosophy. I have your alternative, determined questioning in mind as I continue my career from here.'
Rio Olympics Badminton Coach, Team GB
