Rachel Thornton.

Co-founder and director

Rachel was on the ground floor as a co-founder, back when the consultancy specialised solely in IC and engagement. Currently co-owner and director, she leads our consultancy team, co-manages the business and consults at a strategic level. She’s also a skilled facilitator and executive coach.

Rachel started out as a business journalist before choosing to pursue a career in internal communications. She progressed to become head of IC for two huge names and has been making waves in the industry for more than 22 years.

“I’m incredibly results-driven, optimistic and have a lot of energy. I’m curious and ask the hard questions that change or accelerate thinking and achieve outcomes.”
