Michelle Knight
Rachel shares that her work is led by her absolute passion to unite people in change, in education, and in doing work for the greater good. Her greatest achievement during 2015 was initiating, managing and running The Inter-Schools Rhino Sculpture Exhibition and event at The Waterfront, to raise awareness and funds for a truly worthy cause. The event cost totalled R1,5 million, all of which was generously sponsored in some way or another. Helen Zille and Beezy Bailey kindly agreed to open the event and we enjoyed spreading the news in interviews on KFM, Cape Talk and other media platforms. Prestigious guests from the conservation world and children from many different schools enjoyed a light hearted event at Workshop 17, with fabulous entertainment from the top troops from Madame Zingaras. A truly valuable and successful event that has on-going positive effects on our youth and conservation.

CLIENTS STORIES 2016
Helen Turnbull, CEO The Cape Leopard Trust: 'Rachel is a commensurate professional whose attention to detail is commendable. We valued the way Rachel was able to interpret our needs as a conservation NGO, and understood how everything we do has to align with our ethics and our philosophy. The ambience Rachel created at our Earth Day event was particularly inspiring, and was commented upon by our guests as being a night to remember. I think Rachel has found her niche, creating events for causes and brands close to her heart. She delivers with integrity and passion. We would definitely recommend her services.'
Trevor Tutu and the Desmond & Leah Foundation: "Underneath the outward persona of a serious and highly efficient organiser and determined achiever there lurks a wicked sense of humour, and an almost childlike sense of the ridiculous. Rachel makes the dreariest of tasks fun, and she is always seeking the opportunity to help her colleagues with their most mundane and boring duties. She is entirely selfless, and nothing is too much trouble for her to undertake in her persistent quest to help others. She is also constantly engaged in trying to achieve perfection. In short, she is the type of person any team would be better for having her in it."
'Rachel manages our annual charity event with unbelievable passion and professionalism. I highly recommend Rachel for PR & event management' Getty & Godfrey families and their private foundations
