Rachel Colenso's tales of survival in the most hostile environments, and her relentless pursuit of new heights to climb, literally and figuratively, have a lot of resonance in the business world. Whether the goal is to reach the peak of a mountain or the pinnacle of entrepreneurial accomplishment, the lessons Rachel puts forth apply just the same. The path to success in virtually any field comes down to a basic set of requirements: Determination, discipline, mental and physical fortitude and accepting nothing less than excellence. Rachel drives those points home from a very unique perspective. She is a powerful motivational speaker.
Thank you so much for the most amazing talk yesterday. We have had such positive feedback from our staff. All have thanked Ben and me in one way or other for bringing you to them (some by email, some in personal visits to our offices). Everyone was inspired and motivated by your presentation.
Rachel was excellent and definitely ‘hit the mark’ on the day. She was very engaging and captured the audience entirely with her story and managed to link it in very effectively with the messages we were trying to get across as part of the overall conference. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a guest speaker and she was also very good at networking with the audience at the dinner after the presentation. Very enjoyable company and an extremely interesting person.
What an amazing experience with you there! Nobody else could have reached our audience better than you. Your message was so incredibly personalised and truly touched hearts. I have received fabulous feedback and many complements regarding your presentation and for this I want to sincerely thank you. The quality that I appreciated the most about you (other than your amazing insight, humbleness, courage and passion for life), is the fact that you really took to heart what we discussed during our telecon and how you structured your presentation to optimise the reach to our people who find themselves in times of difficult change. You have left them behind with hope and a lasting impression.
There is absolutely no question that you “struck the right cord” with our audience and left them inspired, motivated and reflective of their own life, where perhaps they remain in the ruts of life's daily challenges that often drag them down. I spent a lot of time during your presentation looking at your audience where I could see that they were glued to your message of overcoming obstacles and your own personal journey of self development and growth. Seemingly in Cape Town, you even left some of our staff in tears of inspiration!
What first strikes you about Rachel Colenso are her sincerity and humility, qualities that are usually not so forthcoming in a person that has experienced and accomplished as much as she has. Her incredible story and her natural charisma in delivering it truly moved our audience. This was confirmed by the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received after the event. She came across as truly authentic and natural while taking absolute command of the stage. Rachel managed to raise the impact of the central message of our conference with a highly effective performance. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any kind of event of this nature.
Rachel Colenso is a fantastic guest speaker. She is a very impressive and extraordinary lady and she delivers 150%. The way she tells and presents her story is an inspirational breath of fresh air. Anybody that does not book Rachel is seriously missing a wonderful opportunity — and a big WOW!
Thanks to Rachel Colenso’s talent for storytelling, participants relived her climb to the top of the mountain. The anxiety, the wait, the fear and finally, the triumph of majestic nature. A palette of emotions that she beautifully transmitted to her audience.
