Rebecca’s wealth of experience in illuminating people’s potential was founded in her career as an English and Drama teacher and middle manager, in an all boys’ inner-city high school where she spent an enjoyable 13 years. She learned firsthand that the key to unlocking potential, motivating and leading others was essentially matching the communication and learning style to the individual. Her genuine interest in people and deep fascination  in how they tick, inspired her to further her studies. She completed a Master’s Degree in Education with Leadership in 2012, followed by a certification in Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

On completion of her Master’s degree, Rebecca spent a sabbatical in New York where she acquired invaluable experience within top leadership and communication training industries. It was here she realised the strong correlation between the classroom and the boardroom.

Rebecca’s own quest for personal and professional growth encouraged her to shift gears to the private sector where she trains clients and teams of various capacities on leadership and communication, with the purpose of transforming company culture.

Combining her strong analytical skills with her exceptional social and people perception, Rebecca easily identifies the company’s unique strengths, needs and motivators, and subsequently tailors a programme to equip leaders and employees with a blend of tools to illuminate their own and others’ potentials, resulting in a happier and more engaged workforce.

As well as having accomplished a Bachelor and a Master’s Degree in Education, and Diplomas in Public Relations, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Speech & Drama, Rebecca is passionate about the value of informal education. Having travelled extensively across six continents, she is aware of the bigger picture and is global in her thinking. She is no stranger to diversity and views life-long learning as a passport to keeping abreast with change.

Her colourful repertoire of experiences and qualifications culminate in a unique, value-centred training experience with her humour lying at its heart.
