Happy clients

What clients say about how I helped them to successfully mange their people and create better organisations.

I worked with Rachel at Polka for several months as Project Manager to review all our HR policies and processes, and research implementing a new HR management system. Rachel was an absolute pleasure to work with. Despite only being with us for a short contract she fitted in swiftly with the team and brought a positive vibe at a challenging moment as covid-19 hit. She planned all our work efficiently and communicated with tact and empathy. I certainly hope to work with her again in the future. 
Rachel was a joy to work with, and she was every bit as fantastic as I remember her being when we worked together at the Almeida [Theatre]. She's conscientious and driven, with an eye for detail. Exactly what you need from a Project Manager. She worked alongside the Executive team and the Chair, and supported us through a period of transition, including a team restructure. Her HR knowledge was particularly useful here. I look forward to working with Rachel again in the future, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to colleagues.
Rachel supported me and the Talawa Theatre Company board and team as we reworked our constitution and articles of association. She was unfailingly positive, conscientious and diligent. I recommend her support whole heartedly.
Pursued by a Bear (PBAB) was fortunate to work with Rachel Barker on our first project in our new home in Hertfordshire. We couldn’t have hoped for a better project manager. Rachel was conscientious, hard-working, utterly committed and able to operate astutely yet with total affinity for artists and their processes. She is rare in being able to grasp and enact a creative vision whilst also being willing to ‘roll up her sleeves’ to fulfil the many small tasks required to deliver an artistic project successfully and within budget. We hope to work with her again and can heartily recommend her.
