Mark Freeman – Interim Chief Executive Officer – CCVS

“As CCVS CEO we have worked directly and indirectly with Rachel on a number of projects, we have also benefited from her contacts with local businesses and have seen CCVS members benefit from her support. Rachel is probably the most effective networker that I have ever met. She has been working tirelessly on bringing the Cambridgeshire business and charity sectors together. I have seen numerous occasions when Rachel has been able to broker small acts that can have a real impact on a #SmallCharity. I think that there is a significantly better understanding between business and charity thanks to Rachel’s work. I know that we will be working with her moving into the future.”


Sharon Livermore – Director Kameo Recruitment Ltd

“Rachel is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Right from the start, it was clear that she is passionate about her work and is extremely knowledgeable. Nothing is too much trouble and being able to turn to Rachel for advice was crucial for me, being a start up business. Rachel took the time to understand my needs, company culture and vision for my business. I am really enjoying working with Get Synergised and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.”

Kevin Appleton – Head of Business at Barons BMW and MINI Cambridge

“It is an absolute pleasure to work with, energetic with a genuine passion to make a difference in the community. Rachel is full of ideas, has a clear understanding of what she wants to achieve and the drive and commitment to make things happen, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her.”

Angela Painter, Chief Executive, Burrswood

“Rachel worked with our third sector organisation in a project manager capacity. Rachel is an inspirational character who immediately put people across our organisation and our external stakeholders at ease. She quickly built up collaborative and constructive relationships with significant people in both the corporate and health care sectors. She engaged individuals at all levels in organisations in a way that was both positive and results focused. Within a few months Rachel had produced a robust and comprehensive project plan ready for implementation. I highly recommend Rachel to any organisation, she is a true star!”


Adrian Spurrell, Executive Director, The Red Thread Partnership

“Rachel is brilliant. She’s open, listening, full of energy and makes things happen. She’s been helping us launch The Red Thread Fellowship in the Cambridge area and has been a real asset.
As a result I’ve had no hesitation in recommending to other businesses and charities I know and work with.”

Katie Muir Development Manager BuildAid

“Rachel provided us with a brilliant consultation session on how to approach and attract companies as part of our corporate fundraising strategy. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with companies and charities to help them build mutually beneficial relationships. She has a great eye for detail and is very skilled at listening to an organisation’s needs and ideas, tailoring her advice and skills to them. Thanks Rachel!”

Trevor Single Chief Executive at Family Matters Institute

“Rachel provided expert support and guidance in exploring opportunities for CSR and company sponsorship with our charity, Family Matters Institute and the DAD.info website providing advice and support for Dads. Rachel’s input, guidance and development of our company sponsorship strategy was highly valuable. Rachel is great to work with, a friendly but highly professional approach, and an excellent understanding and knowledge of matching charities with the CSR corporate market. Highly recommend Rachel!”
