What teachers have said: "I have enormous respect for who you are and the way you manage the team, and have learnt so much from working with you. Most importantly for me is I trust you and like you as a person" (unsolicited email, 2017).
What Industry have said: “It was a pleasure meeting you...Rachael. Definitely helped us manage expectations... and we look forward to working with you and the team in the future" (unsolicited email, 2016).
What students have said: “Really enjoyed getting to know Rach. She was excellent in terms of her emphasis on inclusiveness, as it turned out to be essential due to the differing ages in the cohort. She had a good sense of humour, which I appreciated very much, and was very receptive to any inquiries. Thanks Rach!" (Teaching and learning evaluation report, 2015, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia).
What others have said: "It was such a pleasure to have you with us...Meeting you has really inspired me to both up the ante with regards to my teaching - as well as research. I've never been more inspired..." (unsolicited email, 2017, University of Southern Queensland, Australia).
Rachael is available for national (Australia) and International consulting work, including key note invitations, curriculum review processes, facilitating practicum-based workshops and to provide research & mentoring advice and recommendations.
INITIAL CONSULT: The initial consultation usually runs about 30-45 minutes and is offered at a fee that ranges from $150-$300 (AUS).
Before a consultation fee is arranged, I ensure that I meet with clients to understand what their requirements are and how I can best assist. It also provides the chance to discuss my services in detail and the different ways I work with clients.
1. Consulting fees are usually calculated at a per-hour/day rate.
2. When required, air flight travel that is non-stop for more than 6 hours (i.e. long-haul international travel) will incur business class return air flight costs (and, in addition to the consulting fee).
3. All other travel is via the most direct and economically affordable price.
4. Where appropriate, accommodation costs are in addition to the consulting fee and travel costs, when required.
