Testimonials

>>

Rachel is a graphic facilitator with X Factor. She captures the very essence of our ATC Conferences and creates beautiful Infographics that our delegates love. The speakers at our conferences also all want copies of her pictures. Rachel makes you look good and adds to your brand. All this and she is also really easy to work with and works hard to get you great results. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

– Trevor Vas | Director | ATC Events

We recently reached out to Rachel to graphically facilitate our national training conference, comprising a mix of 800 person plenary sessions, 100 person seminars and 20 person workshops across a packed two days. It was a challenging timetable, with an enormous amount of content covering broad subject matter, and Rachel totally crushed it!
Rachel's work was a highlight of our conference and completely brought the stage and content to life. I am scared to think what our conference would have been without her work. Not only did Rachel provide a high-quality creative service, she was brilliant to work with. Rachel needed very little instruction to nail the brief, and she was very considerate and cooperative. What Rachel does is magic, and we can't recommend her highly enough!

– Emma McGarrity | Senior Organiser | GetUp!

Rachel is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to design, branding and marketing.
She has created our product branding and developed a number of superb designs for print and digital products. She is easy to work with and provides good direction and advice during the planning and design process which I value. I highly recommend her work.

– June Kitto | Director | Careerfit

We benefited from Rachel’s skills during our recent Grosvenor Place Management Planning Workshop. Her skills at visually recording the outcomes of that workshop also provided a fantastic visual record of the day's discussions. My team has revisited these slides frequently, and they provide a constant and appealing reminder of the day's  proceedings. I can strongly recommend Rachel’s services as a Visual Facilitator.

– John Derrick | Executive Director | Grosvenor Place

I was presenting a session on Deploying Google Apps at an AIS ICT Leadership Conference, and was thrilled when I saw Rachel walk in the room with a whiteboard! Rachel created a fabulous representation of what I was saying and easy for someone who wasn’t present to gain comprehension of my presentation. I have no idea how an artist like Rachel does this. She needs to listen intently to subject matter that is not within the realm of her normal life and come up with creative ways of representing these ideas. It’s no mean feat! If you’re looking for a great graphic facilitator to attend your conference and create lasting artefacts of a presenter’s words, then take a look at Rachel’s work. I’m sure you will agree that she is one very talented lady.

Rachel has provided a wide range of high quality creative services to us over many years. Rachel is highly creative and able to think outside the box. Her trademark is her ability to constantly deliver material that is always unique and always hits the mark. Rachel's creativity is matched by her commercial ability, meaning she is able to translate a brief into something practical and appealing, delivering on time and on budget. I would absolutely have no hesitation recommending Rachel to any organisation, large or small, who requires exceptional design work.

– Jonathan Ordman  |  Marketing Director  |  Wavelink Communciations

I recently contracted Rachel to graphically facilitate the Australian Institute of Management Board Strategy Day and...WOW...I’m glad I did. It made the day. Rachel is simply fantastic. She gets it. She was able to translate the discussions around vision, strategy and action plans into creative, visual and crucially, meaningful output. Instead of ending the day
with a stack of boring powerpoint slides or flipchart paper that would be consigned to the bin, we ended with visually stunning illustrations of our discussions.
This output gave life and meaning to our discussions, and it has become the reference material in the development of AIM’s future strategy. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Rachel and Swivel Creative. Throw away the flipchart. Get creative. It works!

– David Pich | CEO | Australian Institute of Management Membership | AIM Group

What an amazing experience I recently had working with Rachel across a two-day International conference for the Wharton Global Forum (an elite business University based
in Pennsylvania). Rachel was incredibly helpful from the get-go, taking the time to explain her services in detail, and coming up with solutions that suited my client’s brief and group. Across the two day event, Rachel exceeded expectations, scribing multiple panel discussions and keynote presentations, resulting in eleven incredible artworks. These creations became a talking and focal point throughout the conference, as we displayed them around the venue for guests to absorb during breaks. I was blown away by Rachel's work, and our
client couldn’t have been happier! The CEO of a major financial institution, who presented
at our forum, even requested to have his original scribed board to hang in his office. So, a
huge thanks for your amazing work Swivel Creative, we will definitely be using you again!

– Zoe Winner | Senior Event Manager | This Space Events

Rachel’s work as a graphic facilitator at our leadership summit was simply phenomenal. She managed to capture the essence of our two days of presentations and lively discussions in a remarkably insightful and engaging way. It was fascinating for our participants and speakers to see her at work and it helped them focus on the key points
of the sessions and supported active listening. Feedback from the attendees was exceptional, and we are particularly looking forward to sharing her vision boards
with the rest of our organisation. Rachel is a great artist and great to work with;
we would be delighted to work with her again at our future events.

 – Natalie Hayes | Strategic Projects Adviser | Laureate International Universities

Rachel has a fantastic ability to take a concept from inception through execution
and delivery, both as part of a team or when delivering independently. Combine this with her ability to deliver compelling, meaningful graphics in a number of mediums, and the fact that she's just a pleasure to work with, and you can't go wrong!
I would recommend Rachel and Swivel Creative  without hesitation.

– Sally Vanos | Lead Facilitator | Venture Manager | The Hub | SingTel Optus

Rachel is one of the best creative directors and hands-on designers I have worked with
in my many years as Area Marketing Manager. In my marketing role at British Airways I contracted Rachel to design our online and offline B2C and B2B marketing communications. She delivered on time, on budget and consistently excelled in her creative delivery. Rachel invariably surprised and delighted us at BA and we appreciated her expertise and flair greatly. Rachel is great to work with and interprets the brief swiftly and accurately.
I highly recommend her work and creative integrity to any organisation.

– Greg Tye | Asia-Pacific Area Marketing Manager | British Airways

Rachel's graphic facilitation contributions are not only insightful, they are beautiful.
She is able to capture the essence of  keynote presentations and workshops succinctly, and because she makes the visuals available so quickly after the event, delegates find them invaluable when they report back to colleagues.
Rachel is friendly, approachable, flexible and accommodating. Nothing seems to phase her. You know you're on a winner when the presenters themselves take selfies in front of Rachel's visuals ;)

– John Clear | ICT Education Consultant | Association of Independent Schools NSW

I was simply astounded at Rachel's ability to visually capture the richness and detail of a deep and fulfilling conversation with 11 strong personalities firing off comments and thoughts over two days. Whilst the value of Rachel's work was evident within
the first few minutes of her capturing a conversation, the real value became evident
when I was able to use the visuals to easily communicate to others the outcomes
of the workshop. Rachel was flexible, able to work quickly and efficiently, and delivered the final visuals the following day. Highly recommended for anyone
looking to capture an entire conversation at a glance.

– Nick Eakin | General Manager Regions  | Jawun

I have worked with a number of graphic facilitators, and Rachel is by far the best I have seen! She is able to 'hear' the conversation, identify the most salient points and cleverly represent them in a way that builds meaning for those who see her work. She is super easy to work with and is very flexible to accommodate changing needs. I would strongly recommend her for both in-workshop conversations and also helping to present complex concepts in a simple, visual and compelling way.

Rachel, just a note to say thank you for your brilliant graphic facilitation at the launch
of the Action on Obesity Collective at the Charles Perkins Centre. It was hugely impressive! You captured superbly not only the content of the discussion, but also the imaginations of the audience. The launch was seen as a watershed moment by the participants, who spanned all sectors of society, from academics to the private sector. Your work has become an important part of the history of this significant new movement and now appears on our archive of internal communications. Thank you!

– Prof. Stephen J. Simpson AC FAA FRS | Academic Director, Charles Perkins Centre, University of Sydney
 
Executive Director, Obesity Australia

 

Rachel, I want to say a big thank you on behalf of CiEvents and our client. Your work is outstanding! It was a very content heavy conference yet you were always smiling, kept up
with the pace and made it look so easy. Everyone was very impressed with your work, and your visuals have given our event longevity. You are a true professional: reliable, friendly and easy to work with, which makes our lives as producers a lot easier! We like to work with people we can count on and I very much look forward to working with you again. Until next time!
