Rachel Berdan.

IMPACT STORYTELLER. SOCIAL PURPOSE INTEGRATOR. COACH. Crafty Person.

Rachel is passionate about helping businesses find and articulate both their purpose and their impact, from change management communications to rally a team around a vision to core messaging and stories that build a brand. Rachel is particularly adept at working with founders and leadership teams, asking tough questions that lead to clarity and alignment, and shifting focus to orient around purpose and impact. Knowing that individual contributions matter, yet nothing of great significance is truly accomplished alone, Rachel has a knack for bringing the right people together and holding them accountable to achieve an aligned purpose.

A 2x Ironman and Certified Yoga Teacher, Rachel brings a balance of grit and compassion to everything she does. In her working style, it shows up as both direct communication and laser focus, as well as holding space for the people she works with to discover their own strength and break through the ceiling of what they thought possible (which she loves nothing more than to witness).
