Businesses and other organisations:
Whatever the size of your business, I can help you identify your impacts and transition to a more sustainable model. Sustainability is so much more than clean energy and recycling (though these are important too!) there is also social sustainability, does your business model respect labour rights, interact with local communities, practice effective charitable giving? Navigating the complex and sometimes competing aspects of environmental and social sustainability can be confusing, The Liminality aims to offer guidance, support and expert knowledge to make the shift to a truly sustainable business as stress-free as possible.

Bespoke pricing arrangements for consultancy can be made including discounts for social enterprises and charities.
Education is key to give future generations the knowledge and skills to tackle the considerable global challenges ahead. A report from tech company Dell in 2017 estimates that 85% of jobs that could exist in 2030 haven’t been invented yet, however we know that many of these jobs will involve a wider understanding of the interdependency of humanity and the natural world. Depleting natural resources, climate breakdown and plastics pollution can be covered in age appropriate ways in order to introduce students to the positive actions they can take to drive change.
Whether you’re planning a one-off workshop or assembly, setting up an eco-club, looking to carry out a curriculum review or would like help with bigger projects such as solar installations or kitchen gardens, The Liminality can provide guidance, support and expert knowledge.
Individuals and community groups:
Whether you’re an influencer wanting to research brands or foresee ethical pitfalls before you commit to advertising or brand tie-ups, or if you’re running a community group trying to spread the word on hints and tips towards ‘greener’ living, The Liminality can organise training sessions, one-to-ones, or speak at your event. Lean on The Liminality for guidance and expertise when it comes to environmental and social issues close to your heart.
‘Myself and three friends recently opened a loose food and plastic free shop and Raechel was a huge help to us… with practical help lifting and moving but also advice on recycling and sustainability information. Our aim is to be a zero waste shop and her help and advice was invaluable- she set up a blog for us on social media and gave us umpteen invaluable links – such as how to apply for a charitable start-up grant ( which we got!). Her knowledge and experience of the sustainability field is vast – but she is also such a lovely person to work with.’
Founder, Foodloose and Plastic-Free shop
‘I approached Raechel in 2018 to be on a panel of expert speakers at an event I was planning called ‘Planet Friendly Parenting.’ She was absolutely fantastic to have on board not only as a speaker but she was a great help in the planning; gladly sharing her expertise and useful contacts. On the night she was informative, knowledgeable but most importantly didn’t convey the information or tips on how to live a more sustainable life in a preachy way. The takeaways that she gave attendees were achievable, practical and not overwhelming which ultimately is the key to any kind of sustainability! I hastily booked Raechel on to my podcast straight after the event as her talk was so well received I wanted to open it up to a wider audience. Once again she was brilliant and I really hope to work with Raechel on many future projects.’
Kate Starkey, Cheltenham Maman.
‘People enjoyed it so much and came away energised, enthusiastic and considerably more positive about what difference they can make themselves. So many people have sung your praises since: it was a really thought-provoking and positive evening. It was also one of the biggest talks we’ve ever hosted in terms of visitor numbers which was really pleasing for us. I thought the way you presented – and the array of visual stimulus and quotes rather than wordy PowerPoints – was incredibly effective too, and I’ve been trying to adopt some of that into my own work-related presentations.’
Hannah Hart, Gloucestershire Humanists
“Raechel contacted me to provide facilitation for the Cheltenham Zero 2030 event that she had been planning alongside Vision21 and Cheltenham Borough Council. She was instrumental in moving this event towards fruition, co-ordinating all the different parties involved and managing communications in a professional, dedicated and focused way. She was able to bring her extensive knowledge of the climate change and sustainability arena to shape the day, to include different speakers and media, and create the right wording for key questions and the participant agreement. I would not hesitate to work with her again, and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to create an event of this kind in the future”
