Rachel Kirkwood: 

Leadership has formed an integral part of my career.  Early on, as a clinician, leading teams, I recognised how important team working was, so dependent on effective, visible and pragmatic leadership.  My experience developed though good coaching, mentoring, and targeted academic and experiential learning.  As a manager, leader and coach I take a positive ‘can do’ approach and believe this helps me as I work with, lead, support, motivate and develop others.
