Here are some wise words from people I have had the pleasure of working with:
“Rebecca has been fundamental in helping me take the first step to making a vision become a reality. Her one-to-one coaching sessions helped me create an action plan and define how my business idea should ultimately progress. She showed me how to set achievable goals and definitely provided me with the opportunity to brainstorm and pick her brain. I would highly recommend creative careers coaching, I've found it to be so beneficial.”
Stephanie, Stylist & Image Consultant
“I arranged a face-to-face meeting and it was the best hour of coaching I have ever had. Rebecca is lovely, friendly and sympathetic. She takes time to listen to your concerns, without being critical or passing judgment. For me, it has re-ignited my desire in creative work, as well as providing a much needed confidence boost! I would recommend Rebecca to anyone who wants to follow a creative career or needs a friendly and understanding coach to talk to, who also has personal experience of the creative industries. She does not encourage false hope or expectations: what she does is provide a down-to-earth approach and real world understanding.”
Jane, Performance Artist & Copywriter
“My sessions have given me great confidence. I find having a coach as enthusiastic as Rebecca is productive to being able to realise a rational plan for progressing with my creativity. Remembering to have a direction for any creative endeavour, has allowed me to achieve a specific pathway for success. Permitting myself to step back enabled me to determine its value. A seed is definitely starting to grow and I look forward to working together again.”
Ken, Artist & Graphic Designer
“Attending the Creative Careers Coach session helped to reinforce my self-confidence and self-motivation. One of the unique elements was that it brought a creative, back-to-basics approach to identifying and planning my career goals.”
Houston, Graduate"Rebecca's one-to-one coaching sessions have been fantastic! I run a small video production company and Rebecca's sessions have proven to be incredibly helpful to me. She provided a positive environment for me to take a step back, evaluate my short and long term goals and set realistic targets for the future of my company. Not only is she a great motivator, but she also offers practical business support that can be easily actioned. Since I started the sessions with Rebecca my own productivity has increased dramatically and I now have effective systems in place to ensure the continued development of my creative business. I would strongly recommend Rebecca to any creative individual or business, as she offers a truly outstanding service."
Sam Lockyer, Director, Iconic Productions
"As The Creative Careers Coach, Rebecca enables young people to realise their creativity and open up alternative career pathways. As our Guest Speaker, at this year's Birmingham Final of the Young Enterprise Innovation Awards, Rebecca inspired all members of the audience and, this week, Rebecca helped Young Enterprise to launch a joint initiative with CBBC to find the best young traders in Britain...! Creative and inspiring, Rebecca delivers and is a joy to work with."
Bryan Foster, Young Enterprise
"What I found most useful is the fact that Rebecca understands the creative mind. I am now more positive and have the energy to make clear adjustments. I can see exactly what I wasn't doing and how to do something about it."
Rose, Fashion designer and photographer
"I have always been clear about what I want in life, but what I got from your session was how much it helped me to put everything into perspective. It allowed me to visualize how quickly I can actually go ahead and achieve these things. As a result it gave me a sense of relief and I am now more confident about my approach. It really made an impact on me. I would have liked it to carry on for longer!"
Michael, Filmmaker"The workshop has enabled me to focus on specific areas I can work on in order to achieve my ideal career. I found the goal setting section the most useful, as it provided me with some fresh ideas about how I can break into street fashion photography."
Ed, Teacher and Photographer
"The coaching I received from Rebecca has been invaluable. It began at a stage where my full-time employment had come to an end and I was unsure about my next steps. I had dreams of running my own business and still wanted to offer my services, in my own time, to disadvantaged young people. I needed to channel a lot of my career aspirations and creative ideas in the correct direction. Rebecca's sessions allowed me to set myself targets and develop successfully over a short period. I have now developed my own fashion business, receiving support from the Princes Trust and I am even in full-time employment at The University of Warwick. On top of that I volunteer for two a youth organisations! Attending coaching sessions has been one of the most positive and life-changing steps I have ever taken and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to fulfil their passions."
Janine Foster, Post Graduate Support Officer and Entrepreneur
"Rebecca is an inspiring and challenging coach. She understands how to listen, support you and build your confidence. This has really enabled me to grow and start to make bold and creative decisions about my career. She always creates an environment of trust that helps you to feel you can be yourself and really open up. After a session I feel enthusiastic and ready for anything."
Joanne Irvine, Museums and Heritage Consultant
"Being coached by Rebecca really gave me a space to think and talk about where I wanted to go in life. After each session I came away with fresh ideas and a clear mind, which helped me plan for my short and long term goals. I now feel fully prepared with the right tools and mindset to take my next steps."
Carl Knight, Lead Singer
"Rebecca has been one of the most inspirational people I have ever met. She has guided and encouraged me all the way through my project and has helped me to pursue my dream and passion to work in the creative industries. The mentoring provided has been nothing short of excellent and I since working with her, my confidence has skyrocketed. Her support led me to apply for the highly competitive ITV Runner Pool position, which I got! I now have paid work on some of the greatest prime time shows on television."
Kirsty Walker, TV Runner
"Rebecca offered great mentoring and supported me, which really helped when making important production decisions. Rebecca's happy and positive nature meant that I was engaged and excited about producing my documentary. It really helped me to develop skills in planning, organisation and filmmaking. It has helped me to progress in my filmmaking career and land a job at Pinewood Studios!"
Jaleesa Tonge, Freelance Motion Capture Technician, Centroid3d
"Rebecca joined First Light in 2006 and very quickly demonstrated excellent organisational and project management skills as part of a delivery team. Over the past year, Rebecca has taken on the sole responsibility of successfully managing a new project, bringing to this role her creative thinking and problem solving skills and ability to communicate brilliantly with both stakeholders and beneficiaries. Rebecca has enthusiasm, knowledge and commitment and has been a pleasure to work with."
Leigh Thomas, CEO, First Light

We would definitely work with her again."
