My name is Rachel Morgan-Trimmer.
What I do
Massively overthink everything, and send passive-aggressive messages in WhatsApp groups.
Oh, you meant for work.
I’m a keynote speaker, author and entrepreneur. It sounds well fancy, but really it’s just talking and telling people I’ll get back to them, and then never getting back to them. I train companies on how to be inclusive to neurodiverse people (spoiler: it’s not that difficult or expensive – find out more about my training courses here).
Unusually for a neurodiversity consultant, my background is in communications which means I know a very lot about writing, editing, marketing and social media (except Clubhouse, not touching that one with a 10-foot-pole). I’m getting on a bit (46), which means I’ve had loads of experience in training and presenting, and I actually know how to help people.
What I’ve done
I’ve been shortlisted for 2 Roses Awards for a booklet and poster I made **UPDATE** and the poster won the Bronze award. You can have one if you want (a booklet or poster, not a Roses Award), just contact me and tell me where you live. That won’t be at all weird.
I’m one of very few neurodiversity consultants to be trained in public speaking and I have also had vocal coaching to improve my delivery. I set up the Neurodiversity Assocation last year.
I’ve got a 100% satisfaction rate when it comes to training – I can show you my evaluation forms if you ask nicely! Or you can just look at my LinkedIn recommendations.
What I am
I’m autistic and have ADHD. I am also mildly dyspraxic and have prosopagnosia (Google it). I was seriously mentally ill for ages, which was massively rubbish. But it does mean I understand the people I work with.
I’m also a mum, wife, middle-class person, intersectional feminist, and environmentalist. I like tea, Radio 3, John Lewis (the civil rights activist) and John Lewis (the department store). When the ADHD allows, I read many books on many topics. I wish I could play the harp.
If you’re not autistic you probably won’t get this bit, just scroll down to the social media links at the bottom.
