Downtown Birmingham are inviting you to an exclusive event with Downtown’s CEO; Frank McKenna who will be in conversation with Rachel Clacher on Thursday 3rd May 2018.

Rachel Clacher co-founded the award winning; Moneypenny with her brother and just £10,000 in the year 2000. Today, Moneypenny is the global leader in telephone answering and outsourced switchboard services, with offices in the US as well as the UK. Moneypenny’s team of over 500 annually handle in excess of 10 million calls on behalf of more than 10,000 companies. Her company is now listed in the Top 5 of ‘100 Best Companies to Work For in the UK’.

In 2014 Rachel brought Moneypenny’s unique approach to people development to a whole new cohort with the establishment of WeMindTheGap. This charity gives new opportunities in life and work to unemployed under-served young women through providing totally holistic paid trainee-ships. As well as filling the gaps in trainees’ lives the charity bridges the gap between the public and private sector to secure meaningful work experience, fabulous mentors, and experienced coaches.

Rachel’s mantras of ‘always treat others as you would like to be treated yourself’, ‘think big and act small’ and ‘recruit for attitude’ are proving as successful in her approach to building an important charity as they have been in building an award-winning business.

This is an event not to be missed, as Rachel shares her inspirational story. To register your interest please email:
