In addition to her consultancy, today Rachel is bringing her strategies to life for herself through STORY, a new physical retail marketing experience in the heart of Chelsea in New York City. Rachel has been named one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business for 2012 and has become a sought after speaker covering topics ranging from curation to storytelling and new business models; most recently, she spoke at the annual PSFK conference and C2C Montreal as one of the selected individuals to represent the Fast Company creative list.
