Rachael Smith has been an active member of WIBF for 4 years and became a volunteer in 2018 as Head of Individual Membership. Over the last 18 months, Rachael has worked continuously to bring together everything that WIBF does and make it even more accessible to our 1300 individual members and our 10,000 LinkedIn followers across the UK. She has run 3 membership engagement surveys to listen to what our members need, particularly through the current pandemic, and worked with all our committees across WIBF to ensure that we continue to add value for our members. So much of Rachael’s responsibilities at WIBF sit ‘behind the scenes’ but are instrumental in creating the opportunities for our members to maximise the benefits of their WIBF membership. We are delighted to be able to recognise Rachael’s efforts here.
Julia Smith, WIBF’s Director of Marketing & Partnerships said; “Rachael is a fantastic asset to WIBF and it’s members. She is a genuine team player, bringing creativity and passion to every project she is involved in, with a positive can-do attitude. Rachael is a pleasure to work with, reflected by the unanimous agreement for her nomination this month given her involvement in so many of WIBF’s key strategic committees.”
