"The information she shared, including her own personal experiences, really helped to illustrate the diverse journeys that trans people go through and how people and businesses can be trans inclusive. We have received excellent feedback from our attendees, and many have commented on how they were put at ease by Rachel’s sense of humour, which helped them to understand the content, and that they have increased respect for trans people and their journeys". Elizabeth Kerry | Diversity and Wellbeing Manager, Hogan Lovells LLP
"I went to Rachel Reese/Global Butterflies because we very much wanted guidance regarding making our workplace more trans-inclusive. The whole experience was positive from start to finish. From the moment we first spoke to Rachel she was professional and very responsive. Importantly she focussed not on theory but real practical advice and key steps we could take quickly to move ourselves forwards. Rachel delivered an engaging talk to key people demonstrating her expertise and for us providing us with a much better understanding of what we need to do as an employer. The session was punchy, impactful and a catalyst for change. Global Butterflies are a real expert in the area of trans-inclusion." Claire England | Head of Diversity & Inclusivity, Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP

"As part of the Trowers Includes Programme on diversity issues, we invited Rachel to speak on the subject of transgender issue or simply trans as we now refer to it following her presentation. The aim of the series is to make the firm feel a more inclusive workplace, to increase tolerance and understanding and open our minds to how diversity and inclusivity are assets in the workplace. Rachel's presentation was very well attended and received and both informed, stimulated and educated our audience and the resultant feedback has been excellent. Her delivery style is polished, professional, relaxed and humorous and we were delighted with the whole event."
Paul Robinson | Director of Human Resources, Trowers & Hamlins LLP
"We loved working with Rachel on our gender identity workshop. As a trans individual she brings the kind of insight that no amount of technical expertise or legal excellence alone can deliver and as a professional she offered complete flexibility in adapting her contribution to fit in with our overview of what we wanted the workshop to achieve. Most important of all, she displays unfailing good humour and is reassuringly down to earth, giving people permission to ask questions and truly engage with the subject. The feedback we had from attendees (internal and external) was excellent." Deborah Dagleish | Head of Diversity & Inclusion, Ashurst LLP
