About Rebecca

Having a traditional Scottish childhood, growing up Rebecca learned you were only ever as good as the last thing you did. She spent years doubting herself and wasting precious energy worrying about not being good enough. The moment she started believing in herself, she put that energy into delivering instead – and the world changed! Her career took off and she moved quickly into senior leadership positions that allowed her to increase her impact exponentially – both on staff within the organization and the communities she served.

There is nothing Rebecca values more than unleashing this growth in others & seeing them grow their impact in the world.

Rebecca comes to Perception Insights with 25+ years experience of leading and managing people, teams and projects in the challenging world of government and public services. Her experience as deputy Chief Executive of a $400M 4000+ employee organization has given Rebecca the ability to see issues not only from strategic and operational perspectives, but also a deep understanding of the importance of people in delivering business success.

She is passionate about equipping people – and their businesses – with the skills they need to achieve the results they want.

About Perception Insights

We are a business development practice focused on performance, leadership & community. We believe that going it alone is rarely a good strategy – tough decisions & uncertain choices are much harder when we make them alone. Having someone else to support, guide, challenge & inspire us makes good business sense.
Through coaching, training & consultancy we equip leaders & entrepreneurs to realize the success they are striving for.
We don’t do boring or mundane. Our sessions are relevant, lively and to the point – but always with a bit of fun thrown in for good measure.

At the same time, we’re honest and practical. We take a real pride in giving value each and every time we deliver, making sure what we cover has been proven to work and gets results.

Our approach

  • is practical
  • encourages curious minds
  • is challenging & supportive in (almost!) equal measure
  • builds skill & resilience
  • develops accountability
