I’m Rachel Coldicutt. This is my blog.
At work, I’m a strategist. Currently, I run the Products and Services team at Doteveryone – working with a brilliant group of people to prototype new services. I also run a small consultancy called Clovis and Clovis – helping organisations to be better at the Internet.
I’m good at understanding difficult problems, spotting opportunities and getting multi-disciplinary teams to make interesting and useful things – whether that’s websites, products, content, or strategies for digital transformation and organisational change.
I’ve worked in the Internet for a long time, and have done lots of different kinds of jobs. In my last role I was a Strategy Director at Friday. And before that I spent a long time working in arts and media: I was a co-founder of Caper, Head of Digital Media at the Royal Opera House, project manager of a large-scale storytelling project at the V&A, Executive Producer at UKTV, Interactive Editor at Endemol and Teens Editor at the BBC. Before that I wrote the dictionary and made CD-roms.
Otherwise, I’m a book-reading, thing-making feminist with a weakness for side projects. I started and co-ran the influential cultural innovation programme Culture Hack and am co-founder of women’s speaker directory Articulate. Oh, and I have a stutter, which I don’t talk about very much, but I might write a blog post about it one day.
I also take a lot of photographs of my cats.
