I first met Rachel in February 2014 when she did a talk at Nixon McInnes. We met for coffee a few days later. And I joined her advisory board.

Mum was still alive then and, inspired by Rachel, I started taking pictures of art to show Mum. Mum couldn’t communicate by then, but even for me discussing an interpretation of the art was far less emotionally loaded than looking at photographs that Mum no longer recognised. It made conversation easier for me. Which in turn benefited Mum.

I was pleased to be in the audience of TEDxBrighton last October and see Rachel deliver this talk first hand. But if you missed it, it’s well worth the 13 minutes.
