Having worked with Rachel on the WeedSmart campaign, I can vouch for her ability to put together a strategic communications package that hits the target.
Rachel has the ability to understand the client and the audience, the issues of the day, the ideas and concepts that need to be communicated and she gets the job done on time and within budget guidelines.

One of the greatest challenges for all who conduct agricultural research is achieving the meaningful flow of relevant research and technology to end-users. Australian farmers, and those that advise them, operate in a tough biological and economic environment and access to good science and technology is crucial to success and sustainability.
We have good research in Australia and we must also have good communicators who harvest research results and distil them for agronomists, advisers and farmers.
I know Rachel Bowman to be skilled, committed and experienced in tapping good science knowledge and delivering relevant information to end-users, often agronomists and farmers.
