Rachel Sinha #systemschange 

I am a British, award-winning social innovator, with 10 years experience working in social change.

My passion is to help people who want to change things, but have become uninspired and frankly, a bit stuck. I bring creativity, energy and fun to their lives, designing workshops and projects that build camaraderie and get things moving in the direction of positive, systemic change.

My experience 

I am one of four co-founders of The Finance Innovation Lab in the UK, launched post-financial crisis to ’empower positive disruptors in the financial system’. I built the project, named by the Guardian newspaper as one of 50 Radicals- ‘changing the face of the UK for the better’, from an idea, to an independent fully funded not-for-profit.

I am also a co-founder of The Point People, a collective of innovators, artists, and entrepreneurs committed to driving systemic change for a more equitable society (and who also happen to be smart, sassy and downright fascinating women).

Things I am good at (if I do say so myself):

  • Designing and facilitating fun, insightful, inspiring workshops that meet objectives
  • Building thriving networks of people who want the same thing, but come from different worlds
  • Mapping fields of practice, spotting gaps, identifying groundswells of innovation and writing about the most interesting themes (in HBR, Fast Company, Forbes etc)
  • Starting up new projects and organization’s (AuditFutures, The Natural Capital Coalition, The Finance Innovation Lab)

I am married to Pratik, a Dr/Scientist who believes if you can’t measure it, it doesn’t matter. We have lots of conversations about that.

We have two babies growing up fast, Indali (3) and Koshin (16 months).
