Rachel Rice (1 March 2017)

Rachel Rice is the managing director of Veho Solutions, established in 2005 as an event logistics business. Rachel gave an unorthodox speech and was the first of the speakers to be without a PowerPoint. She used pre-prepared flash cards and brought a previous BBE student (also her son) along for assistance where necessary.

Rachel started the talk by giving a brief overview of the industry her business currently operates within. She described it as a driving agency providing chauffeurs to some of the most famous names in sport; including Rafael Nadal at the ATP World Tour Finals in London as well as some of the world’s top golfers at events such as the Ryder Cup 2014.

What was especially useful for the students to listen to was the way in which the business has evolved over time and the measures they have put in place as they have progressed. In a highly competitive industry, the business must function as efficiently as possible and this has meant that more recently they have made the transition online. This has included: uploading YouTube tutorials for their drivers; adopting a more effective online file system and online profiles for drivers. They are following in the footsteps of most businesses in the modern market, and hope this will give them the competitive advantage they need to secure and maintain their place in a fast-moving market.
