When I first incorporated seven years ago, I didn't know what to call my company. I thought "Cahoots Communications" sounded like a clever way to describe how I bring people together to deliver a great product at a fraction of the cost of large agencies. I am a strategist and a writer, and I know a TON of really talented independent production people. There is virtually no communications product that I can't bring to fruition.
Two very smart women who I know said, "Why don't you just brand yourself using your name? Why pretend to be someone who you're not?" In 2017, a client also brought to my attention that there are two other Cahoots Communications in existence.
So, after years of being Cahoots Communications, I've decided to rebrand myself using my name - Rachel Pinnington. I know there are a lot of communications strategists out there, but there's only one me.
Many say I should have been an investigative journalist. I'm curious and love figuring out the questions to ask to get the answers you need from people. Then, sit back and watch as the stories gain momentum. If I get to write those stories, all the better. I love to write - the pen has always been a trusted, loyal friend.
I'm committed to lifelong learning and self-improvement. The world moves fast and I think I do a pretty good job of keeping up. I have high expectations and always push for better, but I prioritize getting things done over perfection. With social media, communications is an iterative process anyway, and I love the journey.
My favourite quote is from Nelson Mandela. I keep it close by to remind me why I'm here.
"A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special."
