Public Speaking & Awards
I've spoken at a number of events on digital marketing over the years and been a part of award winning teams.
If you have an event where digital expertise is needed, let me help!
I was incredibly happy to be named as one of Management Today's 35 women under 35 in 2023.
I was amongst some incredibly talented women and gained my place due to my dedication to my role within marketing both as a freelancer and with my role at a small marketing agency for other agencies.
The judges commented; "Rachel Baines is a truly inspirational figure in the world of digital marketing. As the founder of Baines-Moore Digital Marketing and Head of Strategy at Chime Agency, she has shown a remarkable talent for building successful businesses that deliver real value to their clients."
I was shocked and honoured to win the IPSE New Freelancer of the Year Award in November 2022.
I was up against some really great competition but the judges commented that I won due to growing a "truly impressive portfolio by helping other small businesses thrive. Her passion for freelancing was obvious and her achievements on behalf of diverse clients was evident".

This was for my work as a consultant and as a digital leader within my corporate role prior to my freelance career.
