About RSF Consultancy

About me


My name is Rachel Farmer.

I am British, UK-based and speak Russian fluently.

I have spent 35 years closely connected with Russia and the Russian-speaking countries of Eastern Europe, the Baltics and Central Asia. More recently, over the past 10 years, I have expanded my work into a wider range of countries, as well as developing my skills and qualifications in the UK.

I learned Russian at school and started my career as a teacher of Russian in schools, colleges and for 12 years at the University of Nottingham. During this time I wrote several “teach yourself” beginner’s courses for learners of Russian, which continue to achieve international sales success through several editions.

I then became attracted to the challenges of business, and moved into management of training organisations before setting up my own training, coaching and consultancy business in 2008.

The company is called RSF Consultancy after my initials (Rachel Selina Farmer) and services are usually delivered personally by me, supported by a team of carefully chosen associates and partners with complementary skills.

My training and consultancy business unites my passions for training, coaching, language and an international perspective, and I have had some wonderful experiences working with organisations to make a difference in the private, public and educational sectors in a dozen countries, to clients including SMEs, commercial, corporate, universities, FTSE100 and Fortune top 10 companies.

I look forward to hearing from you about working with you to add value to your organisation.
