How we helped

About the organisation
SHEEGHRA is a new company with extraordinary potential through its patented RapidFlow technology to revolutionise the transportation by rail of goods and people. This is disruptive new technology at its best for the rail and very light railway industries and the organisation is already attracting early investors.

The challenge
SHEEGHRA and CEO founder Rohit Singhal is an American entrepreneur based in Silicon Valley, with a PhD from Texas A&M University in Computer Engineering and a bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering. He is the author of several academic publications and holds multiple patents. For this project, he was looking to team up with a highly regarded technical advisor who could bring expertise and experience of working with a national railway system.

The role of Penleaf
Penleaf has been able to support SHEEGHRA in two ways. Graham has been supporting the organisation in a technical advisory capacity, using his knowledge of railway and very light railway systems. Jenny used her editing skills to tailor SHEEGHRA’s communication and explanation of the new system to non-technical potential investors. 

 

What we do

Katie Parker, Community Partnerships Manager, Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Trust

'Jenny brings great insight and clarity to any project or programme she is working on. She is able to engage and collaborate across organisations and systems, and lead with clear values and integrity. An articulate communicator and a valued colleague, Jenny brings depth, knowledge, experience and most importantly compassion and humanity to everything she does.’

Peter Maynard, Practice Business Manager, Horfield Health Centre, Bristol

‘Jenny has the rare skill of being able to distil down difficult and complex matters into logical and succinct reports, so that I always feel I have enough information to allow me to question, debate and decide what to do. The fact she does all the above with good humour and grace is just the icing on the cake.’

Peter Gibbons Chief Security Officer, Network Rail

The ethics and values Graham brought to Network Rail represented a clear change to a more compassionate and engaged senior team, which really helped me develop our capability in my particular area of the business.

Siobahn Ritchie, Resourcing Business Partner, Network Rail

Graham is one of the most collaborative, authentic, approachable, and inspiring leaders I have met. I am grateful that I had the chance to work with him.

General Counsel

I have huge respect and admiration for Graham. Definitely the first time in my 12 years I found an exec to be completely approachable and treat everyone the same.
