This is what our clients say about working with us:

“Claire has enabled me, coached me and given me confidence throughout my journey as a senior leader, resulting in a promotion sooner than expected.

Claire’s style is supportive, questioning and she has the ability to summarise in such a way that it makes me feel listened too and understood. I have been able to apply this to my own team with some excellent results building a strong team around me. 

I highly recommend Claire to anyone, especially as a female in a male dominated environment.”

Head of Manufacturing, Stannah

“I have worked with Claire on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s flagship Women in Diplomacy project: a career development programme for female diplomats from the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Poland. I have been impressed by Claire’s ability to quickly grasp the learning needs of a diverse international cohort and to understand how her training fits in with the project’s wider objectives in a complex political environment. Claire has been responsive, flexible, open to challenge, enthusiastic and dedicated. It’s been a pleasure!”

She’s committed, highly qualified, experienced – and importantly, very committed to the benefits of positive psychology. I’ve enjoyed watching her be brave in her business and you will find a highly competent trainer and coach.”

Testimonials from Women in Leadership programme attendees:

“I began the course with a limit in my mind as to how far into my leadership journey I would be able to go- I guess I had a fixed idea of what I am capable of and what leadership actually means. I have learned a lot about myself and my colleagues and I feel that I have become more open-minded and less restricted in how I see my future. The delivery of this course is pitched in a way that allows both development on a personal level whilst also allowing learning from others, I also felt I was given the opportunity for self-realisation by being exposed to ideas and having some freedom in my thoughts. This is by far the best piece of CPD I have ever had and it has truly changed my life. Thank you so much Claire!” Donna H

“The course gave the space and time to consider my own goals, encouraging reflection on my own strengths and weaknesses and sharing ideas in a safe environment.” Hannah M

“Refreshing in every sense: A chance to reflect on the whats, whys, and hows of your career; done in an environment where you are supported and challenged. This course is like nothing else I have ever done – inspirational.” Kay T

“Great working with other women, loved the focus of the course as women have different barriers to progression, so this environment made it much easier to share and be honest, so outcomes were more realistic and actually helpful” Dipali P
