“I can highly recommend Clare to people as your personal executive coach. All leaders in whatever capacity, and especially when leading through change, benefit from the support given by highly skilled & experienced coaches. Clare is fantastic – and brings a wealth of career experience and skill. Every senior leader should have her in their armoury.”

Jane Eckford, NED, Coach, Public Servant

“Without the coaching I’ve received from Clare, I shudder to think where I’d be now. Our journey started late 2018. Through Clare’s questioning and exploration, I have taken myself through the boundaries of my comfort zone to stand up and speak, to co-found a tech start up, to become an executive coach, to be a Director of two boutique consultancies, to add value to many people’s lives. Clare continues to be my coach, and will probably never stop being so. Thank you Clare.”

Austin Merrett, Founder, Director, Speaker, Coach

“The coaching session by Alison was absolutely brilliant. Truly the best coaching session I have ever had despite previously being part of leadership programmes at blue chip corporates. Alison really delivered on the stated session objectives and through her deep knowledge, rich experience and caring about my results she went beyond even my expectations.”

Elham Fardad, CEO, Speaker, Diversity Pioneer

“Alison is a remarkable and perceptive coach who combines top-notch listening skills with deep insight. I’ve been very impressed with the balance that she is always able to maintain between challenge and encouragement. We first connected at a difficult time in my life, and working with her has been a critical factor in helping me to overcome those challenges, and then take my career up to the next level. If you have the opportunity to work with Alison, you should grab it with both hands – she certainly has my wholehearted recommendation.”

Ian Smith, Consultant, Design Thinker, Innovation Catalyst
