fantastic feedback

‘I am pleased to have used Claire’s services when I was Managing Director of Dzus Fasteners in the UK.  Claire work very effectively on strategy facilitation with myself and the senior management team, as well as on skills development with new intakes on the graduate programme.  Claire’s professional attitude, quick comprehension of complex situations, and intuitive perception of individuals motivations and concerns make her a valuable facilitator in strategic planning.  A calm, positive and engaging approach, plus her use of a variety of facilitation tools, meant that the management team were able to easily work together on identifying the key issues and creating a powerful strategy.’
Paul Sefton Managing Director IngPro Limited – UK

‘We worked with Claire, when she facilitated a team building session of a major technology project. Specifically we needed to identify any impediments to successfully completing the project and ensure that each team member bought into the set direction. Her professional manner and quiet confidence, with a successful ability to encourage engagement of all stakeholders, helped create an environment that lead to constructive discussion and debate. I would highly recommend Claire’s services.’

‘We have found Claire’s knowledge and extensive experience of business strategy development and communication of that strategy to the organisation particularly useful. She has the ability to help guide the strategy development process, as well as to know when to move it along. Claire relates well to people at a middle, senior and executive Management level and has helped ensure that great ideas generated at every level are eventually found in the plan. She has introduced us to new and innovating ways of communicating our strategy which has ensured that our organisation understands what we are trying to achieve.’

‘It was clear, from the first meeting we had with her, that she was not only knowledgeable, flexible and skilled, but she clearly had our organisation’s best interest at heart. Claire managed to effectively and efficiently facilitate and have us walk out of the workshop with having achieved our initial goal. Her prompt and overwhelming dedication ensured that our outcomes were reflected, noted and presented back to our timeously. We are thrilled to have worked with such a professional, skilled and engaging person and would highly recommend Claire.’

‘Claire is able to get the best out of a diverse group of people in the most charming way – with the calm authority needed to keep to the Agenda to ensure maximum benefit. She has encouraged the engagement of stakeholders (Board members, key strategic partners and other industry players). Using an outside facilitator has allowed the Board members to focus on content under discussion. I would highly recommend Claire – her work for PETCO has been excellent and she has added a great deal of value to our organisation.’

‘Claire’s flair for identifying the underlying needs and then producing a programme to meet the needs, her easy communication style, her skill in adapting methods to best suit our requirements and culture of our organisation and her complete frankness with us at all times have ensured that we have no hesitation in continuing to call on Claire’s services.’
Denis Kaye CEO Metro Movers

‘When I met Claire for the first time for a briefing, she immediately struck me as very professional and knowledgeable in her field, and I felt confident that we had made the right decision to put our trust in her and her company, with this very important and tricky Change Management exercise. Claire was able to pull the “real issues” out of the staff, so that we could plan how to address these and move forward. The Change Management programme had a very positive effect on the staff, as they felt they had been part of the process and came up with a number of solutions which we implemented shortly thereafter. I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire and her company and would definitely use her again.’
