"Clare is an excellent coach. She knows how to adapt sessions and topics to the needs of the moment while making progress towards agreed upon goals. Her experience makes all the difference. The program was very well structured and quite flexible. It has been a tremendous help on a variety of subjects. Clare is by far the best coach I have worked with."

Regional CTO, FinTech

"Clare is a truly exceptional coach. Her insight into team interaction and individual development areas, as well as her ability to develop people with constructive and targeted feedback, are unparalleled in my experience. "

Managing Director, Global Investment Bank

"I’ve really enjoyed working with Clare. This was my first experience of working with a coach and it has been far more effective than I was expecting. Clare really helped me identify and act on some of the challenges I face in my role. The most valuable part was having someone to openly discuss work and career with without judgement or bias. Clare was great at picking up on specific things that I needed help with and providing the tools to tackle them. "

Regional Head, High Frequency Trading and Technology Company

"I have thoroughly enjoyed every coaching session with Clare and feel enormously grateful for the opportunity to have spent some high quality time on myself, and my future, for a change. Clare has given me the confidence to challenge, experiment and demonstrate an increased level of self-belief. I only wish I had had the opportunity to meet Clare earlier in my career."

Global Banking and Markets Executive, Global Investment Bank

"Working with Clare has been a game changer. She has both guided and challenged me to look at how I operate and the changes I will need to make to succeed at the next level. I truly appreciate her style – a fantastic combination of warmth, humour, intellect and direct challenge where needed. I’ve extended my sessions twice. Says it all!"

Global Audit Lead, Global Investment Bank

"The coaching has been an extremely important part of my on-going development. The coach provided valuable insights and a different perspective. It has given me the opportunity to practice conversations and be challenged about my ideas and beliefs."
