but I happen to consider my role as an educator and public-speaker to be amongst the most important work I am privileged to do in this world.
It's here I get to teach people how to change their personal and working lives for the better, simply through the skill of learning how to tell themselves a better, truer, story.
My unique gift is the way I combine education with humour, true story, song and science in a way that is uniquely my own.
This "point of difference" is perhaps why, over the past five years, I (am humbled to) have become one of Australia's most highly-recommended, highly-booked public-speakers and educators.
The story of how I learnt this skills is highly almost co-incidental.
When I was twenty-five, I worked as the assistant for this absolute POWERHOUSE Female Leadership Expert called Fabian. I was a pretty average administrator, but, Fabian said, I was a "gifted communicator". As part of my training, she put me through all of her trainings on "High Level Leadership" and "Public Speaking". I was just a kid with a dream, being mentored then with some of the most powerful females in the Australian Business world. I was way out of my depth. But they took me under their wing and helped me translate my dreams into reality, step by step. It was their wisdom and chutzpah that helped me go on to build my own career - with independence, confidence, and a very clear idea of the value I bring to the people in my audiences.

FROM OFFICIAL BIO:
Clare's unique gift for public speaking is based on her ability to wrap her research/training in a warm cloak of humour and song and story, and as a result, she enjoys massive audience-buy-in, and excellent out-comes for her clients. Glowing testimonials abound.
Something to note though: Clare's style is absolutely not for everyone. She is certainly not your "average Corporate Speaker". As an entertainer, so too as an educator; she is flamboyant, unique, and cheeky (conservative companies looking for more "Power Point" need not apply).
Most of Clare's bookings comes from word-of-mouth, and the reason she gets invited back again and again is because she is a highly-skilled educator who cares deeply about changing her audience's lives for the better (by teaching them skills they can use in their real lives, inside and outside of work).
