Clare’s History

Raised in the south, Clare has always had a passion for being outdoors and growing up horses and dogs were a girl’s best friend, which quickly saw Clare leave school and embark on an equestrian journey of caring for racehorses and soon running the equestrian onsite shop.

Customer care was always firmly in her heart, and with this she ignited her passion for marketing and design moving to a design and print company looking after post production and logistics. You could say that the marketing element, which is where she is a highly skilled professional, has always been a passion. After a short stint in being an operating practitioner in the hospital having come from a family of nursing professionals and doctors, she found her place in Vodafone business to business communications and solutions. Embarking on her professional marketing journey. This saw her move in 2004 to a self-employed appointment providing outsourced marketing services to several brands across the outdoor market.

In recent years Clare is owner and director of a successful marketing company providing fully outsourced digital marketing services across industries to both B2B and B2C clients.

From Clare as your coach

“As your coach, I will always listen to understand and not to respond. I commit to developing new skills to assist you in your coaching journey. I am always learning new ways to help you grow your business and overcome the challenges that you will face through start-up, scale-up and freedom, the part where you get to choose if you work in the business or let someone else run it for you.

I am passionate about helping people achieve their goals, but I am also uncompromising in commitment. If you say you will do something, please do it! You will always get support from me, you will get creativity, new ideas, and I will always encourage you to learn and grow. In return, I expect you to do it, take action, even if you only get halfway there, you’re halfway to somewhere, you’re not standing still.

My goal is to be the best coach you need at the time you need it. Not to be your number one friend, but I’ll be your number fan!”
