About me
Proud to be one of The Dots Top 100 Rising Stars who is "transforming the industry of today, inspiring the generation of tomorrow and making history!" My value is to bring together innovation and creativity for people, teams and businesses to explore new possibilities with excitement, not fear. Coming from a diverse background of creativity, tech/innovation and people, I love to integrate these different perspectives and connect the dots innovatively to help you imagine beyond. It's from this unique position that I thoroughly enjoy collaborating and co-creating. As an accomplished leader and consultant, I've been fortunate to work with leaders of FTSE100, Fortune 500 companies, SMEs, and startups. As a result, I've seen and experienced first-hand the challenges of change and the opportunities it brings when you can think like an entrepreneur. Since the beginning of the global pandemic, I've taught over 5000 people about the topics I love; leadership, mindset, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, confidence, neuroscience, team dynamics, communication and careers. To discuss speaking engagements, email claire@imagine-beyond.co.uk. I believe in human potential and am motivated by creating impact and helping others achieve more than they thought possible, coaching and mentoring on various programmes over the last decade. ✨ Speaking engagements 2022: * Guest speaker at Kings College London, Women in Leadership.
