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. I create tailor-made learning experiences designed to elevate self-awareness, foster the development of professional skills, and inspire growth. Specialising in curating workshops for leadership, management, and teams, where I'm your guide, coach, and facilitator, helping to unlock potential and drive your business goals. Coming from a diverse background of creativity, tech/innovation and people-centricity over the last two decades, I have a unique ability to connect the dots and inspire innovative ideas that expand your imagination. 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 accelerating pace, continuous change and the opportunities this brings. Since the beginning of the global pandemic, I've taught over 6000 people about the topics I love; leadership and management, mindset, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, confidence, neuroscience, team dynamics, communication and careers. For speaking engagements: 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 over the last decade.
