About Claire

A qualified international executive coach, I work with senior people in business, and their teams, who need to innovate, enable change and strengthen personal leadership. I have more than 20 years experience in business, including as Executive Board Director, and am accredited by the Worldwide Association of Business Coaches.

In addition to my independent coaching practice, I work as an associate coach for Oxford’s Saïd Business School and for international consultancy iOpener. My client experience spans the corporate, public and not-for-profit sectors, including Rolls Royce and Royal Mail Group (through Saïd Business School), Nestle (through iOpener) and Oxford University and Oxfam. 

My commercial background is academic and scientific publishing, where I helped transform Blackwell into one of the largest, independent scientific publishers in the world. Progressing to the main board, I developed and led international teams across the US, Europe, Asia and Australia and was instrumental in shaping global acquisition and online strategies.

Thank you so much for the time we spent together. I found it hugely enjoyable but, most importantly, life-changing.
