Under Clare’s mentoring, my business has grown significantly and her guidance has been a big factor. I have gained confidence in my abilities, a focus for the business and a good friend.

Clare has a great way of questioning and querying my thought processes and my goals. If she feels that I am not being honest or true to my aims, then she will not hesitate to raise an objection and suggest a different pathway. She is incredibly insightful and sometimes knows me better than I know myself!
