Hi, I’m Clare! Thanks for dropping by.
If you’ve found your way here, you likely share our passion for creating workplace environments where your people can grow and thrive, rather than tread water to survive. What has become explicitly obvious in this uncertain and ever-changing business landscape is that burnout and stress is rife and we must shift the paradigm. We have to future-proof our workplaces by supporting our leaders to be healthy, high performing and a more luminous version of themselves.
Our passion for luminating leaders begins with my own story. The seeds of Clarety were sown back when I was one of those people just ‘surviving’. My whole focus was on driving business success and meeting the needs of others and I became disenfranchised in my life and stuck on the ‘hamster wheel’, my health suffered, my confidence dropped and the lights went out. I saw many people around me feeling the same way. Un-inspired, not-engaged and ultimately, leaving corporate life.
Forced into a period of rest and reflection I started to question the way I was leading my life. It stirred something inside me. I began to think, ‘What if life and business doesn’t have to be this way?’. ‘What if I could put my own personal wellbeing first and turn the light’s back on?’ ‘What if operating from a more energized place can deliver stronger results in business?’.
In the 8 year’s that have followed I learnt everything I could about wellbeing, mindfulness, coaching psychology, conscious capitalism, and Neuro-linguistic Programming and, with the help of a wonderful team of specialists, set about proving that shifting the paradigm of burn out is possible. We’ve now experienced first-hand, as have 1,000s of our clients, that by taking a more holistic approach to leadership development, it’s possible to luminate leaders to light up their organisations.

In the short time I've been in the program I already feel stronger sense of confidence. Speaking with Clare solidified what I already knew I was capable of and delivering on a day-to-day basis, she helped me unlock that belief in myself.
I celebrate the fact that I have been truly committed to my growth and have learned so much about myself from my values, my strengths, my core needs, and my limiting beliefs. I feel so much clearer about my future vision from when I started at the beginning of the program and most importantly, I know how I am going to get there! I loved every part of the program - the intimacy in the group size, Clare's consistent communication and check-ins on the WhatsApp group, the amazing content (and additional takeaway content), how much I learned about myself, and finally how much I learned from the other amazing, diverse people on the course.
This course is a disruptor in the best way possible! In jus a short time it has changed me not only personally, but professionally, which for me is phenomenal. I'm definitely still at the agency because of this program and now I'm stepping into a Global role.
Categorically the best Leadership course I have participated in!
Before joining LL program, I felt 'unmotivated','Stuck', 'victim mode'. The program has guided the light back into my everyday work and personal life. I am able to recognize the thought process and decision patterns and can switch my mindset. I feel that I am more proactive at work and I have a clear goal for what I am trying to achieve. In my personal life, I have been able to switch off and enjoy what today brings. Clare was able to show me the way and helped me with the work, which I should have done many years ago.
Clare's coaching abilities are second to none. Her manner is friendly and caring, whilst being objective and tapping into her business & life experience to help guide you through your goal setting. Her recommendations are well thought out and you leave the session feeling empowered and encouraged.
Clare has helped me chart a course through a real haze of uncertainty and fear, to absolute clarity, confidence and empowerment. She balances deep instinct, common sense, empathy and commercial reality to be able to provide a guiding hand that literally changed my life.
I tremendously enjoy working with Clare and her team. During a recent project, she was invaluable and truly instrumental in supporting us with her knowledge of the Australian advertising agency landscape. By bringing an external view and facilitating workshops and creative reviews with a wide variety of stakeholders, Clare was able to help us achieve a great result and do so in a collaborative manner. Clare's team also kept us on a tight timeframe, creating clarity around outcomes and key milestones and helping us to make informed decisions at the crucial points. If you have a strategic project that requires a high level of engagement with people inside and / or outside your business then Clare's strategic and 'coaching-style' approach will get you results. Thanks from all of us, Clare!
I didn't think it would be a good idea for Clare to coach me. We'd worked together and I thought we'd be too close or mess up a friendship. I couldn't have been more wrong. She is the perfect fusion of warm but firm, empathetic yet strong. She has an eclectic background and draws on wider experience than just her superb coaching/wellbeing technical knowledge. I am in such a good place. Her doing.
When I first met Clare I wasn't sure what to expect. 2 years on I am very clear! Clare constantly asks great questions of me, genuinely listens and challenges my thinking. At the same time her highly personable, caring approach to what she does shines through. She not only gets results as a coach - she is a pleasure to spend time with. I can't recommend Clare highly enough.
At the forefront of wellness and high performance coaching, Clare is able to bring well-being into the workplace in an efficient and thoughtful way. Clare is a fantastic coach as she is able to help people take the necessary steps to prioritise their well-being, set boundaries and maximise their potential.
Clare became my coach when the career driven executive, mother and family juggle was unsustainable. Clare led me through an invaluable coaching journey to understand the clutter, chaos and busyness and to carve out career evolution focused on what mattered most to me in life. Her intellect, insights, experience and personal manner combine to deliver a powerful coaching experience with outcomes that will transform your life. She is a Master Coach.
Clare is one of those rare gems I have had the pleasure to partner with on delivering the WPPAUNZ Wellbeing programme. I have also worked with her as a senior women in leadership when she was in our agency world. She has been an incredible support to me personally and professionally in delivering our programme. She brings all of her brilliance, compassion, energy and wisdom to every initiative we deliver together to help our people take care of their wellbeing. She is incredibly passionate about changing our industry for the better. Not only is she an incredible strategist, she is a wise soul who has coached me and many of our leaders to show up as our best selves. There are people who come into your life that inspire you to be a better human and an even better leader. Clare is one of those people to me.
Clare is a fantastic speaker who talks from the heart. She shares honestly and openly about the challenges of being a corporate leader who is striving to climb the career ladder, at the expense of her personal health & relationships. Her words hold lessons for us all. Her talks always bring with them both poignant messages and practical tools and frameworks that can work with your team's mental health, wellbeing or challenging their thinking about what it takes to lead in today’s increasingly complex world. I would highly recommend Clare to bring an entertaining, interactive and inspirational talk into your team learning sessions or off-sites.
What I loved about Clare was her holistic approach to career development. She very much sees a connection between your values, relationships, mental and physical well-being, passions, goals and vocation. Clare helped me distill what it was that I really wanted. Through various exercises, visualizations and and often uncomfortable conversations, we were able to hone in on what was most important for me in life and work - wanting to make a difference in the lives of others. Clare has a very kind, supportive and personable approach. She genuinely cares about her clients’ well-being, and really wants to see them thrive. Working with Clare has been invaluable for me in terms of getting clarity on the kind of leader I want to be, my values and my behaviors, and actionable tasks to bring into the everyday, to ensure you stay on track. I would recommend her without hesitation.
‘Is imposter syndrome leaving you paralysed’?
Fear. It’s one of the few emotions that can stop us, frozen in our tracks. Fear in the right situations makes sense. It helps keep us stay safe when things don’t seem quite right. It’s the gut feel that stops us from trusting someone, or that nags us to ask better...
