Communicating across audiences with
knowledge and passion
“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”
Claire is a confident and passionate speaker with the intent always to inform, educate and empower. From women in leadership to educational reform and culture shift, Claire takes her audience on a meaningful journey using words to explore and shift thoughts and ideas. It is always Claire’s intent and purpose to use knowledge and humour to discuss the tough-stuff of children, families and institutions, to challenge practices and to develop new ways of thinking feeling and behaving.
Training, sharing knowledge and doing so in meaningful, practical and engaging ways is what Claire brings to Conference Workshops. Claire has spoken nationally and internationally to a range of audiences and is a popular and requested speaker at many events.
Level-headed, informed, accessible and engaging commentary on all aspects of child and family life, education policy and reform and initiatives in the mental health space makes Claire a sought-after personality. Appearing on the Today Show, as Channel 9’s (Perth) and 882-6PR’s resident Parent Educator, Claire’s work also appears regularly in national newspapers and magazines.
