I am a qualified mindset Coach, NLP Practitioner and Marine Debris Expert and can use these tools to help you to create meaningful change. I can deliver a range of talks and workshops for your event, your team or school and am happy to discuss bespoke needs.

An idea of sessions I can provide:

  • Motivational key note talks on career change, plastic pollution, adventures and living your best life.
  • Workshop to help you to find realistic sustainability solutions for you and your brand, together with take away goals to implement beyond the workshop
  • Interactive workshop with ideas for auditing your own waste, be it wasted time, physical waste or wasted potential.  
  • Interactive workshop with ideas for sustainability solutions within your team, company and community.  
  • Team building.

Past Talks and Events:


Clare both gave a keynote address and ran a workshop at the National Sea Scout Leaders Conference, which had volunteers from across the UK attending. She was engaging, confident and a pleasure to work with. The materials, tone and message were all appropriate to volunteers and she has sparked a fair amount of interest. Thanks Clare for a real help in making this an issue we can make a difference on.”  Richard Hunt, Organiser of National Sea Scout Leaders Conference.


We recently held our annual Lower Sixth Form Networking Dinner, where we invited local professionals across a plethora of industries to talk to our girls about their chosen careers and the opportunities available to them. This year we had the privilege of having Clare as our guest speaker. She spoke about her life journey from a Lawyer to a now Environmentalist, Explorer, Coach, Kayaker and Wellness Advocate. Clare was extremely insightful and spoke to the girls in a way that grabbed their attention and made them think about the decision that they will soon need to make when entering the world after Sixth Form. We would like to thank Clare for donating her time and inspiring our girls to think outside of the box.”  Burgess Hill Girls School

One Ocean Panel Discussion supported by KBR Engineering,  March 2019

A curriculum for young aspiring engineers to look at the way engineering can help with plastic pollution solutions.  A panel debate alongside:

  • David Jones  Underwater photojournalist, Cameraman, Diving Supervisor, Technical Media Diving Specialist and Founder and CEO of Just One Ocean.
  • Emily Penn, co-founder of ExXpeditions and international public speaker, also working with Parlay for the Oceans.

  • Ratih Astary, Second Secretary for Economic Affairs from The Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia.
  • David Cole – Senior Project Manager, Project Solutions, KBR.


Clare came to support our Recycle Week campaign at Quorn Foods by hosting a lunchtime workshop – sharing her amazing experiences, plus facts & figures about ocean plastics – drivers, impacts, solutions. All incredibly eye opening, fascinating and always focussing on the positives rather than feeling like a lecture or telling off. Fully recommend – thank you Clare, you truly are an inspiration!”.   Louise Needham, Quorn Foods.

Quorn Foods, North Yorkshire. September 2018.

I ran a series of workshops for their Recycle Week.  This included an interactive quiz and, as you can see from the image, Ocean Sole creatures.  Quorn ordered a bespoke flip flop Q for their reception.

World Travel Market, Excel London. November 2018.

I joined the Incredible Oceans team to talk to the tourist industry about plastic pollution solutions.  I made this short vlog about my experience.

Yestival, Brinsbury Campus. October 2018.

I delivered a talk / workshop at the festival about ‘How to Adventure with Less Waste’.

SSE Enterprise Utilities, Shoreham-By-Sea. September 2018.


Clare helped a team from SSE Enterprise Utilities pick up rubbish on Shoreham Beach.  She gave us some top tips, helped us with safety and inspired us to put our back into it. It has changed a lot of attitudes at SSE and we are planning a couple more rubbish collecting events now across GB. Really inspirational! Well done Clare and many thanks for your help!”.   Neil Turner, SSE Enterprise Utilities.

World Travel Market, Excel London. November 2017.

Along with Incredible Oceans, we took some of the waste from Paddle Pickup to encourage tourist boards and travel leaders from around the world to think about solutions to ocean plastic.

#PlasticActionBasecamp, Brighton. May 2018.


Clare came to Malago WI to tell us about her amazing kayaking trips, the huge problem of plastic pollution and how we could all do our bit to help. It was a truly inspiring evening with lots of great ideas for us all to try. We all went home promising ourselves that we’d do more to reduce our plastic waste (but not beat ourselves up for the occasional transgression)”.   Lucy Culliford, Malago WI.

Steppes Beyond Festival, Royal Geographical Society, London. September 2017.

I attended with Incredible Oceans and the rubbish that I picked up out of the water ways on Paddle Pickup Coast to Coast.  Taking bags of stinky river rubbish to such a prestigious venue was definitely a first for me!  See My Adventures page for more information about the expedition.

Malago Women's Institute, Bristol. June 2018
