Global companies invite Claire Lomas to be their motivational speaker to show the positive impact of a growth mindset, how to thrive and adapt to change and how to reach their full potential no matter what obstacles they may face. She leaves delegates with practical tools to help with life's challenges.
“I had not cried at all. I was being brave, although inside, I felt very scared; absolutely petrified. My body felt battered, well the bits I could feel did. The rest felt dead. Two-thirds of me was dead.”
This is a highly engaging story of triumph over adversity told with such honesty and humour.
Claire had to endure the darkest of days following a horse riding accident which left her paralysed from the chest down, shattering all her dreams and goals as well as losing her identity to eventually achieving the unimaginable.
Claire made worldwide headlines when she walked the London Marathon in 2012 using a robotic suit (taking 17 days). She has now raised over £850,000 for charity through various challenges for which she was awarded an MBE, rides motorbikes on track days, and has recently qualified as a pilot as well as being a mum to two girls. She is not content with just pushing the boundaries but prefers to be smashing them right out the way!
Why invite Claire Lomas to be your motivational speaker?
There are hundreds of motivational speakers to choose from but Claire can offer something that is truly unique and every delegate can relate to it in some way yet it is incredibly powerful.
She hasn't won an Olympic or Paralympic medal but if there was a medal for not just overcoming adversity but thriving through change then she would have one- and it would be gold.
Everyone will face unwanted changes throughout their lives and come up against obstacles which may feel like mountains; Claire shows you that your biggest asset is a positive mindset and she shares how you can develop this greatest attribute which will enable you to achieve far more. The right attitude gives you power over your circumstances rather than your circumstances having power over you.
She is a specialist at passing on these valuable lessons she has learned. Claire will not just be your motivational speaker for the duration she is on the stage but she wants to leave a lasting impression and help shape people's future.
How long are Claire's presentations?
As a motivational speaker, Claire's presentations are often around an hour long and can include a Q&A session. However, the length of Claire's presentation is flexible. Some after-dinner speaking slots are as short as twenty minutes and workshops may take half a day. Every organisation and event is different, so each of Claire's presentations are too. Claire will tailor her talk to fit in with your event.
Claire conveys her story so eloquently and movingly,
We hung off every word

Claire took our theme into consideration and referred to it numerous times in the delivery of her talk. Claire has an infectious positivity. We would definitely use Claire again when we are looking for motivational speakers and will be recommending her to others too
Always difficult to choose the right motivational speaker for any event but trying to capture the enthusiasm of, at times, jaded worn out health professionals is always a challenge. Claire woke us up with her energy and enthusiasm for meeting life head on. A truly inspiring story. Claire left an audience in awe and admiration. Thank you Claire
