Government Internal Audit Agency,
"Claire was the motivational speaker at the Annual Conference of the NW Branch of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance & Accountancy (CIPFA)
Our theme was “Talent, Technology, Transformation” and Claire addressed all three in the most awe inspiring of ways.
Claire’s presentation was searingly honest and brutal in it's messages, which made it all the more impactful to listen to and she – quite literally – moved some of our audience to tears.
Her determination, drive and positive attitude was humbling, uplifting and inspirational. Listening to her certainly put the challenges that we face in the workplace as public finance professionals into context.
Thank you, Claire, for sharing your experiences with us – You are truly inspiring!"
Cairn Group, Richard Adams
"Claire attended our Leadership Conference and her delivery was fantastic. Overcoming adversity and accepting what you can’t control will always be relevant in business, as is the case more widely in life. Claire shared her story with honesty and humour . She was an inspiration to everyone in the room. We had so many great comments from our managers and Claire really helped set the tone for the conference.
Thank you again!"
Kennedys Law Firm,
"Claire's talk was fantastic- just what we had hoped for and more. Great feedback from everyone who attended and I don't know how we can ever top that.
It was perfect"
"Claire has been our keynote speaker for two of our events. Her sessions have been extremely popular with our delegates and the feedback we received has been nothing but fantastic. Claire’s story although heart breaking at times is a truly awe inspiring and motivational one- told with Claire’s sense of humour which makes for an excellent session for any event. Thank you Claire!"
"Claire’s single hour was the most memorable session at our two day conference and is still talked about months later. Claire presented a fantastic lesson in positivity, strength and personal determination that individuals can understand and in turn use as motivation for themselves.
Thank you for sharing your world Claire.Thank you again!"
"Claire joined Microsoft as part of our Mental Health Awareness Campaign and Global Accessibility Awareness Day. Claire talked about the impact of technology and the role it's played in her mobility. She also inspired our employees with how she developed mental resilience . A true inspiration and natural speaker."
British Compressed Gases Association,
"It was a delight to meet Claire, when she appeared as our finale speaker at the BCGA annual conference.
Claire's exploits and achievements since her accident, and indeed Claire herself, are truly remarkable and very inspirational - and she held our audience of circa 150 delegates spellbound for an hour, to close our event on a real high. We have had a range of closing speakers at our event over many years, ranging from politicians, to athletes and celebrities – and I can say that Claire was up there with the best.
I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a truly wonderful speaker to those organising similar events."
Vodafone, Kerry Phillip
"Claire spoke to my global legal, risk and compliance team last week (October 2020) Since all 100 of us are working remotely, Claire also joined us remotely and spoke with us for an hour. And what an hour! Full of inspiration, motivation and a fascinating life story and view on the ups and downs of life.
Claire was warm, funny, moving and inspiring in equal measure. She kept us spell bound all the way through. If you are looking for a motivational speaker to talk about resilience, hope and sheer determination I recommend Claire!"
NHS Leadership Academy, Elizabeth Garrett
"Claire opened our NHS Leadership conference with her amazing and inspiring story. The audience, a mix of NHS leaders, future leaders and academics listened, laughed, cried and were all able to take something away from Claire’s session, whether it be personal or professional. Claire gave us a great insight into not only her personal story, but also her experiences of care and rehab in the NHS. This motivated delegates to ensure Claire’s experiences will inspire continual improvement of care quality and patient experience. We are so pleased Claire took the time to speak to us; the feedback from all in the room was unanimously positive, and she set the tone for a fabulous day"
"Claire has done a number of team presentations for me over the years - until recently they were all in person. However, this week she spoke at a session in my leadership team virtually. I have to say it was as inspirational and high impact as always. Claire's story and achievements are amazing and she is so approachable and easy for the team to talk to. I would highly recommend her as a speaker if you want to energise and motivate your team through these uncertain and challenging times!"
Thames Valley Police,
Brilliant and inspiring! Amazing, so inspirational! Very open and honest...Awesome!
The feedback from delegates says it all – I could write all 120 comments, they are all creditable. This is the first time we have had complete 100% ‘excellent’ feedback regarding the chosen guest speaker.
Without any doubt, Claire Lomas was the perfect guest speaker for this event – she has achieved what she set out to do and more. Her incredible honesty about her journey and experience was inspirational and impressive- a lesson to us all on determination and courage. Claire is an intelligent, captive speaker, who delivered so many valuable messages regarding achieving personal potential, following your dreams, aiming high and remaining positive. A credit to all that heard her speak.
Hoya Holdings NV, Anneke Sneevliet
"With many changes to navigate and a mindset to shift, Claire was the perfect motivational speaker for our global marketing team gathering is Lisbon. Her journey is an amazing and inspiring one, and the candour and energy with which she brought us along, coupled with her humour and down-to-earth delivery, left the team feeling motivated, positive and inspired by her incredible mindset.”
Virgin Media, Ben Jobson
"We invited Claire to be one of our guest speakers at a virtual away day in December. Not only was Claire a pleasure to deal with but her talk was
absolutely brilliant. It was definitely the highlight of the entire day. Her story is truly inspirational and we were left in awe of everything she has achieved. It even brought some of our audience to tears. I would encourage everyone to book Claire for their next event."
LBC Wise Counsel, Paul Gilbert
"We design skills and leadership development programmes for lawyers who work in some of the most significant and demanding companies in the world.
I met Claire for the first time in 2014 and from the very beginning I knew Claire would make an astonishing contribution to our work. Her story is of course extraordinary, but she is able to combine a talent for compelling story-telling in the most accessible, searingly honest and humbling way imaginable. She is the best of all us, but makes it possible for all of us to want to emulate her love of life, opportunity and potential. It is a privilege to work with her every year. The moment I first reached out to Claire will always be one of the best decisions I ever made."
Carnival UK, Sarah Cooper
"I was fortunate to hear Claire speak at an event and I was looking for a speaker for Senior Leaders at Carnival UK who could motivate, inspire and who lives and dreams determination and courage. Claire was the first person who came to mind!
As always, Claire was inspirational and took the time with people afterwards who stayed for her book signing.
If I can achieve a fraction of what Claire has, then I would be pretty proud of myself!
I would never hesitate to recommend Claire if anyone was looking for a keynote speaker."
AEGON Asset Management, Anne Scott
"Claire did an amazing live webinar for our organisation, which was broadcast globally, marking World Mental Health Day.
Feedback from across the business has been incredibly positive, with everyone citing her a complete inspiration and a very engaging speaker. She firmly leaves a lasting impression around the power of mindset, positive thinking and about what can be achieved with the right attitude and support. She also prompts us to think about how differently physical and mental illnesses are recognised and accepted in society. She was a pleasure to work with from start to finish – warm, friendly and very professional."
