You want your event to run well and your audience to leave inspired and ready for action. Here is what I will do for you ….
Before your event
study your conference themes, objectives and desired outcomes
interview your event planner and client representatives to agree on my brief
get a good sense of the goals, pressures, constraints and opportunities you face
blend your sector’s zeitgeist with my own unique take as The Sustainability Strategist to tailor or customise an entertaining and informative presentation for your audience
provide my AV requirements, and customised introduction and travel itinerary in advance
provide publicity photos and a customised biography to help you promote your event.
During your event
turn up early to liaise with your event organiser, client representative, AV team and MC
mingle with attendees to canvass your sector’s mood, hopes and needs
change my presentation or its timing to suit your schedule and needs on the day
keep to time – or if events are running late, make up for lost time
deliver an entertaining, engaging, relevant and informative presentation
leave your audience with a clear call to action and the tools they need to respond to it.
After your event
stay after the presentation to engage with attendees and answer questions
prepare for you a short post-event review of my learnings, impressions and suggestions for next steps to maximise the impact of my presentation
ask for feedback from you after the event
provide access to resources and support as needed for your attendees.
And here is what I won’t do …
go over time
give you any nasty surprises
bill for hidden extras
breach the confidentiality of any client.
Clare changed my viewpoint on what sustainability means and helped me think more laterally about what can be done.

Clare’s presentation was edgy, informative and refreshingly un-PC.

Clare was the stand out speaker at our Stormwater and Sediment Field Day. This event is held outside and it is a feat to address the 300 attendees. As the final speaker, Clare captivated and engaged the audience, finishing the presentations on a high note.
