Thank-you so much for your speech last night. The feedback has been phenomenal and many of my smaller food businesses are asking when they can work with you again!

It was inspiring and thought provoking and gave a lot of the clients an insight into what it takes to make it in the world of food.

Jason Gibb | Co-Founder | Bread & Jam

We invited Claire to come and speak at one of our seller events to our food producers and we’re thrilled we did. Claire manages that rare feat of delivering a talk that is both inspirational and practical, which was ideal for our audience of small food businesses. Like any great talk it left us all with a fresh perspective, new ideas and renewed energy for our businesses.
