International female motivational keynote speaker, Claire Brumby

Female Keynote

Invite the award-winning British speaker and entrepreneur Claire Brumby to speak at your event.

With an expert level of business knowledge and expertise coupled with real-life experience growing my own independent business, I can share my story, passion, and vision to inspire your audience.

Why me?

When you invite me as your female motivational speaker or inspirational business speaker, you’ll get an engaging, compelling, and authentic account of my journey as a female entrepreneur and learn how to apply my insight to propel yourself and your business towards lasting success, and how to keep going when the going gets tough!

I speak not only through the eyes of a successful business owner but also as a woman and mum of three. I’ve faced life threatening illness, swam the freezing cold waters of the English Channel, dug deep into inner resilience and kept going when others doubted me.

That’s one of the many reasons I was named as one of the top 10 UK business speakers alongside other esteemed leaders such as Lord Alan Sugar, Deborah Meaden (Investor on Dragons Den) and Michelle Mone (Founder of Ultimo). I’m also very pleased to have been named one of the the 50 Women Who Are Changing The World Today.

Not only do I share what I’ve achieved, but I also inspire and motivate others to achieve their own goals, leaving a lasting impression where changed beliefs and actions can happen.

I have a simple belief that if I can do it, so can you.

Claire is such an inspirational speaker and coach. She brings so much energy to every talk she does, sharing her experience as a business owner herself but also from her years of coaching other entrepreneurs. She inspires, motivates and uplifts our audience after each talk and it’s such a joy to work with her. I would 100% recommend her!

Claire’s story of choice, chance and change was very inspirational and motivating for the team. It certainly met with our brief and I highly recommend Claire.

Would definitely recommend Claire to any business wanting a motivational speaker.  Claire’s story is based around her own personal journey so was very credible and came from the heart. Claire is an inspiring speaker who left us with a lot of food for thought

Deborah | Arla Foods

Doncaster Chamber invited Claire Brumby to speak about ‘The Terrifying Lows and Ecstatic Highs of Creating a Hugely Successful Food Brand’ at a well-attended Women in Business lunch. She was entertaining and gave an honest yet humorous account of how she grew her healthy snack food brand by being “disruptive” to get recognised. Guests described Claire as “inspiring” and “amazing” and appreciated her encouragement with their own business ventures.

Rebecca | Doncaster Chamber

Claire was amazing. Very inspiring, very knowledgeable, realistic, honest. It was a good day! Learned a lot

Simon Boot | Accelerator | part of London Metropolitan University

A huge thank you to Claire.  Her journey is a story of inspiration, determination and resilience told with passion and enthusiasm, very engaging and thought provoking.

Jonathon | Humber & Doncaster Chartered Management Institute

We invited Claire to come and speak at one of our seller events 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 food businesses.    Like any great talk it left us all with a fresh perspective, new ideas and renewed energy for our businesses.

Katie Kitiri | Founder | Yumbles

Thank-you so much for your speech last night. The feedback has been phenomenal and many of my 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.

Wow! – Inspiring! – Outstanding presentation! – What a powerful story. These are just a few of the messages we recently had from a presentation Claire did for us at one of our annual sell-out events… Over the last five years, I have had the pleasure of working closely with Claire on her journey to becoming a powerful, knowledgeable, inspirational professional speaker and coach in her own right. It’s been a genuine privilege to see her grow and develop as a coach and business speaker. Claire’s incredible back story is delivered with style, passion, intelligence and relevance. Her pace, content and key messages are all delivered professionally and most importantly with the audience in mind. If you are looking for a professional, inspiring, qualified business speaker for your business event, expo or conference I highly recommend you get in touch with Claire Brumby. We will most certainly be inviting her back. Highly recommend
