Women in Business Coffee Morning with Claire Akin-Smith

Join us for a great opportunity to catch up with like-minded business women over a relaxed coffee and hear from Claire Akin-Smith: How she went from Therapist to Strategist, People Pleaser to People Energiser.

Claire spent several decades meeting the needs of people as a healthcare professional with expertise in physical medicine, diagnosing, managing and consulting while climbing the rungs of the UK medical system, reaching the title of Consultant Physiotherapist Extended Scope Practitioner in Conservative Management. This gave her significant experience in human behaviour and effective communication, which she now uses with her coaching for a greater impact empowering individuals, teams and organisations to value and effectively support their people. 

As a self proclaimed joyful, courageous, warrior her mission is to see people value themselves and each other as part of a sustainable living eco-system where work and community equally thrive in balance with the environment. 

Claire now works in the business space, as well as with individuals privately as a Human Energy Strategist who inspires, educates and enables people to live more fulfilling, balanced lives that create personal and workplace growth, learning, and a greater sense of purpose.

As part of her work Claire continues to use her skills as Movement Specialist recognising human potential includes investing in the quality of our physical container to generate and conduct energy specific to our unique needs and purpose. Claire leads by example willingly sharing her own life journey, demonstrating personal and professional achievements through trauma, disability and failures with self belief and transparency. Leaving those she interacts with inspired and willing to take action.
