Clare’s talk at Atlassian’s Design Week was nothing short of inspirational. Everyone could relate to the creative challenges she has faced and were touched by how open and vulnerable she was in sharing her story. Clare’s keynote was one of the most discussed sessions during the week.

Clare was fabulous! She managed to lead the whole room in a rendition of 'happy birthday' for Malcolm Turnbull, much to his surprise. Please pass on our heartfelt and huge thanks to her. Yes... she was perfection. She really made the announcement come alive with her warmth, intelligent insights about music and radio, plus her ability to get the whole crowd engaged and excited.

Clare Bowditch has that deep magic that opens hearts. I've watched her made a sold-out theatre of women and men cry, and then laugh hard, and then all sing... within moments. Clare is the beautiful kind of power: pure love with one of a kind talent

Participant Feedback
Women and Leadership Australia

We were looking for speaker who could energise an audience which was being challenged personally and professionally by the global pandemic. We got so much more than that. With her wisdom, empathy and good humour, Claire showed us how to find the power within to tackle these uncertain times. More importantly, Clare united our community of women, many of whom were struggling with self-doubt and isolation. As one of our members commented: “I really needed this to show there is a tribe out there caring and that I’m not alone. – President

Clare is an insightful, generous and exuberant MC and speaker. She was 100% attentive to the aims of our gig from the moment she landed until the moment she left (and beyond). Clare’s ignited passion and transformation in our audience (and our team). She was everything we’d hoped for and more. What a superstar.

Clare is one of those effortlessly mesmeric communicators. Her rare blend of insight and charisma means that people cannot help but be thoroughly engaged when she speaks.
Waleed Aly 

She is that rare combination of creative talent, intellectual insight and evident empathy for the human condition. She is a compelling speaker on a range of topics relevant to most of us, and has both a gifted and humorous capacity to make large and small audiences feel immensely welcome and involved.

Every time Clare Bowditch addresses an audience, a crowd or a person, she never fails to impress with her brilliance, insight, charisma, warmth and freaky ability to be in tune with people.  Be it a music concert or sitting between political heavyweights on ABC's Q and A, she is perfect on a panel, on her own or interviewing anyone, from Nanas on the street to political leaders.  Her extraordinary insight and natural connection with people stays with anyone lucky enough to be in her presence.
Catherine Deveny
I've worked with many radio presenters who have an on-mike persona and an off-mike persona, but Clare has just one warm, friendly persona which is her very own and it's the reason why everybody who speaks with her falls in love with her.

Most business coaching models rely on a blinkered belief in the success of the 'business' as one's ultimate goal.  Trouble is most of us see life as bigger than 'business'.   Enter Clare Bowditch with Big Hearted Business; her coaching has been a complete watershed…
Monique diMattina

In an era where one must wear many hats to survive in the creative world, Clare has an uncanny ability to see to the very core of the situation and bring gentle yet profound wisdom into the equation. I truly feel that she embodies the age old truth that one must lead by example.
