About Claire Habel
I am the founder of Inspiring Futures, based in London, through which I am a Women’s Personal Business Coach and a Marketing Strategy Consultant.
I am hugely passionate about helping Women achieve their personal business dreams and all that comes with that, be it increased fulfilment, freedom, financial success or work-life balance (I am also happy to work with men). I am a big believer in the importance of finding the work you love and making it work for you, which is something I have done for myself and continue to work at.
Before qualifying as a Coach, I spent 9 years working in Integrated Marketing Agencies, most recently as an Account Director for clients including Procter & Gamble and GlaxoSmithKline. I loved motivating a team and helping them to develop personally whilst achieving great business results. I also thrived on the strategic and creative side of developing and growing an idea.
However, I’d always harboured a dream to work for myself, helping others on a more personal and one to one level. Plus it was working on smaller client businesses, direct with the business owners that I'd always felt more rewarded.
So, I committed to finding out how best to do this. Training as a Coach was an obvious choice not only because of my interest in human behaviour but due to its positive, empowering and forward focused nature. So, I re-set my course, trained and became a qualified Coach with an ITOL Diploma in Coaching Excellence. I immediately gravitated towards working with women with small businesses or those who had a desire to start thier own business.
My marketing skills and expertise proved a perfect compliment...Business Coaching and Marketing Support for small businesses seem to be a winning team not only for me but for the business owners I work with.
Integrity, honesty and respect are very important to me and I work by these values. I also have a genuine understanding of all that’s involved in us pursuing and achieving positive change both personally and commercially.
I’m happy to say that I’m living out two life dreams through Inspiring Futures…helping other women to thrive through their own ventures whilst running my own successful business.
