“The decision I made to book my place on Clare’s ‘Inspiring Success’ retreat was the best decision I’d made in a long time! For me, it came along at a great time, when I really needed help to feel inspired and re-energised with my business again. The retreat was so well organised and ran very smoothly. Clare was incredible and I instantly warmed to her and knew that I would like to work with her in the future. There was a wonderful group of women business owners, with a real mix of companies and skills. The guest speakers were fantastic and very inspirational. They shared a lot of valuable experience, tips and know-how, along with some very inspiring stories. The whole weekend was incredibly enjoyable, with the perfect balance of informal networking, valuable learning, relaxation time in the spa, and a fun meal with plenty of wine and chatter! I met some great fellow business owners and gained so much from the experience. I’ll definitely be booking my space for the second retreat! 5/5 Clare for an amazing weekend!”Heather Pierpoint

MEET YOUR INSPIRING SPEAKERS
Do you love the idea of writing an amazing business blog but find yourself staring at a blank page, not knowing what to write about? Or do you have loads of ideas but find that they don’t sound quite right when you try to put them on paper? If that sounds familiar, my interactive workshop ‘from blank page to blog’ is just what you need. We’ll work together to cover everything from coming up with topics, to finding your voice and making your blog work harder for you when it’s finished. You’ll arrive with a blank page and leave with a plan to get your blog off to a flying start.
In my session, I’m going to talk to you about how you could use digital products to take your business to a whole new level. If you follow any kind of social media for entrepreneurs, I’m sure you’ll have already heard that digital products are the “big thing” of the moment. But how do you work out the right digital product for your business and then, once you’ve got the idea, how on earth do you start making money out of it? Not all digital products are made equal, so in this workshop, I’ll help you understand the different types of digital products so you can work out which would work best for your business. Then we’ll start to come up with some ideas that would be unique to you and the key features that your customers will love you for.

The VHL Colour Workshop will redefine the way you look at yourself in the mirror! I will teach you the importance of colour and how to make it your superpower. I will demonstrate the seasonal colour palettes across different skin types so that you can see the magic that happens when you wear the colours that best suit you (and not what the latest fashion magazine tells you to wear!) . You will leave the workshop confidently knowing how to look good and how to love your reflection. You will embrace you for the Wonder Woman you truly are by refining and defining your signature style. Most importantly, the workshop will leave you feeling empowered, knowledgeable and excited!
You only get one chance to make a first impression!

“I would highly recommend attending the Inspiring Success Retreat if you are a female business owner who would like to connect with other women in business. The event was packed full of informative and inspiring talks, but there was still plenty of time in the programme for networking and relationship building so there are lots of chances to get to meet other delegates and to learn from each other. I made lots of new connections and enjoyed learning about all the different businesses run by the ladies who were attending the event. The venue for the retreat was perfect; an idyllic location with lovely grounds (which I enjoyed on an early morning walk on Day 2) and the accommodation and food was of a high standard. I particularly enjoyed having access to the swimming pool and spa facilities – a great way to end a busy first day! Clare attracted a lovely mix of both speakers and delegates to this year’s retreat and everyone went away inspired and raring to try out new things in their business. The content included workshops on video marketing, blogging and PR, as well as money mindset and about making time for you. A creative workshop was something everyone enjoyed too. Clare organised the event meticulously and it went really smoothly, with great feedback given by all the delegates. She should be deservedly proud of how the first retreat went and it is no surprise that she is planning the second one, which I am sure will be another great success!”Zoe Hiljemark
“Clare provided an amazing retreat at a wonderful venue. It was a fun, friendly and informative experience, led by Clare’s open, honest and supportive approach, which made us feel comfortable enough to share our own business problems, experiences and concerns. A brilliant opportunity to take time out from working IN my business and think about working ON my business to develop it even further. The quality and expertise of the speakers gave me invaluable knowledge and understanding which, in turn, has given me the confidence to tackle areas of content writing, PR, and video marketing that I know I had been shying away from. I also know that these experts are still there beyond the retreat, to help and support me if I need it.
In fact, I have kept in touch with most of the ladies at the retreat, giving me a really valuable network of like-minded business owners, who I now consider to be friends. Being surrounded by these women, both in and out of the timetabled retreat sessions, and hearing about their successes and challenges, was very empowering. I can highly recommend the whole experience to enable you to go away rejuvenated, inspired and ready to tackle new challenges for you and your business.”Jacquie Primrose
Meet Your Host…
I work with women just like you who are passionate about their business but realise the value in investing in themselves because they cannot do it all! We all need someone we resonate with and trust because they’ve been there and experienced the same frustrations and challenges that being a business owner can bring. Also, someone to be a sounding board as so often women don’t have the support they need, at home, as our partners think we’re running a hobby business!
I work with my clients on a 1:1 basis or via my signature 90-day ‘Your Success Buddy’ programme. I also run Planning and Goal Setting Workshops, Collaborative Coffee Meetups and this annual 2-day Business Retreat!
Come and join me and like-minded business women who are taking time out to work on their business over two days in a fantastic tranquil setting on the edge of the New Forest. You’ll go away so inspired with all the new knowledge, tips and lightbulbs moments, and, with some new friends and potential collaboration opportunities.
It’s your time to shine!
What the lovely April Inspiring Success Retreat guests had to say…
“I find myself caught between wishing I had known the benefits of investing in myself and my business long before now and being so happy that I learned this along my journey with Clare! This was my first ever business retreat or event where I really took time and money to focus on myself – I can tell you now it was worth every penny! The value gained from this was priceless! Firstly, Clare was amazing in offering flexible payment plans to suit a variety of people which really helped in making it possible for me to attend. The guest speakers were fantastic and every one of them had an amazing and inspiring story that resonated with me. The topics they covered were relevant to me and where I was in life and my business. I took away tonnes of information and tips that I could take action on as soon as I got home. I came away feeling so alive and on fire to just do! I honestly left feeling like I could take over the world! I came home feeling charged, a sense of self and assurance I did not have when I first walked into the conference room. The high I gained from attending the retreat is still with me weeks later. The clarity I have gained and the progress I have made since attending the retreat speaks volumes for its value. Such great things have been happening since then that it just keeps on going. My friends and family have noticed the difference. It’s not just myself and my business that is benefitting from this – but all other areas of my life too. Feeling such gratitude for having the opportunity to meet and connect with such amazing women whom I hope to get to know even more. Cannot wait for the next one as I will definitely be there. A huge thank you to Clare who is an absolute superstar for holding such an inspiring and important event.Monique Basil-Wright
“It was so good to take time out just for me, surrounded by other women business-owners. Hearing their experiences, journeys and successes was definitely inspiring. The honesty and vulnerability of the speakers meant at times emotions were high and there was a real sense of connection and empathy in the room. It was a truly special experience.”Nikki Tapley
“I attended the first Inspiring Success retreat in 2018. The venue was ideal for such an event, relaxed and not too formal with plenty of great food and drinks. The weekend was packed full of useful actionable tips, inspiring stories and support from other women running their own businesses. The room was full of positivity from start to finish and there were plenty of opportunities to talk and find potential collaborations as well as listening to the invited speakers. The 2 days flew by and I left at the end of them feeling invigorated and with a feeling of having made new friends not just business connections…something I don’t usually feel at networking events or on training courses.”Helen Dennett
“The hotel was lovely with great hospitality (but maybe a bit too much cake – is that possible?) and I enjoyed the time we got to spend in the Spa. I felt that we had time to get to know each other as a group. I value getting to know other business owners online but events like this really cement those friendships. By the end of the weekend, I felt inspired and energised to put the things I’d learned into action, even after the long journey back home to Leicestershire. It gave me a real shot in the arm. If you’re reading this considering going to next year’s retreat, don’t hesitate – book now! I had the most amazing weekend talking and collaborating with like-minded women and eating delicious food. I’ll definitely be back next time.”Kirsty France
“I was lucky enough to attend Clare’s first retreat in 2018. I am so glad I did! It was a high-quality event, filled with inspiring stories from every guest speaker and packed with loads of useful tips and information about different aspects of starting and running a business as a woman. And being able to get to know other women, all in the same position was fab. The two days flew by in a flurry of laughter, conversation, tears and thoughtful discussions. Roll on 2019 “Louise Scanlon
“I thoroughly enjoyed the Retreat and highly recommend anyone who is thinking of attending to just give it a try you won’t regret it. I had never been to anything like that before, and I found it to be informative and motivational and very inspiring. There was a good variety of speakers who were all very open and honest about their journeys into their businesses. I felt the size of the group of guests was just about right. There were enough people in the group sessions, but not too many people so everyone got a chance to contribute. The venue was perfect, a beautiful hotel with a fantastic spa and grounds. Also appreciated the complimentary cups of tea and cookies and cakes to keep us going throughout the sessions. Overall the Retreat was definitely value for money, I really enjoyed it and would definitely consider attending again!”Rachel Paley
The Inspiring Success Retreat will take place at the beautiful Chilworth Manor Hotel, an Edwardian Manor House set in 12 acres. Ideally situated in the heart of Hampshire, the hotel offers charming accommodation and a state of the art health club and spa, near to the cities of Southampton, Portsmouth and Winchester and a short distance to the M27 and M3 motorways and taxi ride from Southampton Railway Station.
Come and relax and enjoy a weekend away of luxury with sumptuous food, stunning surroundings, pamper time in the Spa, expanding your knowledge to help grow you and your business in 2019 and beyond, make new friends and connections and have fun!
