“Clara totally transfixed our group with her spirited, impassioned, and highly entertaining talk on the mistakes that can fatally derail a job seeker’s success. She shared a resounding message of hope, inspiration, and self-empowerment; connecting on an intuitive, authentic, and movingly personal and empathetic level with each person in the room. Clara is an effective, engaging speaker, thoroughly skilled in her craft: a compelling stage presence, polished, witty, delightfully charming, and disarmingly able to control both her message and her audience. I would highly recommend Clara to any group who comes seeking pragmatic, highly effective tools for self-improvement and career success, and prepared to leave enlivened, invigorated, and renewed!”
