Conversations with Claire

Hi, I'm Claire, the Founder and CEO of HomeWork Workspace. I'm originally a chartered accountant and worked for years in a very corporate job at PwC so starting my own business has been a bit of a wild ride by comparison!

As the founder of a startup myself and providing services to lots of other startups and small business owners at HomeWork, I'm surrounded by the highs and lows of being in business for yourself all the time. I get asked about it a lot, whether it’s isolation, strategic inspiration, funding, growing the pipeline, staffing, creating pitch documents - I’ve been there.

With that in mind, I’m delighted to launch Conversations with Claire, my very own blog! I’m excited to answer your questions and share my start-up journey, if you have any topics you'd like me to cover or specific questions, drop me a message below and I’ll happily do my best to cover them.
