Clare Chaney

Strategy Consultant

Clare has spent the last six years building up a successful consulting business as part of The Alternative Board, at any one time she had over 30 companies that she was helping to achieve both their personal and company goals. Having worked with both small and large business over many years helping to deliver owner and shareholder value, Clare was able to build her own business and sell it 2 years ago. She is now working with Avondale as one of their strategic consultants and as an independent advisor running one peer board, working with a number of business owners.

Clare has pursued a highly successful career in broadcasting and new media for the past 25 years with a track record of developing start-up and SME businesses through strategic leadership and business transformation.

Clare then became a key member of the founding executive team that won the contract to develop and launch the government funded start-up: Teachers TV, eventually becoming CEO. She went on to develop a model for a new business, creating a wholly online product, securing seed capital of £1.2 million and setting up a new company.

Leading complex tender negotiations, embedding effective business models and operational frameworks, managing and inspiring management teams and her stakeholder management experience provide Clare with the credentials for supporting business owners both on the boards and with Avondale.
