About Me

Professional Speaker | Thought Leader | Sustainability Strategist 

WELCOME! I’m Clare Feeney 

In the course of my life, I’ve been a limestone nut, a university lecturer and a sewage disposal expert.

With over 30 years’ experience with hands-on environmental management and training, I’m also a published author and have won four major awards for my professional speaking and environmental work.

Now I take to the stage to demystify, descarify and enjoyify matters environmental.

People tell me they love the new light I shed on issues often considered too scary, irrelevant or complicated to tackle. “Original, edgy, practical and refreshingly un-PC”: you can rely on me for a novel perspective, engaging you with “humour, wit and grace”.

Why do I do what I do? Because I want everyone to know they can transform their job into a green job – a family-friendly job that heals people and places.

Every job? Yes! Whether you run a dairy farm or a server farm, or work in marketing or manufacturing – your job is a green job.

And because I’ve fallen into so many potholes on my own winding way to understanding people in business, government and not-for-profit bodies, I can share the pain and the laughs of the sustainability challenges we all face!

My business, now over 25 years old, is called Environmental Communications Ltd, which aligns with my mission of communicating positive change.

The second edition of my book “How to Change the World – a practical guide to successful environmental training” was published in the UK in late 2019. It’s about helping people do what others have successfully done.

My current challenge is finding enough time for family and friends and getting out there into the natural environment for restoration and inspiration …

“My mission is to transform every job into a green job – that’s a family-friendly job that heals people and places. And to have fun doing it!”

The task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen; but to think what nobody has yet thought, about
that which everybody sees.
