Claire Collis is a digital education specialist, teacher and writer who works with entrepreneurs and small business owners, supporting them to create books and online courses as strategic pillars of their growing businesses. Through her mentoring and consultancy work she helps clients across the world to share their stories, knowledge and expertise in ways that support their goals, their businesses and, in turn, those of their clients.
With dreams of having her own freedom-led business Claire left her 9-5 job in 2018, travelled, studied remotely for her MSc Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh and slowly worked out the what, the how and the why of the business she has today. Becoming a smaller business owner gave Claire the courage to also follow her childhood dream to write, she now works on her own books, as well as ghostwriting books for clients.
Claire draws on her extensive and varied experience, education and training to help her clients to see the online course and book possibilities and opportunities available to them, both now and in the future. Her signature approach comes down to using technology and storytelling to support learning, the sharing of knowledge, the delivery of services and ultimately to help small business serve more people as they move online, develop, and grow.

Coherent - Spotlight: An Interview with Stacey, The Tribe Cowork
In this featured interview Stacey discusses why she set up The Tribe Coworking in Totnes, how the events of 2020 challenged her and her business and why she launched The Tribe Online in collaboration with Claire. Read the article to find out about Stacey's perspective of Claire's knowledge and skills in digital education and what working with her on this collaboration has been like.
"Before the global pandemic hit, I had a full schedule of in-person workshops planned for 2020. With social distancing restrictions in place this no longer is a viable model. I knew I needed to move things to a digital platform, but the thought of having to get to grips with the technology side of it was a real obstacle for me. Luckily, this is Claire's zone of genius. She talked me through the whole process in a way that was easy to understand and made it far less daunting. She had lots of suggestions regarding the format and structure of the course I want to run and after Claire's guidance, I feel so much more empowered to share my knowledge with my audience on a digital platform instead. I couldn't recommend Claire highly enough."
"If you’ve been wanting to get that course or book out into the world, Claire is the person to go to. She helped to clarify my ideas for my copywriting course, gave me solid advice on how to package them as modules and price them, and explained the technical side of things. More importantly, she gave me confidence to get started! Within just an hour of consultation, we worked out a concrete action plan that I can now use for building my course. Plus her sense of humour makes her such a fun person to work with."
