SERVICE: DEFINING SOCIAL IMPACT VALUES AND MARKET PROPOSITION
"I approached Claire Louise for support around positioning Land & Sky as leaders in producing social commentary films and ensuring we were able to maximise our social impact. She was great to work with and the process she lead us through was really clear, structured and supportive. We came away with clear goals and simple, achievable steps we could take to embed social impact into our business. I would highly recommend working with Claire Louise - we are well on the way to ensuring our values drive our business in every aspect of what we do and I know this has many benefits not only to us but to our wider community. Thank you Claire Louise - it was an absolute pleasure!"

SERVICE: COMMUNITY OWNERSHIP MODEL DEVELOPMENT
Energy company Innogy SE commissioned the design and implementation of a research project to enable local communities to support renewable energy development. The project involved extensive research into the implications of the Localism agenda on local planning processes, socio-economic research in certain priority areas for the company, mapping of key contacts for our development teams and recommendations on how the Wind Benefit Protocol might be best invested into local communities.
"The work that Claire led resulted in RWE Npower Renewables launching one of the first community ownership models within the renewable wind sector, something that differentiated us within the UK market at that time.
As a person I found Claire to be extremely professional, and someone that was able to quickly establish positive working relationships with everyone that she came into contact with. Claire very quickly became seen as the knowledgeable person within the organisation on the localism agenda, and how we should adapt our working models to accommodate these new requirements."
