Claire Haigh FRSA Biography
Hi, great to see you here on my website and this page gives you a little more information about me, my experience and what motivates me to do the work I do.
I am Co-Founder of Collaborate Out Loud C.I.C. which I established with two amazing Collaborators Julia Wolfendale and Kev Wyke. Collaborate Out Loud C.I.C. is all about ‘creating surprising, simple and social spaces for public service innovation and flourishing’
When I am not working as part of Collaborate Out Loud I work independently and below is some information on what I do.
I work with organisations, systems and places to help them to explore, shape and connect future public services. i am passionate about working with people to help them reach their potential and develop innovative approaches to problems. I believe that through working collectively and collaboratively we can achieve so much more together and in this world of social networks and connections, technology can be a huge enable to this work.
I am an experienced, future focused and connected public service leader with extensive experience of leading collaborative programmes that transcend organisational and professional boundaries whilst achieving real and lasting outcomes. I am an expert networker, inﬂuencer and mobiliser who always approaches programmes with authenticity, passion and from a strength based perspective. I excel working in multi-functional teams, across organisational boundaries and where meaningful connections need to be made to achieve better outcomes. I have extensive experience working with senior leaders and politicians and an excellent understanding of the ever evolving policy context that is inﬂuencing public services reform. Being a qualiﬁed coach and with a background in organisational transformation and development and an RSA Fellow I have a strong foundation for the collaborative work undertaken and a practical understanding of the skills and behaviours required of our 21st Century ‘Public’ Servants.
Since graduating with a degree in Psychology from Royal Holloway 10 years ago, I have spent my career working in the public sector. Starting my career in Local Government in organisational development and transformation and then moving to work regionally across public services in the North West for the past six years in a variety of roles at North West Employers. Most recently I was their Director of Improvement which meant leading on their capacity and capability building strategy as well as leading a programme of innovative networking and connecting activities.
