Expert speaker, Panel member, Guest speaker or Conference host. Just a few examples of events Clare has delivered and performed at a variety of events. In 2012, Clare Walker Consultancy delivered the Effects on the Children one day Conference to over 50 professionals. In 2014 Clare personally performed the Black & Blue Monologues, a Women’s Stand-Up event as part of Leicester’s Comedy Dave festival, this performance was written and produced by Clare, which aimed to raise awareness of domestic abuse. In 2017, Clare delivered the 1st Domestic Abuse Conference in Cyprus which was commissioned by SSAFA and the Military. The conference was attended by military officers, military police, SSAFA welfare services, indigenous welfare services, indigenous police, British Commonwealth Reps. Very unusual for conference on domestic abuse, this event was oversubscribed. The outcomes from this event are that many SSAFA staff have flown over to the UK to have training on the Freedom Programme, so that provision for victims on the island is more available. On the back of all of the success from this 1st conference we’re delighted to be returning for a repeat conference, with a few updates in Cyprus November 2019.
Since 2014 Clare as worked as an Expert Witness in the Immigration Tribunal Courts, Family Courts and Criminal Courts, assessing clients claims to being victims and where in agreement of that, Clare explains the complexities to the court in terms of impacts, effects and presentation of a victim.
Clare is also proud to be the Award Winner 2017 for the CPS & HMCTS. This came about when the Crown Prosecution Service and Her Majesties Courts & Tribunals Services decided to acknowledge partner agencies work that enabled and enhanced the work of CPS and HMCTS. This is a national scheme where nominations are made from individuals across the CPS and HMCTS workforce, nominating in terms of those they felt had gone that extra mile in their work and service delivery. The award ceremony was hosted at Nottingham Trent University, with awards being given out by high ranking Prosecutors and Judges.
