Chris Pearse


Through my company Clarity Space, I help leaders meet challenges that they can't meet on their own. Challenges around growth, lack of direction, conflict, stress and performance. As a CEO or MD, running or owning a business can leave you feeling isolated, exposed to high levels of stress and unable to find the right direction. I provide the experience, objectivity and energy to tackle the issues in a practical, effective and sustainable way.

My role is to help you, your business and your staff in three ways:

as an Interim Manager - rolling my sleeves up and providing day-to-day management of the situation over a period of weeks or months

as a Coach - supporting and challenging you and your team in understanding and dealing with the issues you face

as a Mentor - providing you with specific experience and advice to tackle your business problems in more effective ways

Often a mix of all three approaches is required.

Working across all sectors from FTSE 100s to SMEs and family businesses, I bring clarity, direction, effective decision-making and inspiration to management. I'm also an investor and non-executive director.

"...Chris also oversaw the process to remove a director who was found guilty of gross misconduct. Chris then obtained an excellent settlement to buy back the director's shares. He has also helped me to deal with high levels of personal stress and I would recommend him to any business that is struggling with issues that are critical to survival and success."

"In short, Chris provided the energy and insight to transform an untenable situation which could have had disastrous consequences – and in the process he inspired a new approach in the management to running the business. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Chris to any business in trouble."

"Chris is an absolute delight to work with. He combines a boldness in approaching the core issues in a situation with such tact and diplomacy that he is always an asset to the team. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a manager, collaborator and facilitator"

"We worked with Chris in 2010 when he helped us facilitate some important internal conversations to resolve issues that were distracting us from getting results. Chris was sensitive, insightful, and professional but most important was helpful to all of those involved to resolve the issues. Thank you Chris!"
