ABOUT US

What difference could it make to your personal or professional life if you had clearer thinking more of the time? Or if you were able to get more great thinking out of your teams or the people around you?

Our name, Clear Thinking, is not an accident. 

We hold a core belief that the way we think dramatically influences our success and if we can ‘get the head right’ everything else will follow. 

There’s a wide-held assumption that good thinking is a natural skill but how many of us have actually been taught how to think well?

Then add in the pressures of the world we live in – the urgency to make quick decisions or to juggle multiple demands – and taking the space to slow down and reflect before rushing into action becomes virtually impossible.

We believe quality thinking is vastly undervalued. The way we think impacts every aspect of our lives and the level of contribution we are able to make in business and life. Does it make sense to leave it to chance?

We believe quality thinking is vastly undervalued. The way we think impacts every aspect of our lives and the level of contribution we are able to make in business and life. Does it make sense to leave it to chance?

That’s where we come in.

Working together for 14 years, we collaborate to co-create a space of openness and connection to have difficult and challenging conversations that really encourage independent thinking. We want to get people to think differently, talk openly and perceive new possibilities for themselves and others. Our work is less content led and more insight heavy, because we know that personal insight is the absolute key to realising potential.

Kate Miles-Roberts

Kate is an experienced facilitator, development programme designer, qualified coach and has worked with a variety of well-known FTSE 250 companies. She has had a wide and varied career to date. After meeting and working together at Argos, Kate formed the Clear Thinking Partnership with Bev. She uses all of the practical management experience that she’s gained from managing teams and achieving great results to help others achieve the same success for themselves. Kate’s background means that she can jump straight into the shoes of the managers and leaders that she works with, empathise with their current reality, challenge their thinking, and share the benefit of real experiences with them.

Kate is proudly pragmatic and has a no-nonsense approach to learning that comes from a good grounding in the fast and furious retail sector where making sensible decisions and doing things that count is essential. A passion for all things dramatic outside of work keeps Kate busy and she’s an active member of Southport Little Theatre.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT BEV & KATE?

I wanted to fully immerse myself in the creative. I needed fun and energy, and the group provided that - a group of like-minded explorers made this even better. I was able to support others and be supported. Bev & Kate were the perfect partners and hosts, and held such a good space. I learned so much from others, but was also reminded of what I had to offer."
