In her coaching, Clancey leverages her front-line experience to help her coachees to develop their executive presence, cultural sensitivities and strategic vision.

Clancey is most definitely the kind of helpful, practical, knowledgeable, diplomatic, go-to and pleasant colleague you want on your team! Clancey and I have worked on several projects for the past 5-6 years and it has been a delightful experience. Some of the best times have been in jointly leading conversations among thought leaders in the healthcare sector. A major asset that Clancey brings to the table is her experience both within and without healthcare - and we certainly need to see more such cross-pollinating of ideas across our healthcare sector.

Clancey is one of few senior business executives who understand the China healthcare market with first hand experience. Her strategic thinking and adaptability to change is impressive.

I had the pleasure of working with Clancey for several years at Ford Motor Company. Firstly, Clancey is a true professional. She was instrumental in building an award-winning, integrated communications team across Asia Pacific and Africa. Clancey is incredibly bright and highly strategic, and her interpersonal and multicultural skills are superb. She brought great insights to every meeting, including everyone in robust discussions that lead to perfect executions. Every team needs a professional like Clancey, who brings smarts, dedication, and a great sense of humor to work every single day. I would work with her again anytime, anywhere in the world.
