Clare has lead the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) since August 2015. Just 4 months into the job, she was up in front of the powerful Public Accounts Committee (PAC) in the now infamous review of Defra’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) delivery programme. If you have a spare couple of hours, the video makes for interesting viewing.

Clare also has a long-standing interest in leadership, change and diversity. She attends, promotes and understands the value of open space technology (A.K.A. unconferences) and is a champion of rebels, risk takers and reformers of government, especially in the digital arena.

As the most senior civil servant in Defra, she leads 1 of the departments that will be most affected by Brexit. To that end, Clare is currently working with her 3rd Secretary of State Michael Gove, who follows Andrea Leadsom and Elizabeth Truss.
