Claire Bain - Facilitator, Coach and Trainer

A big lesson learnt from the pandemic is the need to connect and engage with others. The benefit of building strong supportive teams and networks to increase resilience and improve performance.

I have helped businesses and individuals create supportive networks, build their capability and perform. I’m Claire Bain – the owner of Next Steps – the thread of my 30 year career has been working with businesses and individuals to improve performance and get results. I do this through coaching, facilitation and training with clients virtually and face to face in Northern Ireland and beyond.

Clients include large organisations (e.g. Northern Ireland Electricity, Farrans Construction , The Institute of Chartered Accountants, Newry Mourne & Down District Council), businesses (including the Horatio Group and Trackars Healthcare) and individuals from a range of backgrounds (council staff, university lecturers, solicitors, nurses, doctors, civil servants, bank staff, engineers, contractors and students).

My expertise is to enable professional growth and development for clients, creating support networks in organisations and communities and deliver career and interview coaching for individuals.
