We know we make big promises, but that's because we're good at keeping them and making them happen. You needn't take our word for it - just ask our clients:

I first met Clarissa at a Legal Event ( an area of special expertise for her ) that she had organised for BDO LLP. The event involved a "Hot Tubbing- Cross Examination" role play. For the event, Clarissa managed to secure a High Court Judge, two QCs and leading practitioners in Forensic Accountancy. It was attended by a large number of other QCs, barristers, solicitors and accountants, and was a triumphant success. Following this, using her creative flair Clarissa arranged for me to chair a Seminar organised by her at Tate Britain, entitled “Fraud in Art and the Art in Fraud” attended by over 200 CEOs, accountants, solicitors and significant members of the art world, with Speakers such as Sandy Nairne CBE , then Director of the National Portrait Gallery, Mark Stephens CBE, Solicitor and Chairman of the Contemporary Art Society, and Chairman of DACS, together with the leading scientist Dr Nicholas Eastaugh, Director of Art Analysis and Research. This event showed Clarissa’s innovative approach and was an enormous success, entirely owing to Clarissa’s really extraordinary ability to arrange such event from idea to realisation with apparent ease, and with striking attention to detail. Clarissa also has an extraordinary ability in successfully connecting people, with warmth and charm and sensitivity. She has contacts all over the world. The fact that Clarissa speaks five languages means that she has the ability to reach cross borders and bring people together, and create, realise and manage cross cultural events, and help spearhead new initiatives in areas that might otherwise prove challenging. Her hard work, creativity and judgement make her the best person that I have met to undertake creative business development, connecting people by means of brilliantly organised and successful events that increase brand and market visibility.

Clarissa is an "A" grade BD and client development expert. She combines personal charm with a ken mind and excellent organisational skills. Her vision as to what will work from a customer focus is only to be admired.

Clarissa is creative, brilliant at developping relationships both at a corporate and personal level and is strategic at every stage. I thoroughly recommend working with her.

I have worked closely with Clarissa over a number of years at BDO. I have always found her positive, refreshing and totally professional. Her ability to mix with many cultures and professional backgrounds is impressive, and the ease in which she carries out her tasks is commendable. She is also great fun to work with!

Richard Farr - Head of Pensions Advisory BDO LLP, London, UK

Throughout the endeavours over several years in which I have had the professional satisfaction and pleasure to work with Clarissa, she has proven to contribute with a creative business development approach, exercise great skills in connecting people in a significant manner, and design as well as make happen super high end events that increase brand and market visibility. The result of all this is that Clarissa knows how to make things happen! Her new venture demonstrates once more her understanding of what entrepreneurship is all about and how to put together ventures that contribute to her clientele.

Rolf Stern - Managing Partner, BDO Ecuador Group

Clarissa was incredibly helpful in setting up the launch event for our luxury handbag brand. In particular, she perfectly understood the positioning of our brand and could tap into her wide network of female professionals to ensure the event was visited by the right group of target customers. She orchestrated the communication in the run-up to the event superbly and made sure everyone was excited about it and spoke about it within their own network. She exhibited great planning skills and a brilliant attention for details. I would at any time entrust her with the planning and execution of another event.

Ella Rabener - Founder & Creative Director at Ella Rabener Luxury Handbags

I have been extremely impressed by Clarissa's capabilities to help in developing business in advisory services. She has a strong experience in networking, assisting professionals to create and strenghthen their relationships with potential clients or contacts. Very creative to organize successful events and excellent capabilities to manage them. I very much appreciated her availability and professionalism.

Fabrice Chaffois - Head of Advisory, BDO France

I have worked with Clarissa for several years relying on her talents and insights to advance an important global initiative. Clarissa met and exceeded expectations. She is a forward thinker anticipating challenges and changes in the market, but more than a problem identifier. Clarissa is someone who identifies solutions and alternative paths. She is particularly adept at developing and maintaining strategic relationships and leveraging those relationships as a growth engine. She is someone who I enjoyed working with from day 1 and I would highly recommend to professionals seeking business development, event planning, marketing and PR guidance.

Glenn Pomerantz - Forensic Accountant Lead Anti-Corruption Compliance & Investigations Practice (FCPA), BDO Consulting, New York, USA

Clarissa played a key role in the introduction of our Spanish law firm in the UK legal market. She was very helpful and proactive in coordinating and introducing us to some of the main law firms in London. She is a lovely person who is always ready to cooperate and help you in any business development need you might have.
