Meet Claire Antsey. She’s the founder of Citizen 89, who’s been one of the most vivacious media vixens in the UK at BBC, serving both sides while interviewing tycoons like Richard Branson, to now creating a VC backed PR platform specifically for entrepreneurs.  She’s unapologetic. She’ll tantalize you with her voice, incredibly charming & will command a room just by the aura of her presence. We met at an entrepreneurial gathering we are part of called A-fest, and got into a fireside chat at Soho house in London.
Exploring the nitty gritty of her tale of Emotional GRIT which did not start where she is today.
During this jam session, you get why it’s important to face some of the ‘dirty secrets’ in your life, aka the unwanted emotions that aren’t so glamorous for us an entrepreneurs.
