About Clare Desira + Top Five Movement

Experienced Mindset Speaker + Award Winning Happiness Tools

We believe negative thinking is boring.

It steals our energy, sleep and time.

So what’s the alternative?  

We can’t be the only ones rolling our eyes at idea of rainbows and lollipops type positive thinking, right?

The truth about positive thinking is this:

Positive thinking isn’t pretty. It’s powerful.

It’s not something nice that you read on a fridge magnet and then forget.

It’s instrumental to your happiness and the way you see life.



Here’s the scientific deal:

You have 65,000 thoughts a day.

Most of these thoughts are negative.

Most of your thoughts are on repeat from the previous days.

A positive thought or reflection today can go on to repeat consciously or unconsciously and take the place of more unhelpful thoughts in our minds.

And get this…some of them in the mix aren’t even ours (eg. someone told you you were too tall/too short, too slow, too fast, too smart, not smart enough).

You only have the chance to add in a VERY small % of new thoughts in a day.

What are you going to do with your daily opportunity to add in new thoughts?

We’re here to show you how to make those new thoughts count.

Let’s make those thoughts count:

  1. Invite us to speak with you team, students or event audience, even just for an hour
  2. Buy our award winning deck of cards – they’re not nice cards, they’re life changing cards
  3. Grab your free daily planner. It’s not about jamming more onto your to do list, it’s about simple tweaks to build an unbreakable foundation so you can to take life where you want to and have more fun along the way.

PS. We’re currently booking up months in advance so if you can’t bring me in for your event but don’t want to miss out?….online workshops are coming soon. Jump on our mailing list to be first to know.

What others are saying...

(About our workshops + speaking)

“I’ve booked Clare three times to support my team and a conference that brings leaders in our industry together (and I’ve already booked her in already for another event in 2018). After Clare’s workshop our team now have tools to shift their mindset during change from a fear of failure and frustration to feeling empowered, confident and ready to contribute. Any team can benefit from a mindset reboot with Clare.

I look forward to watching my staff develop both personally and in their working career over the coming months from Clare’s inspirational presentation.”

Annette Griffin, CEO, Heritage Isle Credit Union

(About our award winning card deck)

“The application of this practical and fabulous tool promotes the daily mindful cultivation of positive thoughts, feelings and experiences into the fabric of our brains. This results in lasting inner strengths which promote health, wellbeing and happiness. Our brain ‘default position’ can literally be transformed from a negative focus to the positive.”

Kristen Barnes, Psychologist

(About our workshops + speaking)

“Clare opened our Apple Education team day with a workshop that absolutely left us feeling motivated and energised for the day ahead. We have team members based all over the country so it is important we use our time together openly and effectively. Engaging our team through a focus on positivity couldn’t have been timed better and allowed us to head into the rest of the day ready for productive problem solving and strategising as a team.”

Josh Levy, Business Development Executive - Education, Apple

(About our workshops + speaking)

“Clare’s address was an ideal start to our conference – passionate, engaging and thematically on-point. Clare told her story effectively and with humour, relating exceptionally well to her audience and leaving students inspired with simple and practical tips to take away and make change in their own lives. Clare was friendly, positive and supportive – a sincere and genuine person as well as a fantastic speaker.”

Luke Icely, One Small Thing Conference Director, Federation University Australia

Through our award winning speeches, workshops, coaching, deck of cards and newsletters we’ve:

  • helped people shift from feeling scared and defensive to confident and empowered during a restructure or challenging time at school.
  • showed people it is possible to find peace and calm amidst devastating family news.
  • fuelled self belief and clarity like never before so our clients could start that business, feel confident and proud in their own skin and stop being passive in their career and jump in the drivers’ seat.

Our work isn’t about aspirational, unrealistic thinking.

We show you how you can change your brain.

It is practical, simple and game changing.

Meet Clare Desira

I’ve had some dream roles over the years…

  • linking $18 million of volunteer time with hundreds of community organisations for NAB
  • delivering an in person money mindset program to over a thousand women
  • becoming a fellow with the Centre for Sustainability Leadership
  • co-directing an annual week long leadership program for youngsters for over 10 years and
  • learning from the best in the business while working on the Telstra Business Women’s Awards.

Wearing parallel hats across community, leadership, corporate and education worlds has taught us a thing or two about the tools that work. The things that every single person can apply and share with their loved ones.

We’ve packaged up 15 years of experience and qualifications in program development and delivery, behaviour change measurement, public speaking and mindset coaching to bring you these opportunities.

I can’t wait to work with you!

Let's do this...

Lastly, What is a Top Five?

Our business name came from our movement of generosity that was sparked from a daily little habit called writing a Top Five. We think this little list is the secret weapon not only for changing our day but actually changing the world. To learn more, check out our TEDx talk here.
