Hugh Blane doesn’t claim to know everything about your business. He does claim however to know more than anyone about converting human potential into accelerated business results – that’s why his clients call him the Talent Alchemist. 

His consulting firm, Claris Consulting, is retained by clients such as Microsoft, Sony Pictures, Stanford University, Providence Health Systems, Nordstrom, Pepperdine University and the University of Texas in Qatar to challenge assumptions, jettison complacency and catapult growth.

Hugh is a serial entrepreneur and doesn’t shy away from reinventing himself. After eleven years as the CEO of his own financial consulting firm, Hugh reinvented himself when he was recruited to join renowned business author Tom Peters as a senior level consultant with The Tom Peters Company.

After traveling to three continents, working in seven countries and forty-three states, Hugh left to become the youngest partner and consultant in the venerable consulting firm, the Effectiveness Institute. After seven years, Hugh recognized that it was time to reinvent himself again and started Claris Consulting.

Hugh is the author of 7 Principles of Transformational Leadership: create a mindset of passion, innovation and growth and his work with executives and entrepreneurs centers on converting human potential into accelerated results.

Hugh once ran with the bulls in Pamplona and learned how not to get gored. He is happily married to Alyson and they reside in the small beach community of Normandy Park, Washington.
