BeClear Founder Denise Spatafora is renowned for her transformative, strategic work with CEOs, start-ups, VCs and private and public companies. The proven BeClear methodology ensures a company’s success by stressing team alignment and creating a frictionless culture. Spatafora’s clients include Google, Lionsgate, WSJ, Chanel, Staples, RAND & GreyCroft Venture Capital.

Spatafora developed the BeClear Method through a wealth of practical experience, her background as a serial entrepreneur – launching her first company at age 23 in NYC; as well as her conflict resolution in leadership successions and her mediation activities in Northern Ireland’s notorious sectarian violence. She conducts effective customized off-sites, working with CEOs and their teams to develop strategic roadmaps ensuring results including identifying detrimental dynamics while evolving intra-group communications and creative collaboration.

Spatafora and BeClear have received acclaim from esteemed media titans such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Vogue and NBC’s Today Show. A published author, Spatafora also parlayed the BeClear Method to create and teach an innovative, well-received entrepreneurial curriculum at UCLA.

“The BeClear method is an astonishing combination of wisdom and business grittiness that helped me see the ‘goal,’ the roadblocks I erect to those goals, and the path to my own effectiveness in the world.”

– Ralph Sutton, Director of Credit Suisse

“Denise did a masterful job in facilitating the first ever offsite of a fast-growing cross border venture capital firm that has grown from a one person operation to 36 people across two markets. She helped us understand our organizational strengths and weaknesses and more importantly, helped us craft a strategy on how to institute a culture of alignment and accountability. She helped us further crystallized our commercial aspirations and assisted us in reinforcing our long term objectives. Thanks to Denise’s clarity, we learned a lot about ourselves that weekend. It was a priceless experience!”

– Eric Manlunas, Founder and Managing Partner, Wavemaker VC. Paul Santos, Managing Partner, Wavemaker Sea, Singapore

“I hired Denise to help me design an offsite for my team focused on alignment and strategy for the next year. The experience she created was extremely productive and deeply impactful, and in the end completely exceeded my expectations. In a short period of time, Denise helped us to address long-standing roadblocks using real-time conflict resolution and offering tools for better communication that promote collaboration. We witnessed several breakthroughs both in the group dynamics and in individual leadership identity and style that will have long-standing impact on our work. Denise’s method and skilled coaching helped us to accomplish a tremendous among in a short period of time and left the entire team feeling clear, empowered and energized about the opportunities ahead. I have never seen such an effective offsite coach in any corporate environment, and I would enthusiastically recommend Denise and her approach to other companies and leaders.”
