Hugh Blane

To kick-off our exciting 2021/22 in-person Catholic Speaker line-up, Hugh will be traveling to Fresno from Seattle, Washington to join us for breakfast at Pardini’s on Friday, September 10th at 7:15am.

Love Deeply, Learn Daily, and Live In Holy Boldness

Embedded in the Catholic faith is the promise of an extravagant love, unconditional mercy, and an intimacy with Jesus that creates a new heaven on earth.

Most Catholics know of these promises, but all too often live their lives based on fear. Not because the promises are untrue, but because the audacity of the promises leave them feeling unworthy of a love of such magnitude.

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 left the church at age 23 and replaced his Catholic faith with a devotion to eastern mysticism and business success.

Through Ignatian Spirituality, Hugh found his way back not only to the church, but also to the reality that his greatest fears were the jumping off point for God’s promises and that fear had reduced his experience of love and joy as well as his business success by millions of dollars.

Hugh is the author of 7 Principles of Transformational Leadership: Create a Mindset of Passion, Innovation and Growth, and Mastering The Leadership Mindset. He has published over 425 articles and videos on leadership, influence and leadership communication. He is a Leadership Challenge Master Certified Facilitator, an Advanced Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coach, and a graduate of the Million Dollar Consulting College.

He is happily married to Alyson and they are parishioners of St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Burien Washington. They are members of the Seattle Chapter of Legatus, and Hugh has facilitated Ignatian Spirituality classes at his parish for five years.
