Claire Snyman is an author, blogger and advocate for patient and healthcare collaboration. She is passionate about inspiring people to put their health in their own hands. This was sparked by her personal journey with a brain tumor and brain surgery.



“I have had the opportunity to hear Claire Snyman speak at various conferences and she is not only delightful but has the ability to engage her audience and keeps them interested right through her presentations. As someone who manages many events, Claire is absolutely someone you want on your roster of speakers!”

Janic Gorayeb, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada

Claire’s book, Two Steps Forward, is a testament to what the human spirit can do. She recollects her experiences with a passion and elegance, but at the same time with the strength that characterized her journey from diagnosis, to neurological compromise, to treatment, and towards recovery.

Claire was a fantastic addition to Surgical Quality Action Day. As a patient, she offered unique insight into our complex health care system; as a facilitator and presenter, she created thoughtful and unique content that empowered participants to think outside of the box. Participants loved the interactive portions of her workshop and felt “activated” by her engaging style – and I did too!
