Claire’s corporate career has involved secondments to the Scottish Government and to the European Championships Media Team.
Claire is a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and the Public Relations Communications Association (PRCA). She is also a member of the Association of Scottish Businesswomen and attends the Scottish Parliament Cross Party Group for Women in Enterprise. When not working, Claire loves to travel, ski, play golf or go to the gym.
Since the launch of g6 communications, Claire has had the pleasure of working with a variety of exceptional businesses and people. A small selection has shared their thoughts on working with her:
“I met Claire when she first got in touch about attending some fitness classes at my gym. Through getting to know her, I found out she ran g6 communications. However, it wasn’t until a friend recommended her services that I thought about asking her for help. I initially asked to meet with Claire to discuss ideas on how to expand my business presence online. She was extremely well prepared, listened well and was very engaging to chat with. I decided right there and then to work with Claire on my business. She continually brings great ideas to the table and helped teach me the in and outs of social media. I couldn’t recommend Claire, and g6 communications enough!”
Owner, The Engine Room
“Claire at g6 communications was amazing to work with, she helped put me at ease and her professional manner shone through. Claire helped get my business on track with her invaluable advice – from the initial thoughts and concepts to website and strategy and later the social media launch. Claire was always available to run ideas past and get advice which helped me get ready to launch the new business. I knew nothing about social media and Claire explained the process and me feel more comfortable about how to use it. Her ongoing support since launch has helped me and my company. I would recommend Claire and g6 communications to anyone.”
Managing Director, Assurgent Ltd.
“I contacted Claire at g6 communications for assistance with all things social media and for advice on preparing for an award interview and improving my public speaking at networking events. Claire was an absolute godsend for me and my business, explaining and showing clearly how to tidy up my social media sites, how to present myself and how best to prepare for public speaking and the award interview. I can’t thank her enough for her assistance. She has inspired me to much greater things and given me the confidence to present myself and my company clearly and concisely. I’d highly recommend her services to anyone who finds themselves a bit lost or unsure as to how to place themselves or their business in the public domain. Thank you Claire!”
Managing Director, Ardanach Lettings Ltd.

Claire was a pleasure to work with, showing fantastic knowledge and displaying a positive attitude towards everything we discussed. We would highly recommend g6 to anyone who needs help getting their proposition out there.”
Managing Director, Findlay & Co. Financial Services
“Being new to business, Claire made things simple which was great. She supported me from the first day I asked her for help. She made me feel comfortable and gave my business the time it needed to make it even more successful.
I would highly recommend Claire and g6…..you won’t regret it!”
Owner of CloseCallsPro
“My first meeting with Claire was like a weight of my shoulders – she took the time to listen to my ideas and expanded on them. Claire gave me direction and clear objectives on how to reach my business goals.
I honestly can’t recommend Claire enough as she oozes professionalism and offers a high quality communications service. She even continues to answer any questions I have – that’s how much she cares about the growth of your business.”
Owner and Head Coach of OWNNIT
“Claire is an incredibly passionate, knowledgeable and hard-working communications professional. I have worked with Claire on several high-profile projects, many attracting local, national and international attention, and I was always impressed by her impeccable communications skills, business acumen and strategic vision. No matter what the task at hand is, Claire always looks at the bigger picture, not only concentrating on protecting and promoting the reputation of the organisation, but that of everyone who works there too.
Claire mentored me and helped me gain confidence in myself and my abilities, helping me flourish into a competent communications professional. I have no doubt that I wouldn’t be where I am now without Claire’s wise counsel. To this day, Claire remains one of the few people I will go to for both personal and professional advice.”
Communications Manager (Public Sector) & g6 communications Consultant
“I was blown away by how professional and proactive Claire was from the get-go. Not only was she full of ideas on ways to help me improve and grow my own business, she had researched my business before we even had our first meeting and presented so many suggestions. This saved us both time, and I was able to act straight away. I have spent money and time with Consultants in the past, and I can say, with confidence, that I got more from Claire in one session than I did over two months of working with other specialists. I will definitely be working with Claire again, to plan and deliver my future promotional campaigns. 5 Stars for Claire & 5 stars for g6 communications.”
Owner, JR Global Life Coaching
