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 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
“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.”
