“Claire is a fabulous moderator / event chair. She grasps the subject matter quickly and does a wonderful job at making a script her own without losing or detracting from any of the content. She is a true professional at engaging with an audience and was a joy to work with.”  Christine Losecaat, Creative Industries adviser to UKTI.
