About this speaker

Brave, fierce and proudly Scottish, Claire is our event manager, connector and co-founder. Stirling lass Claire was elected Deputy Head Girl of Alva Academy before graduating with honours in business from Strathclyde University in Glasgow. Glasgow is also where Claire excelled in sport, training at City of Glasgow’s elite swim team and representing Scotland in 100m and 200m butterfly. After surviving a head on car crash at 17, Claire took up her beloved football upon recovery, going on to represent two Scottish premier league teams and the Scotland national university football team.

Claire moved to South Africa in 2007 after working in Australia and USA after university. She currently travels between Scotland and South Africa and her husband’s homes in Botswana and Zambia. Claire’s solid reputation in the events industry has led her to designing and producing events for global brands, national and local government, as well as start ups and global NGOs. She launched Firecracker (a nick name her former boss gave her) with Nicola in 2012 which has grown into a thriving agency with clients on 3 continents.
