Claire began her career with Capita Travel and Events and has been with the company ever since, working her way up from the venue-finding team to the events division where she has been for the past six years.
"Claire is a respected and valued member of our team, and is regularly named in customer reviews as an asset to our business for exceeding objectives," says Kim Collins, director of events.
Best project I've worked on
We delivered a two-week long event in Geneva and I had to relocate to our Swindon office for three days a week for four months. It was the largest event I've worked on and the team morale around the project produced a real buzz.
Most challenging moment
I had to arrange transfers to Manchester Airport for 150 people on the spot when a flight from Lisbon had to be redirected to Liverpool because of bad weather.
I try and go to Formula 1 every year at Silverstone and I would love to organise something on that scale.
I've always wanted to go into property development.
