Inviting Claire into my Creative Entrepreneurship class was a no-brainer; her unique perspective leverages trust, respect, and advocacy in the workplace. Claire made an unequivocally positive impression on my students and I can't thank her enough! I'm excited about her next visit already!

I really, really enjoyed Claire coming to speak to us. It was refreshing to hear from a former student and a woman in the creative field. She discussed a lot of very useful pointers for us to utilize, and I learned a lot of good tips around things I had been struggling with.
