Testimonials

Claire is a superb writer, with a deep passion for her craft. As a marketing strategist-copywriting team, we worked together on a number of HP communications, from thought leadership pieces to web copy, and Claire’s ability to weave clever and strategically ‘spot-on’ storylines made her a joy to work with, and instrumental to our clients’ success.” ~ Jack Weldon, Pearson & Co

“I have been working with Claire for over a decade now and her work never ceases to amaze me. She is one of the most knowledgeable writers I know and always the first person I turn to when a challenging project comes up, because she just “gets it”. From demand gen to collateral her copy is engaging and smart. She is a strategic, technical, conceptual writer and her words always hit the mark.”  ~ Jenee Difu, Pearson & Co.

Claire has spearheaded our social media strategy at The Working Chronicles. She created our communications plan, introduced us to tools and resources to implement that plan, and actively worked to increase our profile on twitter, FB and LinkedIn. She is a creative professional with great writing skills, who has continued to listen closely to our evolving goals and needs, and respond with new ideas. Claire is someone I can count on to follow through, and educate me as a partner on the newest thinking in the social media world.Molly Rosen, Managing Editor, The Working Chronicles

“As a writer for the Catholic Foundation’s newsletters and other communications, Claire has written some of our organization’s most strategic and sensitive messages. She is absolutely delightful to work with and I always look forward to every communications project she works on for us. Her ability to “craft” messages that reach the heart-and-soul is outstanding. Without her clear, concise words, I know for certain that the Foundation would not have been able to communicate with all of our constituents as well as we have since we started working together in 2008. I respect her, I admire her, and most of all… I appreciate her.”  ~ Carter Wells, Catholic Foundation of Santa Clara County

“As the Communications Director at Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County, Claire did everything and she did it with grace. Her writing-both content and style- was excellent. She wrote everything from heart-tugging direct mail pieces and scripts, to tight brochure copy to detailed plans for new inititatives. She is a great project manager–paying attention to all the details and timelines and never losing sight of the big picture. And she developed good relationships with everyone from people in the media to our clients whom she interviewed for our newsletter.”  ~ Magi Young, Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County

Claire is a skilled marketing communications strategist. She understands the big picture while having the ability to stay on top of the fine details. She is easy to work with and respects the creative process. In addition, she is an excellent writer who knows how to identify and reach her target audience.”  ~ Caitlin Kerk, Kerk Communications

“Claire came highly recommended to me and I now see why. With little knowledge about me and my company and little time, she crafted a spot on copy for my new website. She hit the nail on the head on the first pass and I could not be happier with the outcome.” ~ Vince Gatto, Xceed Staffing

“I had the opportunity to work with Claire on a website project for Catholic Charities. It was a large, challenging endeavor, which required detailed planning, organization and political savvy. Claire offered clear and concrete leadership on the project. She was also able to juggle her supervisory role on the website project with dozens of other responsibilities required by someone in her position. I always found Claire to be positive, customer-focused and quality-minded, despite working in a very understaffed and under funded work environment.”  ~ Farah Bullara, Usability Consultant

“I greatly enjoyed working with Claire Wagner over the years at Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County. Claire was not only good at what she did in her role as Communications Director, she was also very positive, easy going, and worked well with me and my IT team on all collaborative efforts.”  ~ Will Bailey, Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County
