During a successful career in marketing Claire has helped to guide a number of businesses including well known high street names Mamas & Papas, Argos and Ocado.

In 2012 Claire left the corporate world to launch IndiaCoco, an online retail outlet that specialises in handpicked British designed childrenswear. Claire quickly expanded her footprint establishing a partnership with Yorkshire based Blacker Hall Farm Shop before opening her first high street store in Wakefield.

Renowned for being an experienced and dynamic marketer and award winning business woman, Claire will offer guests an insight into the world of online retail and marketing, whilst at the same time sharing her experiences and knowledge of how to run a successful business within Wakefield.

Graham Howarth founding member of Cognitiv comments: “We want to shout about the experience and expertise of the many organisations that sit within the creative, digital and IT sector and Claire is a great example of this. Having Claire at the event will inspire attendees and also help us to showcase the promotional opportunities Cognitiv holds for the many people involved in these sectors across the district.”

Cognitiv, a new industry group established to place the spotlight firmly on Wakefield’s creative, digital and IT sector, will officially launch at The Hepworth Wakefield on Wednesday 2nd April from 5.30pm.
