Clare Johnson Douglas
Founder & Digital Technology Consultant
Here’s a little background on my experiences, so you can get a feel of who will be helping and supporting you:
I started my professional career in retail, training to become a retail store manager, a loved working with great people who cared about providing customers a good shopping experience. Although, I soon realised that my skills were better suited to helping people use and get the most from technology so I after 5 years in retail I decided to go to university and took a Bsc Honours Degree in Information Technology.
I loved learning new and exciting ways to use technology and to improve how we live our lives. I left university in the middle of the dotcom boom which was amazing and I was lucky enough to work for a global dotcom business implementing global digital marketing strategies.
In 2000 I started my own company and this year we have been in business for 18 years. Running your own business is demanding, scarey, exciting and hugely rewarding- you might not get it right first time but as long as you are willing to learn and keep striving to get it right you will be fine.
My main passion is delivering clients with an integrated and innovative digital solution that meet business objectives; including generating more sales leads, improving business processes and systems, improving customer experiences, and building brand awareness.
I love working with you to create and develop your brand and digital prescence, and then continue to provide ongoing support to see your business flourish.
