Welcome to Clairemont Communications

Clairemont Communications was born out of a moment of clarity. It was truly one of those defining moments… convinced that no one loves this profession as much as I do, no one is as passionate as I am about teaching other communications professionals how to deliver the highest quality of client service, and realizing that few agencies have mastered a tactics-agnostic approach to building client strategies, it became crystal clear what I had to do. Now is the time! This is the opportunity to do not just great, not just outstanding, but monumental work for our clients. Clarity in vision + the promise of monumental results … This is Clairemont Communications.

So today I start a new venture, taking with me the incredible experience of building a successful business within the world’s largest PR agency. The safety net of a global network was an amazing comfort, and along the way I gained a great deal of confidence that has prepared me for this day.

Today is about doing what I do well… starting something from the ground up and working hard to grow it into something wildly successful. Along with the blood, sweat and tears that goes into anything worthwhile, there’s going to be a lot of gut-splitting laughter, random dancing and an occasional sharing of irreverent thoughts. Consider yourself cordially invited to participate. Oh won’t you join us?

    What great comments and encouragement! Thank you!

    Tina, it’s nice to hear from you. I feel reunited! Let’s stay in touch.

    I just want to cry. This is the start of an incredible journey and I am so happy for you! You are the hardest working woman I know and you should be putting all of that blood, sweat and tears into building your own company. If there is anything that I can do for you, just name it. I have become the queen of networking in RTP you know… just sayin. @striving4more

    Dana, I’m so THRILLED that you’ve taken this step! You’ll be a fantastic business owner. You’ve got the “top practitioner” thing sewed up, so welcome to your new adventure. Starting a company during a recession takes courage and confidence. You’ve got both in spades. Call if you ever need to chat. You know where to find me!
