Since the launch of g6, Claire has had the pleasure of working with a variety of exceptional businesses and people. A small selection has shared their thoughts on working with her:

“Claire took our business to a completely different level. Her business knowledge and energy was incredible. Claire came on board as a Growth Partner to develop our strategic business plan. From day one, we immediately had direction and an action plan. We established a new brand presence (online and offline) and started to achieve the goals (and dreams) we always thought about. 

Claire got us on a profitable journey that led to launching our very own franchise model (led by Claire's hands on approach).

We are excited about our future and can’t thank Claire enough for her passion, commitment and strategic vision.”

Brian Shields
Owner & Managing Director, Motorhome World Ltd.

“I got in touch with Claire following a recommendation from a friend and it’s the best recommendation yet! Being an established company, we were looking to establish our brand. Claire made this process not only easy but enjoyable. From our first meeting she fully grasped the business, what we’re all about and what we were trying to do. Claire is fantastic at getting to the core of the business and communicating it in a way that suits the tone of the business. Claire has been and continues to be a trusted Growth Partner in many aspects of our business and I can’t recommend Claire & g6 enough.”

Callum Nisbet
Director, Swilcan Financial Partners Ltd.

“Amazing to work with Claire and her impeccable project management skills. Claire’s work is of a very high standard and always delivered on time. From the initial consultation to the final products, her professional service and attention to detail was first class. I highly recommend Claire.”

Felix Otiji
Chief Financial Officer, Island Naturals Ltd., Barbados

“Can’t honestly recommend Claire and g6 highly enough! From her business passion to her ongoing professional coaching, she really does care about the success of what you do.

Bravehearts recently won a national business award and Claire planned, managed and executed all of our promotion around this. The attention we received on social media and in the local press was incredible! Huge thank you from me and excited for our future work together.”

Steven McMillan
Owner, Bravehearts Boxing Gym (Scotland’s Boxing Gym of the Year 2022/23)

“Claire at g6 was amazing to work with, she helped put me at ease and her professional manner shone through. Claire helped get my business live by being my invaluable Growth Partner – from the initial thoughts and concepts to website and strategy and later the social media launch. Claire was always available to run ideas past and get advice which helped me get ready to launch the new business. Her ongoing mentoring since launch has helped me and my company.

I would recommend Claire and g6 to anyone.”

Martin Russell
Owner & Managing Director, Assurgent Ltd.

“Claire completely transformed my business! From our first conversation to the last, she was always there. Claire held me accountable to my business goals, kept me motivated and helped to turn my passion into real profit. I now work smarter and look forward to the future and what that will bring. I honestly (and I mean this) can’t thank Claire enough.”

Daniel Carter
Owner, Precision Rehab

“I contacted Claire at g6 for assistance with all things social media and for advice on preparing for an award interview and improving my public speaking at networking events. Claire was an absolute godsend for me and my business, explaining and showing clearly how to tidy up my social media sites, how to present myself and how best to prepare for public speaking and the award interview. I can’t thank her enough for her assistance. She has inspired me to much greater things and given me the confidence to present myself and my company clearly and concisely. I’d highly recommend her services to anyone who finds themselves a bit lost or unsure as to how to place themselves or their business in the public domain. Thank you Claire!”

Carol Dickie
Owner & Managing Director, Ardanach Lettings Ltd.

“A friend recommended Claire, so I thought about asking her for help. I initially asked to meet with her to discuss ideas on how to expand my business. She was extremely well prepared, listened well and was very engaging to chat with. I decided right there and then to work with Claire on my business. She continually brought great ideas to the table and helped me with the world of social media. I couldn’t recommend Claire, and g6 enough!”

Connor Russell
Owner, The Engine Room

“Working with Claire and g6 has been a huge help in establishing our practice. Her knowledge of the health industry, and extraordinary diligence were invaluable in the early stages of our work, and her ongoing support has helped us plan for the future. I would highly recommend g6 and Claire Smillie”

Paul Bell
Director, The Anchor Practice

“We recently employed the services of g6 to help us with a re-branding exercise. Claire was a pleasure to work with, showing fantastic knowledge and displaying a positive attitude towards everything we discussed. We would highly recommend g6 to anyone who needs help getting their proposition out there.”

Kenny Findlay
Managing Director, Findlay & Co. Financial Services Ltd.

“Being new to business, Claire made things simple which was great. She supported me from the first day I asked her for help. She made me feel comfortable and gave my business the time it needed to make it live and operational.

I would highly recommend Claire and g6…..you won’t regret it!”

Bryan Close
Owner of CloseCallsPro

“My first meeting with Claire was like a weight of my shoulders as she took the time to listen to my ideas and expanded on them. Claire gave me direction and clear objectives on how to reach my business goals.

I honestly can’t recommend Claire enough as she oozes professionalism and offers a high quality service. She even continues to answer any questions I have – that’s how much she cares about the growth of your business.”

Liam Healy
Owner and Head Coach of OWNNIT

“Claire is an incredibly passionate, knowledgeable and hard-working business professional. I have worked with Claire on several high-profile projects, many attracting local, national and international attention, and I was always impressed by her impeccable communications skills, business acumen and strategic vision. No matter what the task at hand is, Claire always looks at the bigger picture, not only concentrating on protecting and promoting the reputation of the organisation, but that of everyone who works there too.

Claire mentored me and helped me gain confidence in myself and my abilities, helping me flourish into a competent communications professional. I have no doubt that I wouldn’t be where I am now without Claire’s wise counsel. To this day, Claire remains one of the few people I will go to for both personal and professional advice.”

Andrew Johnson
Communications Manager (U.K Public Sector)

“I was blown away by how professional and proactive Claire was from the get-go. Not only was she full of ideas on ways to help me improve and grow my own business, she had researched my business before we even had our first meeting and presented so many suggestions. This saved us both time, and I was able to act straight away. I have spent money and time with business coaches in the past, and I can say, with confidence, that I got more from Claire in one session than I did over two months of working with other specialists. I will definitely be working with Claire again. 5 Stars for Claire & 5 stars for g6.”

Jill Ritchie
Influencer & Owner, JR Global Life Coaching

“Claire provided us with a very professional and reliable service. She delivered communications advice, business coaching and worked on our social media content/branding – allowing us to reach a wider target audience. I will definitely recommend Claire to all my networking contacts going forward.”

Raj Kumar

“Claire is an impressive all round professional. She has effective influencing skills and can persuade business leaders to embrace her plans in order to deliver positive change. Claire has extensive experience of corporate communications and media relations, including social media. She is unflappable at times of crisis and works well with people at all levels to devise innovative strategies to protect the reputation of organisations. ”
