Claremont Communications join us for the first Purpose Talk of the year
Last week, we were kindly joined by the Founder and Managing Director of Claremont, a social communications agency, for our first Purpose Talk of the year.
In November 2008, Ben Caspersz opened the doors to his small start-up in New Cross Gate and six years later with 20 staff in Central London, Claremont has now become PR Week’s Specialist consultancy of the year 2014.
Ben shared his experiences of being inspired by his grandmother when he was young to start his own business, and the challenging obstacles he had to overcome during the recession.
By building good relationships and always aspiring to ‘do the right thing right’, Claremont have built a successful business focussed on tackling social issues, by using social technologies, to help drive social change.
It was a fantastic talk by Ben, with some interesting insights and challenges familiar to us as an SME. We look forward to working closely with our partners Claremont on some exciting projects in the future.
