Claire Gibbons

Claire Gibbons is a freelance consultant, working mainly across the HE and charity sectors on content marketing, web and digital improvement projects, and digital governance audits and strategies.

Prior to going freelance in the summer of 2016, Claire headed up the Web and Print teams at the University of Bradford, and was responsible for the University’s website and printed materials, leading two small teams of web and print specialists for many years, and through many a change.

Claire’s general mantra in life is ‘user first’ especially across all aspects of the student journey, and is always on the look-out for new collaborations and initiatives to enable teams, and individuals to work better together to improve the user journey.

Claire has been involved in IWMW events since attending her first IWMW event in 2000, where the millennium bug failed to bite, and has been a regular speaker and workshop leader at many IWMW events since. Last year Claire ran a masterclass on Leadership, Governance and Change – a topic that is working its way up the agendas of many a HE institution. Claire became co-chair of the IWMW Advisory Group and event in 2017 in order to support the long-term sustainability of the IWMW event. Claire is again co-chair with Brian Kelly for the IWMW 2018 event.

As co-chair of the IWMW 2018 Advisory Group Claire is keen to get sponsors and supporters on board with the sustainability and affordability of the event, and to ensure that IWMW is welcoming and supportive to all.
