Claire Stokoe

She has worked hands-on with social media for the past 7 years, cutting her teeth at Brighton agencies Leapfrogg and Freshegg and is now working for Mediaworks in Gateshead.

Claire has spent years developing a huge online network and getting to know the less commercialized networks such as Reddit and Stumbleupon, which she utilizes to create buzz around clients brands.

In her own words “Stories and a way to share them are what people want, without these a brand will be dead in the water in the future”

Working closely with forum groups, power users, promoters, SEO’s, writers and infographic designers, Claire has brought her passion for telling stories into a hard-edged and commercially valuable environment.
