Meet Claire Wilson: The Real Adventure Unlimited Q&A

Meet Claire Wilson

NOW MEET: Claire Wilson

We want to introduce you to the talented people who work here at The Real Adventure Unlimited. When Claire’s not spinning plates or keeping the lions at bay, she can be found enjoying brunch in one of the many wonderful places in Bristol.

Name: Claire Wilson
Job Title: Project Manager
Joined: July 2016

There are so many amazing brunches in Bristol and I spend most of my weekends reviewing the latest places.

What does your job involve?

It’s a bit like being a circus performer – as a Project Manager I spin multiple plates while looking in to my crystal ball for any potential pitfalls or opportunities, drinking tea with one hand and keeping the scope creep lions at bay with the other.

What is your favourite thing in or about the office?

The people who work here. They are a creative, kind and infinitely interesting bunch to work with.

“I went to the same school as the original (and best) James Bond, Sir Sean Connery. Shmashing.”

Claire on: Tell us one interesting fact about you

What aspect of CRM excites you the most?

Being able to create relevant, insightful content is really exciting – but I’m also really interested in how the use of data is evolving, and the responsibility we have in treating people’s data with respect and care. It’s incredibly important, and it’s a top priority here which is very inspiring.

If someone was to visit Bristol, what should they see and do in a day and by night?

By day – there are so many amazing brunches in Bristol and I spend most of my weekends reviewing the latest places. My top three recommendations would be: Rosemarino in Clifton, Ceres in Stokes Croft, and, for something quick, dirty and delicious, the Brunel’s Buttery on the Harbourside.

By night – once brunch has worn off head to dinner at Bell’s Diner or No Man’s Grace, then head out for a spot of culture at the Alma Tavern Theatre, a great spot for some new and exciting performances (and a pint or two).

Tell us about your greatest adventure

Before joining The Real Adventure, my boyfriend and I packed in our jobs and went travelling in Central and South America for a year. We trained to be scuba divers, helped bring abandoned sloths back to health, and climbed many a mountain while being pursued by gangs of monkeys and torrential rain storms. Returning to the real world was... a shock.
You’re in a lift with the CMO of a big company; what are your go-to client examples of what The Real Adventure Unlimited does?

The Aptaclub Christmas Wishes was a beautiful campaign and a lot of fun to work on.

Milupa Germany’s ‘Blubbern’ campaign was fresh and fun, and a real example of how trying something a bit off the wall can engage people.

You have access to the agency stereo. Which three songs do you put on?
  • Autumn Bells – Gidge
  • Islands in the Stream – Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers
  • No Diggity – Blackstreet

If you were MD for the day, what one rule would you introduce?

Fancy Dress Days – make meetings all the more exciting by dressing everyone as their favourite cartoon character.
