Clare Gillbanks



Director at Gemini Innovations Ltd


Hi, thanks for visiting my profile. I am a freelance project manager with a marketing and operations background. I work with business owners who have hit the point where they need to outsource some functions of their business to add capacity but don't have a need for a full time rescource. Projects I look after cover the functions of marketing, events and operations. I offer a bespoke, hands on service that is tailored to the client's needs and business objectives supported by my team of associates and VAs (virtual assistants). I plan and manage niche events for consultants, trainers and individuals who wish to add events to their marketing mix or who just have an occasion to celebrate. Private hosted dinners are a speciality for those who wish to bring their clients and prospects together in a room in a different way. When I became a BlackStar Foundation member in 2008 I looked after the regular calendar of London BlackStar Days and social events - it was a great way to meet other BlackStars and build good relationships, some of which I hope will last a lifetime. Before I started Gemini Innovations, I organised singles events in London having started my first company Meet at Last in 2003. With over a dozen weddings and countless success stories it's been a great legacy helping people find lasting relationships and one I am extremely proud of. I also offered 121 advice as The Dating Angel. In my corporate life spanning the first decade of my career, I was a direct marketing manager for Sainsbury's and have worked agency side in various interactive marketing agencies with blue chip clients. We have a family business in Liverpool called Posh Pads offering Luxury Serviced apartments which I have been involved in the past. In 2010 I took a role as Chief Operating Officer at the online outplacement start up MyWorkSearch for 12 months and managed a great team of sales people. I am currently learning the ropes as a property investor and developer and would love the opportunity to work with other investors and entrepreneurs in the industry. I enjoy the possibilities building a property portolio promises and the challenges the business of managing property presents. On a more personal level, I live in central London and enjoy all the usual things city life has to offer from socialising and dancing (modern jive) to exploring the sites. When I do get some free time I like to catch up with friends, discover a great new restaurant, grab a movie or just wander around the park. I look forward to connecting with you.
