Claire Glynn is an accomplished entrepreneur and the founder of an award-winning baby sign programme, which she launched in 2019. Her passion for supporting parents and babies alike led her to create an innovative approach to early communication development, which has helped countless families across the country. When the pandemic hit in 2020, Claire demonstrated remarkable agility by pivoting her business to offer virtual classes. She drove the classes through numerous libraries across the country, allowing families to participate in localised virtual classes from the comfort of their homes. Claire’s commitment to continued professional development and education is evident in her Postgrad Diploma in Communications, as well as her beginnings in a Business Degree while she lived in New Zealand. She continued her education during lockdowns by completing two ISL exams and a business course with the entrepreneur’s academy, receiving her QQI and Signature certificates with merit. With her unwavering commitment to helping families, Claire is a respected leader in her field. Her contributions to the world of baby sign language have been recognised through numerous industry awards, and she continues to inspire and support parents on their journey towards effective communication with their babies.
