Meet Clara

Clara Maybin - BA Blog Author

A love for general chitchat has brought me into the realm of marketing. From a young age I was always the one getting told off for talking in class and distracting the other students. I enjoyed being part of the school choir and productions and entered any competitions that involved getting your face on a stage.

I love to talk and communicate with others so it was only natural I would enjoy the marketing sphere. Writing for a local newspaper, contributing to a bridal magazine, talking on the radio and doing a little bit of mystery shopping now and again have all enhanced my marketing abilities. There is not much I have not tried in terms of the world of work.

I love to keep up to date on what is happening in the world so I like to read all news sources every day-even though I use the internet everyday, I still like the old tangible newspaper.

As a digital enthusiast, I will be in control of all things social for BA Components so you will be seeing and hearing a lot more from me. I hope to bring BA bang up to date with everything digital.


Keep up to date with clara
