Episode 3: Moments with Claude

Welcome back to our podcast Moments. In this episode we host the very popular Claude Silver. Claude holds the second if not the first most important position at VaynerMedia as Gary Vaynerchuk's Chief Heart Officer. With an extensive background in managing people in the world of marketing and advertising she now oversees more than 800 hearts (people) across 5 offices worldwide.

In this episode Claude shares the importance of communication, recognition, rewarding, personalisation, bringing moments to life, creating a winning culture, and much more.

Prior to joining VaynerMedia, Claude held senior leadership posts at both J. Walter Thompson and Publicis in each firm’s London office. In both positions she steered development of brand strategies, agency partnerships, product teams, media, sales, and internal management.

Apart from the marketing and media ecosystem, Claude co-founded and served as Managing Director at GirlsAdventureOUT, a women-focused outdoor adventure enterprise. A lifelong affinity for outdoor pursuits that led her to become a certified Outward Bound instructor.

Hiring and nurturing exceptional talent and leading large-scale global teams that propelled the creation of her current position, one specifically tailored to her capabilities and experience. A native of New York City, she is overjoyed at finally returning to her city of origin.

At VaynerMedia, she oversees anything and everything that has to do with people, including but not limited to: talent management, employee experience and retention, learning and development, coaching, culture, internal communications and recruitment for over 800 employees.
