Clayborn is more than just a name, a brand or a business. It is in itself a family affair, inspired by a linguist, wordsmith, and journalist who wrote under the pseudonym Mike Clayborn, an anagram of his real name. His passion for language and communications was passed on to his daughter, Sarah Mackley, who established Clayborn Communications in 2010.

Clayborn is built on strong values which are the foundations of all its activities. We believe it is possible to combine a personalised approach with an efficient, responsive service. We take advantage of both a local presence and an international outlook and embrace the capacity of technology to facilitate effective communications. Above all, we value sustained client relationships and the consequent quality of exchange.
