Claudia Tinnirello is an international bestselling author and the CEO and founder of Sophisticated Cloud Ltd. She is a professional SquareSpace website builder, UX expert and enthusiastic public speaker. Originally from Sicily, Italy, Claudia arrived in England in 2005 with very little knowledge of the English language, no accommodation and only the prospect of a job. Through hard work and determination Claudia got her first job in a call centre and put herself through night school to learn English. Always learning she progressed through the corporate ranks to become a digital marketing specialist. Claudia has always seen the potential in situations and not viewed limits as a setback.
After 4 redundancies Claudia knew it was time to fulfil her entrepreneurial dreams. Sophisticated Cloud Ltd was born in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, at a time of economic and social anxiety. Working with small businesses across the globe who want a beautiful, one-of-a-kind responsive website that is SEO optimised and compatible on all devices. It is her mission to help a million people to be heard and seen by having a robust online presence by 2025.
In less than a year Sophisticated Cloud Ltd has clients around the world and has just opened an office in New York. In November last year Claudia’s book collaboration ‘Unchain Your Authentic Soul’ reached the number 1 position on Amazon. It shares her real life experience of fear and doubts to inspire women to take chances, be brave and start to truly love the life you live. Claudia has recently become president of her local Toastmasters International Club, an example of not letting being an outsider become a barrier to stop you aiming high.
