Ciara previously ran The Cat’s Pyjamas Strategic Marketing, which she founded in 2004, doing strategic project and consulting work for clients, and occasionally working in-house on a contract basis. Ciara has founded other ventures such as NicestThing.Com, and in 2013 she set up Flying Leap Publishing to publish her first book, Going Solo on Lake Como.
