Claire Diaz-Ortiz

Author, Technology Innovator and Co-founder of Hope Runs

Claire Díaz-Ortiz is an author, speaker, and technology innovator who has been named one of the 100 Most Creative People in Business by Fast Company. Claire was an early employee at Twitter, where she was hired to lead corporate social innovation.

In Díaz-Ortiz’s work, she has been called everything from “The Woman Who Got the Pope on Twitter” (Wired) and “Twitter’s Pontiff Recruitment Chief” (The Washington Post) to a “Force for Good” (Forbes) and one of the “Ten Most Generous in Social Media” (Fast Company). Claire is also known for the precarious honor of being the first to live-tweet her own child’s birth. (Hello, @Lucia!)

Díaz-Ortiz is the author of several books, including Twitter for Good: Change the World One Tweet at a Time, which explores the TWEET model framework she is known for developing to help organizations and individuals best excel on Twitter. She has also written Greater Expectations: Succeed (and Stay Sane) in an On-Demand, All-Access, Always-On Age, Hope Runs: An American Tourist, A Kenyan Boy, a Journey of Redemption, and a handful of ebooks.

She is a frequent international speaker on business, innovation and social media, and has been invited to deliver trainings and keynotes at such varied organizations and events as The United Nations, Verizon, Toyota, South by Southwest, TEDx, The Mashable Social Good Summit, and many others. (Go here to find out more about her speaking engagements.)

Her popular business blog boasts more than 100,000 monthly readers. She is also a LinkedIn Influencer, one of 300 hundred global leaders chosen to provide original content for the LinkedIn platform.

Díaz-Ortiz holds an MBA from Oxford University, where she was a Skoll Foundation Scholar for Social Entrepreneurship, and has a BA and an MA in Anthropology from Stanford University.

She is the co-founder of Hope Runs, a non-profit organisation operating in AIDS orphanages in Kenya.

Díaz-Ortiz has lived on four continents and travelled to more than fifty countries. She used to run marathons, but now it makes her tired just to think about that. She is a foster mom to a Kenyan teen, an extreme introvert, and a crazy reader (she reads 200 books a year). She also boasts an unnatural passion for tiny houses and rooibos tea.

She has appeared widely in major television and print news sources like CNN, BBC, Time, Newsweek, the New York Times, Good Morning America, The Today Show, the Washington Post, Fortune, Forbes, Wired and many others.
