In 1999, to celebrate her first decade in business, Clara Northcott hosted a fundraiser entitled Decadesign, which promoted Canadian fashion and benefited the Toronto Fashion Incubator. The event, which successfully promoted the work of Canada’s talented young designers, garnered much publicity, including recognition from Ontario’s Lieutenant Governor at the time, Hilary Weston.

“Since 1999, Diageo has enjoyed a long and fruitful partnership with Northcott Communications Inc. NCI has managed many public relations projects for our wide portfolio of premium beverage alcohol brands. Clara’s success in business is directly linked to her established relationships with many media outlets across Canada and her personal characteristics of dedication, professionalism and thoroughness.”
