KEYNOTE SPEAKER, BUSINESS SPEAKER, COMPERE, MC, CONFERENCE SPEAKER
Caroline doesn’t just come in and deliver a ‘canned’ keynote talk!
Experienced and Relatable
She takes time to understand your event objectives, your audience, what they want to know and how you want them to feel. Whether she’s opening, closing or compering your event, she expertly weaves in your conference theme and topics. With a broad and deep background working with clients across many different industries, the public service and non-profit sector, she’s quick to grasp the specialised world and language of your audience.
She connects easily with small groups and large audiences – creating many ‘light bulb’ moments and vital take-aways.
Running your conference to schedule, adapting to unforseen events (eg a speaker who doesn’t show) and putting presenters at ease are vital and Caroline does all this and more with ease. She tactfully and effectively winds up sessions that threaten to run overtime and maintains the energy and interest of attendees.
Keep your audience engaged
Moderating Q&A sessions, facilitating panel discussions and small group break-out sessions, Caroline ensures maximum audience interaction and participation.
Part of your team
When you’re planning your event, Caroline becomes part of your team. Working with you every step of the way, she’s as committed as you are to ensuring that participants and organisers alike remember your event long after it’s over, for all the right reasons.
“I was interested to meet Caroline at a group retreat and to watch her in action as she made a life-coaching presentation to us. I was extremely impressed with how she made the session so productive for everyone, and how she put into practice the fundamentals of her craft so clearly, concisely and meaningfully.
I don’t think there was anyone in the room who remained untouched and unchanged by that experience. She made everyone think about their lives, their reality and their goals, and helped us all realise how simply we could put changes incrementally in place to effect a transition from what is, to what we’d like to be. The process proved inspiring for all of us, and we all agreed it had been an amazing experience.
I’ve had sessions since with other coaches and often been terribly disappointed. They can become so caught up in their own experiences, jargon, sources and meaningless acronyms that the time spent with them feels utterly wasted. With Caroline, on the other hand, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for any life, lifestyle, career or executive coaching role. I feel very fortunate to have had the benefit of her time, experience, empathy and wisdom.”

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT CAROLINE’S TALKS:
” What makes Caroline’s talks different is that they stay with you long after the event is over! What I took away from her address has been professionally and personally invaluable, from the moment I walked out of our sales conference”.
‘You really helped me recognise my innermost strengths and the values that make me the person I am. Thank you. I had the thrival kit in me all the time – you tapped it out.”
“Very much enjoyed this PD. I now have lots of positive ideas to deal with anything I’m thrown. Thank you :-).”
“Easy to listen to facilitator, easy to grasp, nice group work sessions. This has been a wonderful day and I really believe you have given us the direction to go forward.”
“Thank you for making me think, react, question, laugh and cry. You’ve given me positive changes to implement and choose to do.”
“Caroline, we had a great time with you at Hanging Rock on Monday morning. Your start to the meeting allowed us to really set the scene positively and empower the Team. Thanks for your presentation and the time you took to prepare it with us. You struck many chords with the teams and we took away great new ways to think about ‘stuff’.
The fact the team was referring back to your words after you left was a great sign of impact. I liked the Yodaism – ‘Do or Not Do. There is no try’ and the ‘Be Do Have’ approach. I’ll incorporate both into my field day/pre customer calls with my team.”
