Caroline is patient, flexible, creative, organised and passionate and her commitment to the team and the programme was outstanding.”

Sile Cosgrave

HR Manager, World Fuel Services

“Caroline is an extraordinary coach. We have only met face-to-face on 1 occasion and yet she has been invaluable in helping me transition to a more senior role, where I needed to adapt and learn new things to focus on what is important. Her ability to listen, understand and with a few key questions trigger thoughts and actions that are needed has been of great help to me.”

Steve Dalton

Vice President Research & Development, Sealed Air

“Just a quick email to say a huge thank you and show my appreciation for the past three very valuable days training. This is the most relevant and practical course I have ever attended and this was undoubtedly made even better by having such an engaging facilitator. I think all those attending have bonded extremely well and we have all committed to keeping this “alive” through on-going contact and sharing of ideas, experiences and best practice. It is a privilege to be part of these training sessions and for that I am extremely grateful for being selected to take part.”
