‘My job is to assist you in finding the answer that is right for you. Not the answer that would be right for me.’ – John Dolan

Hello and welcome , I’m so glad you’ve taken the time to pay me a visit.

My website will hopefully give you a small taste of what I am like and how I like to work hence it’s written in my usual forthright and honest manner. There is a little bit about me to help you understand where I’ve come from and what shapes my thinking; some examples of the sort of work I’ve done to give you an idea of what skills and experience I can share with you and your organisation,  plus a few of my favourite quotes sprinkled around so you can get an indication of what drives and inspires me.

When I work with you my goal is to create a personalised experience for you that meets your needs and aspirations and will help you to realise your ambitions.

If you’d like to arrange a free conversation to explore how I can support you and/or your organisation you’ll find all my details on the contact page.

Thank you for stopping by


I have had the pleasure of working with Carol for the last two years and she has been truly an inspirational person to work alongside. Her support, guidance and knowledge on people has been invaluable for myself and my team. Her ability to understand, read and listen to the situation results in providing creditable solutions which has supported our business and resulted in significant improvement in participation and engagement in volunteering. She has provided a range of support materials from coach sessions through to workshops, which are professional, insightful and meets the unique needs of each audience she works with. Carol preparation skills are outstanding and she actively seeks the best advice possible, a consummate professional.

I would recommend Carol without any hesitation.
