She is a successful speaker in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Globally and a C-Suite business mentor, helping senior Executives to perform well under pressure and communicate effectively. 

Her charismatic style and ability to engage emotionally with audiences has made her a sought-after business speaker working with equal success in the contrasting cultures of the UK, the Middle East and other countries around the world, delivering keynote addresses and master classes at both conferences and seminars.

In 1998, Carole, on behalf of ISMA, established National Stress Awareness Day (NSAD), which is ISMA’s flagship annual event. In 2017, NSAD was renamed International Stress Awareness Day (INSAD), reflecting its adoption now internationally.
