Never underestimate what you can achieve with clarity, focus and self-belief.

As an ICF certified (PCC) Executive Coach, Carol empowers more female leaders to move up and excel in senior roles. She enjoys working with individuals who want to make a bigger impact in meaningful, rewarding careers that are true to who they are.

She brings 23 years of senior corporate experience to help leaders shift their mindset and behaviours, critical for success at higher elevation roles. For some, that also involves helping them quieten their inner critic so they can play their best game as their authentic, confident selves with less stress and anxiety.

Carol is a firm believer that you are most successful when you lead from the core of who you are.

Having navigated her own career transition, she finds working with leaders to define their ‘what’s next’ deeply satisfying. She helps them reconnect to their deeper sense of purpose and chart a road map to greater fulfilment as they define and live their definition of success.

She has led large, culturally diverse global and regional teams; and knows from experience, that a rewarding and meaningful career requires clear intentions and deliberate choices.

Originally from Singapore, Carol has lived and worked in the US and Japan; and together with her husband, currently considers Australia home. She enjoys road trips, movie nights and finds baking extremely messy and oddly meditative.
