An authority on brave leadership and founder of The Brave Initiative, Carol has been educating, empowering, and entertaining audiences internationally for almost a decade. She is committed to helping building braver workplace cultures - where every person is brave enough to bring all of who they are to all of what they do. She holds a BFA in Theatre Performance, an MA in Communication, two postgraduate certificates in coaching and mentoring, and has worked with numerous Fortune 500 companies, International Associations, and thousands of leaders and individuals to get their brave on. Whether it be asking for a raise or promotion, nailing a presentation, or climbing Africa’s highest peak, her clients attribute her insights and inspiration to achieving what they never thought possible. She is also a dedicated mental health advocate, and founder of Brave Beyond Diagnosis, a community dedicated to empowering women living with mental health challenges. In speaking openly about her own experience with mental illness, she makes it okay to not be okay. Her work on creating safer spaces in the workplace, and inviting braver conversations around mental health, is changing the landscape on this important topic. Carol is a published author, been featured in numerous magazines and podcasts, and is a returning guest expert on Rogers TV in Canada. Having lived and worked in 16 countries including Ashrams in India and vans in New Zealand, rocked dreadlocks in Thailand and shaved her head for breast cancer, she certainly walks her talk and brings a global perspective to all she does. When she’s not traveling or speaking on stage, you can find her volunteering as a bereavement facilitator, training for her next triathlon, or practicing her serious carpool karaoke game!
