Talking Points

Embodying More Than One Thing - Courageously Embracing our Wholeness.

Throughout her career and in varying industries, Caroline has achieved many accolades. She has done so while also overcoming complex abuse and trauma. Even though she has found this challenging at times, Caroline knows there is a deep sense of homecoming when we can embrace being more than one thing and share the highlight reel of our lives and our darker moments, knowing they are our teachers too.

In this keynote, Caroline shares how we can embrace our multidimensional selves and be more than one thing and in turn, create a brave example for others to do the same. This keynote is an authentic and liberating presentation that is best suited to audiences looking to be inspired to embrace their courage and bravery through the power of showing up as their whole selves, both in the workplace and throughout other areas of their lives.

Survivor Support - Creating the Scaffolding for Ongoing Healing

People who identify as survivors already have the significant skills and courage to overcome challenges in their lives. They have proven this to themselves and others by surviving and accomplishing all they have - even when they have walked alone. As human beings, however, we are stronger in life when we walk together and survivor supporters play a vital role in how survivors can continue to move from surviving to thriving. In this keynote, Caroline covers the key elements required for survivors to gain ongoing support from those around them as they move with their trauma and transform beyond it.

Sharing her lived experience, Caroline identifies what survivor support has looked like for her and how she has seen it modelled successfully for survivors within her community. This keynote is a vulnerable and heartening presentation that is best suited to community groups and organisations seeking lived experience storytellers to further enhance their work in supporting survivors through empathy and human connection.

Survivor Leadership & Allyship

Within the framework of survivor support, there are ways we can all learn to be better leaders and allies. As survivors walk through life and tackle the journey in front of them, there are allies walking beside them as leaders, mentors and friends. Caroline believes the position of where an ally chooses to walk, is key to the success of the allyship and in this keynote, she opens up about her lived experience with allies including an unexpected moment with her son who taught her the importance of walking beside rather than in front or behind.

This keynote is an inspiring and motivational presentation that would be suited to audiences who are looking to enhance their leadership and mentoring abilities, elements of the presentation can be applied at all stages of the leadership journey through the power of allyship and support.

Boundaries - How to Create and Maintain Your Island.

Boundaries form a vital part of survivor self-care and self-preservation, especially for those who have experienced trauma and significant moments of life hardship.

As survivors gain further insight into the people in their lives that have caused harm or may not align with their values, they are challenged by societal expectations to maintain those relationships at the detriment of their mental health and personal well-being.
Caroline believes that by creating and maintaining boundaries, communicating them clearly and holding them in place, survivors can create a space of safety that enables them to thrive. In this keynote, Caroline shares how she has developed and maintained her boundaries by creating her ‘Island’ and how this has formed a vital framework to maintain her ongoing healing as both a survivor and as an ongoing act of deep personal resilience and self-love. This keynote is a constructive yet vulnerable presentation suited to audiences of women who are wanting to create clear boundaries and communication tools to improve their self-care and self-preservation.

The presentation can be adapted to smaller audiences and women's circles as well as delivered as a keynote for larger event settings.

Life Beyond - Reframing Resilience into Purpose

As an accomplished events expert, successful entrepreneur, speaker, author and model, Caroline is proof that there is life beyond trauma. Over her lifetime she has reframed her resilience and identified key elements of what it takes to move beyond anything that has happened to us to a place of personal power.

As a believer in the concept that ‘you can't be what you can't see’ Caroline takes every opportunity she can to share her lived experience as a woman of colour, immigrant, entrepreneur and trauma survivor, to demonstrate what life can be like beyond trauma in the hope that by sharing her journey and insights she can inspire and encourage others to find their purpose in the depths of their resilience. This keynote is a highly practical and inspirational presentation especially suited to audiences of businesswomen who want to have their passion for their work ignited through the power of story and resilience.
