Carolyn has a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a Trained Teachers Certificate. She has worked in primary schools, tutored adults in Family Planning, and managed both compliance and soft skills training in a large cluster of petrol stations. Carolyn is the co-owner of Rapid Results alongside Tony, and is excited by the positive changes made within companies after experiencing workshops that are tailored to meet their needs. Coming from a teaching background she understands the importance of explaining the “why” we do things – not just the “how”.
Carolyn is a firm believer in Richard Branson’s quote; “If you look after your staff, they’ll look after your customers. It’s that simple.” There is a clear correlation between the training investment put into employees and the value received in return.
After 15 years working in an administrative role, Carolyn is aware of the challenges faced when releasing staff for training. She is very interested in pursuing different ways of providing on-going learning in the workplace and recognises the benefits in online eLearning. However her years working in education has her convinced that the best way to inspire, educate and ensure that new learnings are embedded is through interactive workshops presented face-to-face.
Carolyn is a very keen runner who took up marathon running in her mid-40’s. She has completed eight marathons and is hoping to run the Berlin Marathon in 2016. A keen traveller also, she has enjoyed many trips to China and has learnt to understand Mandarin – and is occasionally understood when she attempts to speak it! Carolyn is happily married to Tony and believes that their best achievement is their three adult children who they take great pride in and delight in spending time with – even though they have now been replaced in the home by two Birman cats.
