"I have observed, and experienced first-hand, Caroline’s approach with people. She challenges, motivates and inspires. With Caroline’s support it’s possible to become more self-aware, more confident and more effective – as a leader and as a person."
"Caroline has the uncanny knack of asking exactly the right question that gets to the heart of the issue at hand, whatever that may be. Or at least, you think it is uncanny until you realise that it is based on the excellent knowledge she will have developed of you, your team, your company and your industry, which allows her to be so perceptive."
"Caroline is the only person I have ever met with such a high level of intuition. She can gain a deep understanding of someone within a short time of meeting them. Working with Caroline gives genuine value."
"If you need someone to act as your personal sounding board, mentor, coach, fellow experienced business leader then work with Caroline. If you need to get to the roots of the problem and not just address the effects – work with Caroline. She is challenging, supportive, available 24/7 and is 100% trustworthy with highly confidential and sensitive information."
"Caroline’s counsel to each of my Business Unit Directors through a period of acquisition and re-integration, was invaluable. She quickly got to grips with the complexities of a fast-paced global IT Distribution environment and provided targeted support and advice to aid the transition process. She is both astute and pragmatic and will willingly tackle difficult situations (and people) with skill and flair. I recommend her highly."
"Caroline is experienced at working with leaders. The results of her individual coaching have been visible and commented on positively by Executive Board members – leading to repeat and additional work from those who have seen the impact she can have on individual performance. Caroline is also experienced across many business sectors, including highly regulated commercial environments, and is able to bring her knowledge to a wide variety of scenarios. I have no hesitation in recommending Caroline."
"Caroline was recommended to me and I could not be more pleased with the resulting relationship and demonstrable results. From her first meetings in London and Dubai followed by numerous visits to Riyadh she dedicated herself to the business. As CEO, I gained invaluable insights into my role. I was also impressed with the highly focused and dedicated approach Caroline adopted with my Vice-Presidents and Directors. I have full trust and confidence in her wisdom and sincerity."
"Caroline got to grips with our manufacturing business from ‘Day One’. She translated corporate goals into local delivery and worked with my Executive Team to drive home the leadership requirements associated with our Business Transformation. She brings energy, commitment and insight to any international business setting."
"Introduced via a strong board-level referral, I worked with Caroline initially, at Littlewoods PLC. She provided my team of experienced HR Account Managers and I with exceptional support throughout a significant Business Transformation programme. I had no hesitation asking Caroline to work with me again at Celtic FC. I would highly recommend Caroline’s services."
"Caroline facilitated our Strategy Day with enthusiasm, commitment and insight. She listened to my requirements; engaged with Board members in advance and guided us through the process. Caroline is an expert facilitator. She is a strategic thinker who adopts a professional, no nonsense approach with warmth and good humour. Under her direction, the day was engaging and results-orientated. She ensured that every voice around the table was heard. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending Caroline to act as a Facilitator for Board-level Strategy events."
"I have worked and continue to work with Caroline Newns in the areas of strategy development and implementation. The help, support and advice she has given – all based on her extensive knowledge and experience – has been and remains invaluable. I cannot recommend her highly enough…"
