Carolyn has great energy and has the ability to easily explain complex topics. She knows how to engage her audience with her enigmatic style and stage presence. It was a pleasure to be a part of the Diversity and Inclusion panel at BSAC with Carolyn. She is a commercially seasoned professional and brings to the table her deep knowledge and industry insights.
In my capacity as Managing Editor for The Economist Intelligence Unit, I've interviewed Carolyn for two different studies: one on the future of work with a specific lens on technology and the aging population, and a second on cybersecurity and digital transformation in APAC. I also featured her in a video and invited her to speak at the 2018 Economist Longevity Summit in Singapore. Carolyn has great energy and is very knowledgeable and articulate on these subjects. She's also a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her for public speaking and expert interviews.
