Annie Blake - post graduate student at London University. An introduction to Carol.
Constantly, I find that Carol has a forward-thinking approach and pioneering grasp on the impacts to individuals of ever-changing business structures and processes. Not only does her genuine interest in keeping abreast of business affairs give her great insight into what's to come, but her quick-thinking, proactive and strategic resolve means that she is often the first to drive forward a project which aims to deal with the effects of change, or equipping an individual for the skills in respect of the anticipation of change.
These new and adaptive projects by Carol therefore enable and prepare an individual to achieve even better results than before because of her constant ability to update information and stay ahead of the game. Because Carol does not just mould people from a business approach, but constantly questions change in business from a more personable perspective,I find that she is able to identify key areas which would otherwise go undetected by alternative services offering their different streams of persona development.
It is this frontier-like quality about her which means she delivers an all-encompassing and evolving service, over other practitioners and companies who can only follow in her foot steps as a result. Because of Carol's proactive nature,I would implicitly trust placing my future business development in her hands at a time when our working environments are constantly evolving,as Carol evolves with them with her help you could do too.

Elizabeth Kuhnke recommends Carol .......
Carol and I both presented at the Conference for Women in Science and Engineering at Cambridge University.

She emphasised the need to dress appropriately, whilst still taking care to express individual personality as part of their personal branding. Carol's mission is for women to 'Look Their Worth' in the professional marketplace and she certainly delivered that message to them all, with her infectious enthusiasm and style.

An Evening with Carol Collins on Dating & Dining Etiquette - Maldon Young Farmers' Club
" We recently had a very captivating talk by Carol Collins on: "The etiquette of Dating and Dining". As the organiser of this event, I must say that Carol really surpassed my already high expectations of her skills and knowledge within this field because the talk was so well suited and tailor-made to the group; she really took into account the ages, the attitudes and the formality of the meeting when planning her talk and kept good contact with myself prior to the meeting, making it her aim to follow my wishes for the format of the evening. Carol was such an engaging, confident and accessible speaker on the night, her talk was highly factual, yet laced with appropriate humour and broken up with interactivity from members of the group and visual aids. The Maldon Young Farmers thoroughly enjoyed Carol's talk and I have received nothing but positive feedback about it from them. The content of Carol's talk was so versatile; not just exploring interesting avenues of dress, image and colour as you would expect from her standing within the image profession, but it also explored themes of manners and personal tastes. I really cannot recommend Carol's services enough; a highly professional service is certainly offered from start to finish." - Annie Blake, Programme Officer, Maldon Young Farmers Club-
