Why work with ME?
The 'Sherpa you need to climb your Everest'
A few years ago I was facilitating a Strategic Planning Workshop for CEO Tony, one of my Executive Coaching Clients. As I joined the coffee queue at morning tea, Tony was standing in front of me, chatting to Mark, when Mark asked him, "So, if Caroline's your Executive Coach, how does she help you?"
Tony thought for a moment and then replied, "She's the Sherpa you need to climb your Everest. She won't climb it for you but she travels alongside you - showing you the short cuts, carrying your pack when you get tired and supporting you every step of the way - until you reach the summit." Now that sounded like a great way to describe what I do!
If you're tired of the struggle and ready to find an easier way, I'll help you break through the challenges to successfully break through and reach the summit of your 'Everest'. - whatever that happens to be for you.

Here's what our clients say
Very insightful and honest yet pragmatic and resourceful
I got a tremendous amount of knowledge and understanding of my personal strengths and weaknesses from my time with Caroline. I found her to be very insightful and honest yet pragmatic and resourceful with the advice and coaching provided. I take a lot of wisdom and perspective from the time spent. I am a better person for it.
I always walked away from our sessions feeling empowered and confident.
Before I started coaching with Caroline, I wasn’t enjoying my role and could see no light at the end of the tunnel. By the time I completed the P2R Executive Career and Leadership coaching program, everything had changed! By challenging my thinking, I was able to approach seemingly insurmountable problems in a way that significantly improved my work and relationships. I was then able to make critical decisions about my career which resulted in a new and exciting leadership role. As a good listener, Caroline helped me unlock a range of options to tackle each and every career and general work enjoyment ‘blocker’ posed. I always walked away from our sessions feeling empowered and confident. Now, I am highly engaged, happy and seeing bright prospects ahead.
Created a safe yet challenging learning environment that allowed the participants to learn, grow and stretch themselves
Caroline expertly designed and facilitated a program for a group of our emerging leaders. She created a safe yet challenging learning environment that allowed the participants to learn, grow and stretch themselves. Caroline brought wisdom, great energy, humour and a genuine desire for results. The program delivered a demonstrable shift in awareness of self for the participants and awareness about their leadership presence and shadow. Our emerging leaders also walked away with some great tools in their leadership tool kit. The feedback from the program and its impact on participants has been excellent. Thank-you Caroline!
A rare combination of broad experience, powerful questions, deep insights, high inter-personal skills, unquestionable work ethic, high integrity and low ego
I have known Caroline for over a decade, initially as a consulting colleague and more recently I’ve engaged her on strategy and high performance team development assignments to support my own clients. I can recommend Caroline without reservation as a consummate professional, thoughtful advisor on change and transformation, brilliant facilitator and accomplished coach. She brings that rare combination of broad experience, powerful questions, deep insights, high inter-personal skills, unquestionable work ethic, high integrity and low ego – it’s all about YOU as the client and getting YOUR results, and on that basis I don’t know of any projects within Caroline’s influence that haven’t worked. So, when it’s about strategy or transformation I choose to work with Caroline whenever I can.
Highly skilled, emotionally attuned, able to skillfully challenge and re frame my thinking
I have been privileged to have Caroline as an Executive coach over the last 2 years. Caroline is highly skilled, emotionally attuned and is able to skillfully challenge and re frame my thinking, alongside providing many strategies to overcome challenges and build my confidence and success as a leader. Caroline has assisted me to "dig deep" and really understand who I am, and what I stand for as a leader. Having the space and support to develop through coaching with Caroline has been a gift.
Refusing to solve my challenges for me – Caroline asked the right questions, let me work at my own pace and ensured that I was very much the owner of my results
Having experienced multiple personal and career setbacks, Caroline came into my life when I was stuck … and tired. Caroline demonstrated an unbelievable amount of patience as I steadfastly refused to get out of my own way. Refusing to solve my challenges for me – she asked the right questions, let me work at my own pace and ensured that I was very much the owner of my results. Most importantly, I walked away strong – with a toolkit of skills I carry with me to this day – demonstrated by the fact that as I have faced further challenges, I have got through them with remarkable ease – taking the learning with me and leaving behind what I no longer need. I cannot recommend Caroline highly enough. The possibilities are a reality now.
Shown us how to engage our best talent to deliver a compelling story that builds enthusiasm for an automated future
Thank you for your flexibility; you stepped in to a very challenging environment and I am and will continue to be grateful for your advice and the 'box of tools' you adapted for us. I am particularly excited about the impact assessment which will ferret out the knowledge gaps and enable a solid, evidence based training plan. The other thing I'm really excited about is the end-to-end ‘walk through’ - you've shown us how to engage our best talent to deliver a compelling story that builds enthusiasm for an automated future.
Exremely positive feedback - people very much enjoyed the opportunity to reflect
Thank you for the workshop you provided yesterday as part of our planning and review day. The feedback from the team was extremely positive and people very much enjoyed the opportunity to reflect on their work in the context of past, present and future directions.
Helped me unlock a more productive and insightful working style.
Caroline was a real revelation for me. She was referred to me at a crucial point in my career and helped me unlock a more productive and insightful working style. I would highly recommend Caroline for anyone looking for truthful and purposeful executive coaching.
Helps me to look at situations differently now
Coaching with Caroline, I have learnt how to better manage difficult situations. There were times that I would come to a coaching session thinking there was no possible way out of a situation I was in, but Caroline helped me work through the issues and identify my options. I really liked that. It helps me to look at situations differently now. She also helped me recognise that I have good skills and experience that is transferable and that I can achieve anything if I want to.
I don’t think there was anyone in the room who remained untouched and unchanged by that experience.
I was interested to meet Caroline Cameron at a group retreat and watch her in action as she made a life-coaching presentation to us. I was extremely impressed with how she made the session so productive for everyone present, and how she put into practice the fundamentals of her craft so clearly, concisely and meaningfully. I don’t think there was anyone in the room who remained untouched and unchanged by that experience. She made everyone think about their lives, their reality and their goals, and helped us all realise how simply we could put changes incrementally in place to effect a transition from what is, to what we’d like to be. The process proved pretty inspiring for all of us there, and we all agreed that it had been an amazing experience to be a part of. I’ve had sessions since with other life coaches and often been terribly disappointed. They can become so caught up in their own experiences, jargon, sources and meaningless acronyms that the time spent with them feels utterly wasted. With Caroline, on the other hand, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for any life, lifestyle, career or executive coaching role. I feel very fortunate to have had the benefit of her time, experience, empathy and wisdom.
Leads you in setting aspirational goals and then working through how these can be achieved in a very practical way
I have been fortunate to work with Caroline for three periods of time, each related to new positions. When I gained my first acting executive position Caroline supported me in establishing myself in the role, then applying and being successfully appointed. Caroline provides a good balance of challenge and support in her coaching. She leads you in setting aspirational goals and then working through how these can be achieved in a very practical way. I didn't hesitate to re-engage Caroline when applying and moving into two further positions, as I knew that she would help me to quickly build a strong vision and plan for implementation. And apart from that, she's a great listener and helps me to keep things in perspective, including encouraging fun and balance in life! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Caroline to friends and colleagues.
Deep listening, consistently positive attitude and belief that anything is possible creates the climate of trust
I invited Caroline to be my coach and guide as I retired from my CEO role. Caroline’s non judgmental, big picture, possibility thinking approach; along with her capacity to listen deeply and challenge helped me set priorities and chart and navigate a positive transition for the organization and for myself. I am now embarking on the next stage of my life journey. I have a clear vision of the life I want to live, how I want to relate to others and make a difference in the world. Whether working within an organization or working one on one with a person, Caroline’s deep listening skills, consistently positive attitude and belief that anything is possible creates the climate of trust and the scaffolding required to move from the present reality, vision the future and identify a plan to achieve it. I recommend working with Caroline and P2R to anyone who seriously wants to make positive changes in their lives or in their organizations. Our time together opened doors for me – thank you for the gift of your wisdom and time.
A high impact player who brings a wealth of experience and applies it through an open mind and ear.
I engaged Caroline to provide guidance and leadership to our change management team on a large transformation project. Her skill in change management is undeniable and her results speak for themselves. Caroline is a high impact player who brings a wealth of experience and applies it through an open mind and ear. Caroline anticipates issues and takes actions that prevent problems thereby removing much of the pain out of change management.
Caroline has also provided me career coaching support. Her approach challenged my own self limiting beliefs to open up thoughts and opportunities that I didn’t believe possible. Caroline is a truly inspiring change management professional and executive coach.
Helped me find ways to open doors where all I had seen were walls
Through her probing style, Caroline helped me find ways to open doors where all I had seen were walls. Within a short period of time, she helped me change some of the ways I dealt with business challenges I faced, which carried over into all aspects of my life. In her soft-spoken way, Caroline packs an inspirational punch!
Caroline helped me identify my 'blind spots' and better understand my impact on others
I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Caroline for the past eighteen months as my executive coach. Caroline is a brilliant coach who enabled me to become a far more effective leader in my organisation. Caroline consistently challenged and extended my thinking, provided me with a range of strategies to overcome challenges and barriers and enhanced my strengths by learning to consciously apply them at different times. Most importantly Caroline helped me identify my 'blind spots' and better understand my impact on others. As a result of the coaching I now have more job satisfaction, increased self-confidence and improved relationships with my staff. This has all led to increased performance and results by individuals and teams.
Enabled me to confidently apply my own insight and experience to any situation
I was fortunate to have corporate coaching sessions with Caroline during a period of organisational change. Caroline helped me recognise my progress and enabled me to draw on my own strengths to address my goals. I was always assured that the very valuable "between" session calls (laser coaching) were never an imposition, and was able to use these sessions to clarify my decision-making processes through the most challenging moments. Caroline's innovative approach assisted me to expand my possible choices, to focus my thinking well, and to consider great alternatives. Being able to identify the “opportunities” that uncertainty can provide is a strength I gained. Caroline's expert coaching has enabled me to confidently apply my own insight and experience to any situation. She got to know me well , reflecting back at me an understanding of my situation, aspirations, goals, misgivings and limits….and then took me beyond them through our coaching sessions!
Spot on! I feel way more confident in my skills and leadership abilities now – this course is a must do for all emerging leaders.
Outstanding leadership and coaching abilities
Caroline is a senior consultant whose outstanding leadership and coaching abilities, exemplary stakeholder management abilities, strong conceptual and analytical thinking, and ability to work through complex and detailed situations make her a professional I would unreservedly recommend to employers and clients alike.
Everyone got so much out of it!
Caroline did a brilliant job with our team and we've got some very worthwhile projects to work on as a result. I heard great feedback from other team members too - everyone got so much out of it.
An inspiring and invaluable experience
Caroline's talk was an inspiring and invaluable experience. Her strategies for dealing with emotional stress are so simple, yet powerful. This talk was the highlight for me.
