Caroline witnessed how easy it was for corporate strategists to overlook their people. While figures tell a story, it is people that determine the success of a business, Caroline believes.
This prompted her to write the book, The Power of Wow! Why Thank You Makes Dollars & Sense, about developing lasting, engaging connections with staff and clients.
"I believe that people want to do business with and work for companies that recognise and value them; there is a powerful intersection between building loyalty and recognising people." -
