    STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS, STAKEHOLDER RELATIONS &

    DIGITAL ENGAGEMENT SPECIALIST

  • Caroline has developed a reputation as a hands-on, senior-level communications consultant, adept at providing “high-level” strategic advising, “lower-level” editing and everything in between.

     

    With a deep understanding of the nexus between business, media, politics and governance, Caroline has supported communications, public relations, public affairs, stakeholder relations and reputation management efforts on behalf of a variety of public and private companies.

     

    For over 10 years, Caroline managed her own boutique integrated communications consultancy businesses, serving clients that range from oil, natural gas, forestry, mining and minerals, energy, information technology, financial management and publishing industries to start-ups. She thrives in challenging situations, where influencing, collaboration and clear communication are essential.

     

    She is regularly sought after by leadership teams operating in basins around the world for her expertise in the role of digital in public affairs and stakeholder engagement, online advocacy and communications support for projects, and campaigns within the complex and issues-rich oil, gas, energy and natural resources sectors.

     

    Caroline has conducted and overseen research into the role of participatory web in public affairs. Her on-going research and analysis of online advocacy and activism provides an understanding of the life cycle of movements and online communications campaigns; what they do well, where they falter and trends that impact the cycle of public interest. She has also lead multi-lingual social media, print media, political elite and reputational research and audits in North America and Europe covering companies, CEOs, brands, and contentious natural resource development issues such as forestry, shale gas, groundwater, hydraulic fracturing, oil and natural gas.


    As Founder of leading natural gas stakeholder engagement platforms, she maintained full financial and operational responsibility for the organization and oversaw the growth of all lines of business. Her leadership empowered teams in the development and commercialization of sophisticated insights, information, and analytic services to meet the complex needs of energy industry stakeholders across the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific and Africa.

     

    A career highlight for Caroline is having been retained as Principal Consultant by international oil and gas companies to spearhead the creation and development of a new Brussels, Belgium based NGO/alliance for European onshore energy.

     

    Caroline brings a unique mix of talents interfacing Internet solutions with a social impact minded, entrepreneurial background. Prior to her recent endeavours, Caroline lived in Silicon Valley, California and for over 10 years she held high profile positions for publicly traded Internet Technology companies. As Manager, North American Channel Sales and Strategic Alliances for an emergering technology company listed on the NADAQ (selling ahead of it's time, what we now call "cloud computing"), she delivered year over year multimillion dollar revenue gains, earning her the company's top Worldwide Sales Award and numerous President's Club Awards.

     

    Her breadth of experience has made her a trusted advisor to Boards, executive management and project teams. Her career accomplishments are rounded out by a great sense of humour, and strong project management and team leadership skills ensuring work projects are completed on time, within budget and produce a return on investment.

    Caroline welcomes professional dialogue and inquiries regarding potential communications, public affairs and stakeholder relations opportunities.
