Tuesday 13th March, 15:10, Main Stage – Making change happen: Aligning personal purpose with a business mission (Seminar)
Caroline, an award-winning social entrepreneur, is both an adventurer and a business woman. Subject of the National Geographic Documentary Elephant Vision, Ashoka Fellow, Eisenhower Fellow, Counsellor for One Young World, Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, TED speaker, past advisor for the Clinton Global Initiative and unwavering campaigner, Caroline’s passion and ambition for leading a life without limits and labels is truly contagious.
Since taking a life-changing decision at 28 to leave her successful career as a management consultant and travel across India on an elephant, Caroline has been committed to building a global movement on inclusive business to build an equal society for the 1 billion people in the world with a disability.
Caroline has set up a new company, Binc, whose mission is to collaborate with some of the world’s leading organisations identifying what she refers to as “The New Green” – the new business imperative for success – Inclusive Business. An advisor, mentor, board member and international speaker Caroline has a real ability to connect with people. Her extraordinary personal story of coming to terms with her own hidden disability and turning that perceived “weakness” into professional and personal success is relatable, funny, humbling and deeply meaningful.
