WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
We brought Redstorm in to do our International Womens’ Day celebratory keynote. Once people heard who was speaking we were inundated with requests to join the session. Carol spoke about women supporting women in a highly competitive work environment, she gave really practical advice and tools to upgrade our everyday communications and then ran several run on sessions for us based on the feedback from our internal teams.
We booked Carol O’Kelly as part of our Global Partner Forum. She was the key speaker and delivered a fantastic session on Personal Branding and Strategic Communications to facilitate internal inter-silo communications and interpersonal relationships. There were games and exercises to get everyone engaged. I couldn’t believe the response she got from what could have been a very serious audience. Fantastic session. We’ll definitely be back!
Carol spoke at one of our final get togethers towards the end of the academic term to our MBA candidates. Very insightful session, lots of tools for everyone to use in crafting a Personal Brand at this point in their careers. She offered a one to one full session as a prize at the end of the session, such a generous gesture. The winner was delighted. We are looking at running this session as a regular part of the MBA intake each year.
