 Have you ever wondered what goes a person's mind when they meet you?  Not only do we make snap judgments, but we also make them incredibly quickly (in 100 milliseconds, according to one Princeton study), and we find them very difficult to change. Using the art of first impressions, make every day lucky with the power to connect instantly, nurture relationships and empower lives.  Interact and gain hands-on insight with 3 Round Table Experts coming together to help you with personal image, personal branding and personal style so you can put your best foot forward...the first time.

She holds a BFA in Theatre Performance and an MA in Communication, and loves living BIG (how many folks can say they’ve lived in an Ashram, shaved their head, or bungee jumped naked?) But it wasn’t always that way. She was fresh out of theatre school, with nothing but a dream to make it on Broadway, when her mother’s passing changed everything. Carol has since learned that life is simply too short not to live in the here and now, and only YOU can believe in you.

Carol has lived in 7 different countries (including Thailand, New Zealand, & Germany) as well as volunteered and/or traveled through an additional 25. She also speaks Spanish, French, German, and conversational Thai. She is also a volunteer bereavement facilitator, marathon runner, and certified yoga instructor.
