Having over 20 years business leadership experience, more than half of this earned in Asia, Caroline has earned a global reputation as a corporate real estate and workplace strategy expert. She believes in the value organisations can achieve by aligning workplace with organisational vision and identity, and by leveraging the workplace to address critical business needs and workstyle change.

She has a PhD in Organisational Strategy and Corporate Real Estate from the University of Sydney Business School, and degree qualifications in business, land economics and architecture. She is a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and the Singapore Institute of Directors.
