Carol Wilson gave an inspiring and incredibly useful talk at the IBWG meeting in Dubai. All I can say is that her coaching sessions must be fantastic as I walked out of yesterday’s lunch believing I could conquer the world!
Carol Wilson’s presentation was well structured and informative. She managed to fit a lot of information into her time slot and delegates found some of the content thought provoking. Her wealth of experience came across in her presentation and her delivery was professional.
