Carole Johnson, MBE

Advisor

“Work with people who are as passionate about your business as you are – whether they’re employees, contractors, suppliers or advisors.”

Carole’s MBE is proof she thrives under pressure: as Deputy High Commissioner in Malta, she co-ordinated the evacuation (at speed) of civilians from Libya in 2011. She gets to grip with things quickly and has worked in a number of start-ups, including as development director at a law firm. She’s lived and worked all over the world, in the public and private sectors, and now runs her own business.  

Carole also specialises in
Employee grievance and dispute resolution
Working with Government departments and NGOs
Multi-site and international business operations
Coaching and development for presentations and other professional skills

Who Carole’s worked with
Carole trained at Ernst & Young before running a top-ten London law firm’s training department. Twenty years into her career, she changed roles and spent a decade as a fast-stream diplomat in the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. She now runs her own business, helping professional service businesses with their operations.

Carole’s advice
“Work with people who are as passionate about your business as you are – whether they’re employees, contractors, suppliers or advisors.”
