In 2010, after a 20-year career in marketing in the corporate world and in her own marketing consultancy, Carolyn left her home in Sydney, Australia to take a career circuit-breaker in the south of France with her son, Billy. In 2011 she returned to live in Melbourne and went to work at a women's not-for-profit before founding Carolyn Tate & Co., an education and publishing company dedicated to unearthing a higher purpose in people and organisations. Carolyn is a keynote speaker and the founder of The Purpose Project and Talk on Purpose learning programs and The Slow School of Business (Slow School). She's a founding member of Conscious Capitalism Australia (a movement that exists to inspire businesses to a purpose beyond profit) and her company is also a Certified B Corporation (this is like the Fairtrade Coffee certification but for business). She has been immersing herself in the concepts around higher purpose and the principles of consciousness in business for the past six years and has been actively working with the contents of this book in her own personal and professional life and with clients. Carolyn is also the author of Small Business Big Brand (2007), Marketing your Small Business for Dummies (2010), Unstuck in Provence (2014) and Conscious Marketing (2015). She's been a professional speaker for many years and has been featured in the AFR, BRW, Herald-Sun, The Age, Peppermint Magazine and Slow Living.
