Carol Fox

As an Executive Coach, Conference Speaker and Masterclass Facilitator, Carol Fox has assisted thousands of people in improving their personal and professional lives through building confidence, finding motivation and learning better ways to communicate. For 30 years, she has collaborated with all levels of government, not-for-profit and corporate clients sharing practical, effective concepts from her best-selling book Confident Communication for Leaders.

Carol’s knowledge base has been bolstered by her time lecturing in two subjects at Victoria University plus a plethora of professional qualifications across science, education and therapeutic fields. She holds a Bachelor of Applied Science, a Graduate Diploma in Education and is currently studying her PhD in Clinical Hypnotherapy. Her influential master’s degree thesis, Women’s Perceived Barriers to Elite Coaching Positions in Australian Sport, helped to establish Carol as a serious name in leadership and equality issues. This thesis - exploring the apparent social, cultural and institutional pressures placed upon women in top coaching roles - positively impacted the Australian Sports Commission into easing some of these barriers when determining their future policies. Carol is also internationally qualified in Neuro Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Matrix Therapies and as a celebrant.

Further background as Victoria’s first professional female surf lifesaver, a state-level swimmer and water-polo player, coaching and even competing against men in ironman competitions has given Carol invaluable insight into the mentality required to be a leader that translates to general life and business.

Carol is the President of Women Sport Australia (advocating for gender equality across wages, resources and opportunities) and was chosen to be a baton bearer for the 2018 Commonwealth Games Queens Baton Relay.
