create energy

“Before we worked with Carolyn, we know how to play but we didn’t know how to perform. She changed all of that. We now know how to listen to each other, create energy and most importantly communicate and create an impact with the audience. We went from good to great!

engaging

“Thank you Carolyn for taking part in our 3rd annual “Woman’s Worth” event. (proceeds donated to Breast Cancer Research). The event is surrounded by so much emotion throughout the day and as our keynote speaker you really did an amazing job with connecting and engaging our audience, adding humor and fun to the event. We received a great deal of positive feedback for your presentation and we hope we have the opportunity in being entertained by you again.

poise

“I had the priveledge of meeting Carolyn at “A Woman’s Worth” Seminar. She was the key note speaker and she captured everyones attention from the beginning. Her poise and grace and confidence draws you in, her talent and beauty keeps you there. She had people eager to volunteer for her vocal exercises, and she had us giggling in our seats. And when she sang she had us wanting more. After her speech, I had the privelege to sit beside Carolyn, and I have found a kindred spirit in her. She is truly one of those charasmatic people in life that you feel blessed to have met. Thank you Carolyn xo”

brilliant

“I was thrilled to hear that Carolyn was the key note speaker for the Woman’s Worth Seminar.  From the moment I met Carolyn, I knew we were kindred spirits!  She is passionate about life and has a bigger than life presence.  With her friendly and welcoming presence, she connects with her audience with ease and flow. Her dynamic energy draws people to her and her key note presentation was brilliant.  When she asked for volunteers, so many hands went up for the opportunity to work with her.  To our joy and amazement she shared with us gems and fun exercises to create a powerful presence, how to think on our feet, project clearly while reaching our own audience with our voice and with confidence.  She had the volunteers say the fun phrase from “My Fair Lady” through “The rain in spain falls mainly on the plane.”  This simple and powerful fun exercise showed us how we can speak clearly, pronouncing our words and reach a full room.  I am still singing the song and remembering the day’s event with Carolyn! Everyone left with a take away about confidence and tapping into our own genius!  I would recommend Carolyn to anyone who wants to grow themselves and their business.

world class performer

“Carolyn is a wonderful coach. She understood our client’s strengths and weaknesses in performance and completely customized the lessons for the client’s needs. Carolyn’s Open Mic Night provided great opportunities to apply what was learned from lessons into performing on stage. Carolyn is definitely recommended to people that are willing to learn to become a world class performer.

awesome experience

“I look after my daughter’s young band, Lightning the Band. A group of shy youngsters with a serious love of music. I was desperately trying to find someone who could coach them musically, as well as with respect to stage presence. Being pretty new to this “manager” of the band type situation, I didn’t know where to turn. A good friend suggested I contact Carolyn Thompson. What a session!! She got those kids who were almost too nervous to even speak, to actually start singing and moving. It was an awesome experience. She achieved so much with them is short time available. We were very happy with her abilities and the whole experience. I give her a huge THUMBS UP and 6 stars out of 5! Thanks Carolyn Thompson from Celeste Segal and Lightning the Band!”
