About Carlene


” I had a number of chats with Carlene to help my business move to the next level. Every chat I came out feeling super motivated with a to do list ready to go and work on. I highly recommend working with Carlene.”


Amber Cloney – The Active Lifestyle

“Carlene worked with French Country Collections for over 2 & half years and was an invaluable member of the team. Carlene worked to create and improve a lot of our HR systems and procedures for recruitment, on boarding, exit and everything in between.

She created a number of bespoke systems which allowed us to capture and monitor areas such as performance discussions, remuneration guidelines & reporting, Board reporting and Payroll. Carlene never failed to remain cool under pressure and was always looking to do what was best for the company.
I worked with Carlene closely throughout this period and was always taken by her professionalism, realism and ability to see things objectively. Her coaching style is open, honest and challenging and always confidential. She is strategic, realistic, approachable, works hard and is a lot of fun to work with.
I thoroughly recommend Carlene.”


Caroline Miller CEO - French Country Collections

I have worked with Carlene in various capasities over 5 years. She would be a breath of fresh air to any organisation. Her cool, calm demeanour and intelligence helps parties identify real issues, and alternate resolution paths, whilst removing the heat and emotion that might otherwise hinder positive outcomes.

Carlene was a core and invaluable member of our management team and made an instant impact. Her advice and counsel is priceless as she has represented “both sides of the table” during her career. She is strategic, practical, relational and has a high work ethic. She is also a lot of fun to work with.
Carlene understands HR, and is at the top of her game. I thoroughly recommend Carlene.
