Carol Frohlinger Author, Trainer, Consultant, Advancing Women
Momentum is a rigorous year-long executive training program in its 15th year. For over a decade we have invited Carol back to conduct negotiation training each year. Her course consistently ranks in the top three of our curriculum. The topic is of critical importance to executive women, and Carol's expertise and enthusiasm give our women the boost they need to take on that next challenge, and to accurately articulate their value. Carol is as insightful as she is delightful, as hard-driving as she is entertaining. Her professionalism is evident, as I have watched her adjust her content and presentation style based on the experience level, skill set, and demeanor of our participants. Feedback from our last session includes: "This was one of my favorite (Momentum) sessions so far. It really helped me to focus on the way to achieve my independent plan." "Good, practical advice from Carol, and good balance of teaching vs. discussion vs. participation." "Loved this session, it was the best yet. Most useful, as we are always negotiating!" "Excellent session. I learned many strategies that I will put to good use. Great session, great speaker." Carol will be top on our roster of facilitators for a long time to come!
Carol conducted a workshop and was a keynote speaker at an event hosted by the Women Attorneys Section of the Evansville Bar Association. She was dynamic and inspiring, and provided useful, research-based information on women's issues in the workplace. Attendees have reached out to thank us for bringing her to Evansville. I highly recommend Carol as a trainer and a keynote speaker.
Carol is an insanely superb speaker and consultant with creative and effective ideas for women in business and in life. Her expertise is demonstrated in her meticulous work product. We engaged her to speak to the members of my women lawyers' organization, and we had the best attendance yet. If you hire Carol, she'll make you shine.
Carol was the featured speaker at our inaugural Women Partners' Retreat; her session was titled, "Business Development in the New Normal". Our group, comprised of lawyers from many practice areas, benefited greatly from Carol's pragmatic advice and the practical tools she provided. Carol's background, combining strong instructional design experience with research about gender, business development and negotiation, makes her strongly credible. At the same time, Carol is an engaging speaker and connected with our partners ranging from those newly minted to those with thirty years' experience.
Carol has presented a number of times at my firm and always gets great reviews. She is an excellent speaker with lots of wisdom to impart.
Carol was the keynote speaker at SRR's Women's Retreat. Her session on negotiation was right on point. Carol took the time to learn about our company and offered real world examples and stories that made the concepts accessible to all, regardless of tenure or level. The feedback received by the attendees was outstanding! I am already seeing Carol's techniques and suggestions being utilized, including by me! I recommend Carol without hesitation.
Each year, our women's leadership organization hosts a symposium bringing in high level thought leaders to address topics of significant importance and value to women's leadership and advancement. At our 2014 spring symposium, we were so fortunate to have Carol Frohlinger lead one of our sessions, "Her Place at the Table: Negotiating Skills for Women." The feedback on Carol's session was both stellar and inspiring. Her interactive session was described as being "incredibly engaging" with wonderful and practical takeaway skills. One woman who attended said it all: "Carol's positive approach to the topic of negotiating made us feel as if "we can do this!" Carol Frohlinger is a star…..a smart and dynamic woman with an extraordinary background who has the capability to make women feel empowered and have their voices heard! What more could we ask for in a speaker? Thank you, Carol, for an enriching and extraordinary experience.
Carol gave a Negotiations workshop at the 2017 Officer Women Leadership Symposium to around 250 military officer women. This group of women is highly trained, yet not as familiar with the nuances of strong negotiations for oneself. In fact, often military officers don't feel comfortable negotiating on their own behalf because they are so service-minded. Carol not only gave the group a sense of the importance of negotiating on behalf of oneself, but also shared the theory and practical tips of negotiating well. In the session, she had everybody practice the recommended negotiating tips and then consider opportunities to manage negotiations. By the end, everybody left the room with an understanding of why they should negotiate, permission to negotiate, and motivation to negotiate on a particularly relevant issue. On behalf of military officer women and veterans, Thank you, Carol!
"Carol was the speaker for my company's Women's Initiative event where we hosted approximately 80 clients. We received so many wonderful comments from clients and friends regarding the event and Carol's words of wisdom on negotiating for "Our Place at the Table." She has been instrumental as we build our programming to inspire, empower, and connect women. Thank you, Carol!"
"Here we are, nearly a week after our annual Her Traditions Women's Luncheon, and we are continuing to receive emails and notes from our guests thanking us for the experience! Here's just one example that one of our managers shared with us: 'One of my large customers was so motivated by Carol's speech that she went back to her office and she emailed her boss. She had worked 40 hours already that week and was completely overwhelmed as she often is. She said that Carol gave her the motivation - and the practical advice she needed - to finally let her boss know that she needed help. Her boss emailed her back to say he had not known she was underwater and suggested they meet to discuss ways he could help her. Great job in supporting the women of business here in York and for enriching so many lives including my own.' Our follow-up survey reinforced that the nearly 200 attendees were engaged and inspired, giving overwhelmingly positive ratings for both speaker and topic. Thanks for making our event extraordinary!"
Hi Carol, I want to personally thank you for the incredible presentation you provided to our membership yesterday evening. You truly engaged the audience. Your examples and anecdotal stories really resonated with them. In the end, we had 140 people in attendance and a strong showing from the C-suite including a CMIO, a CNIO and two CIOs. They generally don't have time for these events so the fact that we had this number in attendance is really a testament to you as a speaker. I'll also be sure to mention how successful the event was with the other HIMSS Chapter Presidents on our next quarterly call and at the HIMSS Annual Conference in March. Take care and I hope to see you again sometime soon!
Carol's session on Negotiating for Yourself was one of the highlights of the Hastings Leadership Academy for Women. Carol is a gifted teacher who inspires participants at the same time she is expanding their skills. She combines a high degree of professionalism with a sense of humor and accessibility, and it is a pleasure to work with her.
"Our chapter of CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women) recently held its first ever 'Women in Action' event. We hired Carol as our keynote speaker for two reasons: 1. we knew she would be a huge attraction to boost attendance 2. that negotiation, Carol's area of expertise, was just what our group wanted to hear about! We were right. Carol delivered on both objectives. She personalized her comments on negotiating compensation to our audience's comments and questions. As one of our members said, 'It was a great pleasure to attend Carol's session. I loved her suggestions about keeping a brag book, the Hamilton reference she made to 'being in the room where it happens' and her warnings about aspirational collapse and 'The Tiara Syndrome', wow! She just nailed it - offering not only great content but also encouragement and inspiration." We received great feedback about her and and will strongly recommend Carol to our other chapters."
Our members were so excited to hear what Carol had to say that registration for our event swelled and we had to book a larger room! Carol didn't disappoint - her keynote was full of humor, practical advice and a clear "call to action". She kept the audience completely engaged from the moment she started to speak and her message resonated with an extremely diverse audience ranging from senior leaders to those just starting their careers. We received great feedback and I highly recommend her for your conference.
WX New York Women Executives in Real Estate engaged Carol Frohlinger to make a presentation to the participants in its Mentoring Program this winter. Carol prepared an interactive presentation on negotiation skills for women that both the mentors and mentees of the program found engaging and enlightening. The content was thought provoking and was well received by both the younger as well as the more senior professionals in attendance. Carol's humor, relatable examples and incorporation of the audience's personal stories, questions and feedback were just a few of the reasons why the experience was valuable. Carol is a unique and engaging speaker and was a pleasure to work with. She incorporated material from her book "Her Place at the Table" which is relevant for professional women at any stage in their careers. We received very positive feedback from all in attendance and would highly recommend Carol for similar speaking engagements.
