Biography

Caroline Trépanier, transformation artist
Facilitation, communication, marketing, and creativity expert

“Leadership is the art of emotionally engaging people and generating enthusiasm. It’s to inspire them to become a creative artist in the face of change, so they can welcome it rather than suffer it. Change then becomes the occasion to create a masterpiece and to innovate.”
Caroline Trépanier, Karo T
