Caroline Patten

Caroline began her Consultancy career in 2005, having graduated in Business Management with CIPD, by heading up the North-West division for a national recruitment organisation. She quickly rose through the ranks by combining traditional people management and leadership skills with a strategic focus that ensured consistent sales growth and increased profitability.

By 2008, Caroline had launched her own Recruitment business, leveraging her relentless ambition and strong commercial awareness to identify and bridge opportunities in new markets. She spent the next 10 years establishing a successful team and growing an award-winning £2m turnover business.
More recently, Caroline has been in-demand as Non-Exec Director, Trustee, Mentor and Consultant on strategic planning and business transformation projects. As GR Consulting, she now supports others – from fast-growing SMEs and corporates to social enterprises and government bodies – to drive change and harness potential.
