About Carol Hipkiss Spencer

Carol has worked alongside CEOs, directors and senior Managers across many senior and national roles for over 30 years. Working in the public, private and not for profit organisations, she has become a successful and confident leader. Holding roles such as Head of Industrial Relations, Head of Learning & Development and HR Director, have resulted in a depth and breadth of HR expertise at both generalist and specialist levels. With a strong track record of successfully managing industrial disputes in a large, complex, and often volatile unionised environment, she has also specialised in individual and group development. A Post-Graduate and Fellow of the CIPD, Carol is accredited in mediation, executive coaching, and is a practitioner of MBTI. Carol has also successfully completed an Executive Leadership Development Programme on Strategic Leadership at Oxford Said Business School.

Through these experiences she has developed a deep understanding of how powerful coaching can be to allow individuals to positively navigate their way through complex work and relationship issues to create a positive working environment and develop the skills needed to work collaboratively with others.
