With wit and warmth, Caroline shares her extraordinary childhood, growing up in Chawton in the shadows of her fifth great-aunt, Jane Austen, with photographs and artefacts from the private collection of the Austen Knight family.
Jane Austen had a goal; to become a published author. Caroline shares the life and business lessons she has learnt from her fifth great-aunt Jane Austen, which have helped Caroline achieve her own goals and business successes.

“It was an absolute honour to have Caroline as the speaker at our conference. Caroline is an engaging and passionate speaker - when she spoke about walking in the same places that Jane would have walked, and dining in the same rooms Jane would have sat, it was quite thrilling - you could have heard a pin drop in the room! Caroline has an energetic and engaging style, speaking with warmth, enthusiasm and humour”
Mercia Chapman, President, JA Society Melbourne
"I worked closely with Caroline in prepping for the World Literacy Summit in Oxford, and having sat through this event I can say without hesitation that Caroline delivers her presentations in such a way that is not only charismatic, but delivers this information in an extraordinarily interesting and insightful what. A way that is truly personal and unique. As such I have seen her audiences love her and her story even more!"
David Perrin, CEO - World Literacy Summit
"Caroline's upbeat, down-to-earth style, engaging stories and powerful message will challenge and empower any audience. Using lessons from her Great Aunt - Jane Austen, Caroline gets to the heart of issues which keep people stuck and hold them back from fulfilling their potential and achieving the success they want. The audience was easily able to apply her practical strategies to step into focused and confident action in their work and life"
Tony Gleeson, CEO - Australian Institute of Management
