Bringing purpose to life.

Sharing the stories that remake the world.

I acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation who are the traditional owners of the land on which I live and work and the Yarra Birrarung river in which I swim. Wilip-gin Birrarung murron. (Keep the Birrarung alive!)

Some leaders teach purpose but may not actually live it. I try my best to do both—to show not just tell. This means I've learnt what it takes for purpose programs to change cultures and drive impact. I partner with clients to educate and empower you to turn your purpose into action and then share the stories that will remake our world.

The Purpose Project

Bringing purpose to life so together we can build a better world.

As a pioneer of purpose, I’ve been teaching personal and organisational purpose for over ten years. My best-selling book, The Purpose Project is a trusted guide to thousands of leaders. My recent training in nature-based leadership has led me to understand the power of Mother Nature as our greatest teacher. In nature, using the tool of storytelling, we will unearth new possibilities and a deep sense of purpose and meaning.

As a follower of Carolyn’s work for over five years, I can confidently say she stays ahead of the curve on the purpose journey. If you’re considering embarking on your own purpose project, talking with Carolyn is the first and best place to start.

Love Stories of the Yarra Birrarung

Connecting humans and sharing stories of love for the river.

As a river swimmer and activist for a more loveable and swimmable river, I’m on a mission to change the negative perception many Victorians have of the Yarra Birrarung. These stories will help change the narrative and invite us all to connect with the river, tend to her and become activists and action-takers for a more healthy, loved, swimmable Yarra Birrarung for all.

Our vision is a healthy, protected and loved Yarra Birrarung River. Carolyn’s stories offer a unique bridge connecting humans to the river.
