Speaker Biography

Caroline Fenton

Caroline became a freelance consultant/interim manager following a career in industry (Rank Xerox) followed by nine years with Coopers & Lybrand as a management consultant working in both the commercial and public sectors. She was service line director for Programme and Change Management, Public Sector Consulting.

This work has focused on supporting organisations to develop their vision for the future leading to strategic plans incorporating the implementation of change and achieving the agreed outcomes. She has also undertaken a number of assignments for Arts Council England including the design and implementation of two major programmes of change, the development of a self-assessment framework for regularly funded organisations and the piloting of an alternative approach to governance under the auspices of the Cultural Leadership Programme.

Second she has undertaken a number of interim management positions for a range of arts organisations including the Royal Shakespeare Company, Welsh National Opera, English National Opera and the Hayward Gallery. Caroline is currently interim Chief Executive of Creative & Cultural Skills. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
