Caroline Arthur Speaker

Looking for a dynamic speaker or podcast guest?

Someone who will entertain your audience, and leave them feeling inspired and enthustiastic? In that case, I might just be your gal!

Having received three bookings as a speaker in the last week, I felt this deserved a brand new page on my website: Caroline Arthur Speaker .  I hope google doesn’t explode with the shock of such optimistic digital activity on my part. It might as well get used to it, as there is more to come.

I speak to a broad range of audiences, from students to textile experts, on a broad range of subjects including setting up and running a creative business, work/life balance, body positivity, upcycling and what to do with your old wedding dress. During recent months, I’ve been talking to several schools and colleges, spending time with fashion and textile design students, and absolutely loving sharing my passion for promoting an uplifting and positive approach to sustainability within the fashion and bridal industry.

I’m happy to be part of a panel, or take to the floor alone, I love a Q&A, and always like to stay for the coffee, chat and after party!

Since becoming an author and joining Toastmasters International, my spontaneous speaking style has become increasingly purposeful. As the current President of my local Toastmasters club, Godalming Speakers, I enjoy encouraging new fledgling speakers to develop their presentation skills, whilst keeping mine sharp, and my audience laughing. There’s an international speaking competition coming up soon at Toastmasters, so I’m currently working on a speech for that, when not buried under a mountain of wedding dresses.

Each of my talks is tailor-made for that audience, with relatable examples, and a liberal dose of humour and interaction. After twenty years running my own business as a wedding dress designer, I love sharing my real-life experience of building a successful creative career, and weaving in stories from the fashion and bridal world.

Sam Jones, Course leader, Farnborough College of Technology described me as: “Caroline is an energetic speaker who is passionate about sustainability within the bridal and fashion industry, and generous both with her knowledge and time”  

You can come and see me speak at Farnham Maltings Thread Festival on 8th June 2024, about upcycling and what to do with your old wedding dress. Tickets available soon.

My media experience includes commentating live for The Independent at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan in 2018, in Windsor. Numerous radio interviews, and featuring on BBC’s “Don’t tell the Bride”, has enabled me to feel comfortable in front of the camera, and on the stage. Despite this, I’m described as relatable and approachable, turning up early and keen to spend time before or after my talk to get to know the audience.

Once your booking is confirmed, I will promote your event across my digital channels and use my social media presence to increase its visibility, if you are looking to expand your audience or membership.
