Testimonials for Caroline Pemberton – ‘Miss Adventure’

"Caroline blew everyone away at our recent Adventure Tales event. Core ingredients our audience respond to is great storytelling, served up in a raw, humble and therefore relatable way - this is exactly what Caroline did. She delved into her wild past, recognised the things that have shaped her as a person and we all had fun as she took us on her (sometime hilarious) journey to becoming the adventurer she is today.

I lost count of the number of people who came up to me after the show to say how energised and inspired they were by her talk!"

Henry Brydon ‘Co Founder - Adventure Tales & Founder of We Are Explorers’


"Caroline's presentation was given with the charming informality and youthful exuberance, combined with the confidence that one can expect from a high end, experienced professional speaker. Prior event speakers have included the Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia, a former Governor of the Reserve Bank, the Chief of the Defence Force and the Roman Archbishop of Sydney. In such eclectic company, Caroline was regarded by all our regular attendees as one of the most capable and stimulating speakers thus far…I can heartily recommend Caroline for any group who wishes to be inspired by one of Australia's most charming and gifted young Australians."



"You were delightful and a warm presence and you really added to the atmosphere of the day…I wish you luck in all your endeavours and you are fantastic at what you do."

Royal Institute for Deaf & Blind Children


"Caroline conveyed great messages with warmth and grace and I have no doubt her name will be on everyone's lips for quite a while. She set a new standard four our lecture!"

Dunmore Lang College


"The Dunmore Lang College Annual Lecture, given by Caroline Pemberton was a joy to the eyes and refreshingly an even greater source of stimulation to the ears. Miss Pemberton combined a graceful, refined speaking style with a self-depreciating sense of humour. It was a very poignant, memorable keynote from a woman who can clearly turn heads at a first glance; but, continued to captivate an audience long after the tiara had been put down."

Speaking Topics Include

The Power of Storytelling & Why Your Content Marketing Sux - Drawing on over 10 years of production and story telling experience, Caroline has a bee under her bonnet. She wants to see business and brands start engaging in content that works, stop wasting their money and pissing off their audiences with disruptive advertising content that no one wants to watch. She teaches audiences hot to move their messages from advertising to storytelling and the elements of what makes a great story stick.


The Importance of Vulnerability, Authenticity & Self- Acceptance - The biggest trap of being ‘front of house’ whether that’s on TV, on stage, or just as a leader in front of audiences and teams, is thinking that we need to be ‘perfect’ and crafting a version of ourselves, or putting on a mask in order to fulfil that role. The irony is that audiences only love and respect you, when they can relate to you. That happens naturally when you are vulnerable and that authenticity demands brave self---acceptance.


7 Lessons in Failure from one of the 7 Summits - We live in an achievement driven society but what happens when we fail? What are the lessons we can learn and how should we cope? Is there any room for failure in our world and how can we use it to our advantage? Caroline shares 7 lessons in failure that she learned on the slopes of one of the fames Seven Summits.


Log Off & Live - Device addiction is real and it affects us all. Did you know you will spends 35,000 hours of your life looking down at a mobile phone? That 12% of us use our phones in the shower and one in 5 of us check our phones during sex? Why are we so addicted? And how can we create more balance in our lives? Could a digital detox in nature really help?


Real Body Image  - In the whirlwind world of social media that breeds and unhealthy culture of comparison, how can one fall in love with their body? How can we change the focus from what our bodies look like, to being in awe of what they can do? Caroline shows audiences the ins and outs of the mass-produced marketing images that we all see between 400-600x a day to reveal just how unrealistic it is to strive to look like the models in the magazines. She knows, because she is one of them and she certainly doesn’t look like that either!


From Miss Australia to MissAdventure - Growing up a tomboy and a bit of a nerd at school to accidentally winning a beauty pageant, giving up a tracked Honours degree to work in television, travelling and adventuring across all 7 continents and the exciting, weird and wonderful adventures she’s had along the way.
