About Caroline Stokes

Caroline spent 20+ years with innovation technology leaders critiquing hiring practices, onboarding practices, engagement and leadership systems. She spent an additional five years working at a headhunting firm delivering executive level placements at Microsoft, Bethesda, Ziff Davis and Trinity Mirror.

Caroline realized something was missing from the process: a high-touch, compassionate approach that left both the employer and talent closer to their seemingly impossible future.

She is the founder of FORWARD, the first executive search and first-quarter coaching firm to expedite the integration of all talent placements; and the host of the new podcast, The Emotionally Intelligent Recruiter, which interviews top leaders in the field to support evolving recruiters to adapt in critical collaborative and analytical environments.

Caroline has been called to speak or join panels about current talent technology trends at Pocket Gamer Connects Vancouver, VR Connects London and VR Connects San Francisco, plus a Fireside Chat at the BC Labour Market Report Conference.

Caroline is a contributor to Forbes, Venturebeat, Undercover Recruiter, and Huffington Post. She has written over 70 human articles for Forbes, LinkedIn, Thrive Global, The Undercover Recruiter and Medium, and has been quoted in in Forbes, Fast Company, TechRepublic, Business News Daily, The Coaching Connector and Monster. .

About Anthony Flores, or “T” as Kimberly affectionately refers to him: He is a long-time friend of hers who, after graduating from Stanford University, began researching and writing professionally in the health space full-time.
