Quality Matters, Co-founder, CEO

Caroline is social entrepreneur and social researcher. In the midst of an economic recession, alongside two equally motivated and optimistic colleagues, Caroline founded Quality Matters. Five years on, with eight staff, seven associates and numerous partnerships, QM is the largest consulting charity and social enterprise working in the area of quality improvement and impact measurement.

As well as working with over 100 state agencies, philanthropists and charities to improve services to some of Ireland's most vulnerable populations QM is leading out innovative solutions to entrenched social problems.

Caroline also teaches and after work occasionally bores people discussing social value and social entrepreneurship.
