Carolina Perez Sanz is a communications consultant and coach at Templar Advisors. She’s the first recipient of the Logos Institute Rising Leader Award for her contribution to the research in women’s leadership.

Born in Lisbon(Portugal), raised in Madrid (Spain) and educated in the Lycee Francais system, she came to New York in October 2014 seeking to broaden her expertise in business communication.

Although she already held a Ph.D. in Linguistics, she went back to school and obtained a Master of Science in Public Relations & Corporate Communication from New York University. It was that experience that triggered her interest in female leadership and made her embark on its study. Did you know that in PR, 73% of the lower-rung workers are women but 95% of the top leaders are men? In fact, it happens in a lot of industries. Too many.

Carolina has been a speech, voice and communication coach for more than 15 years. In Spain, she coached TV prime-time presenters, call-center reps, politicians, interpreters, actors, singers, entrepreneurs, lawyers, corporate bankers, teachers, CEOs, salespersons, spokespersons, even a fireman and a priest!

In 2013, she started to write for the Huffington Post about what people perceive when they listen to political leaders speak. And since her approach was so innovative, she was interviewed for TV and radio shows, newspapers and magazines.

Since 2017 she’s also a contributing writer for Thrive Global.

She’s also an adventurous cook and baker, an alto singer and a runner.
