Founder of the not-for-profit organisation Kanchi and its pioneering social franchise The Ability Awards, social entrepreneur Caroline Casey is driving societal change aimed at nothing less than a complete reframing of disability. Central to her and Kanchi’s approach is the idea that as a powerful, all-pervasive influence in society, business can lead this change – and lead it well. And where business succeeds, Caroline believes, the rest of society will naturally follow. It’s just a question of harnessing and channelling that influence in the right way.


Caroline’s success and vision have seen her win many accolades. She was the first Irish person to be appointed a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum. She is also an Ashoka Fellow and an Eisenhower Fellow, and holds an honorary doctorate from National University Ireland. Currently she sits on the board of a number of media and charity organisations in Ireland. She is also co-founder of British conservation charity Elephant Family, which promotes habitat conservation for the Asian elephant.



Caroline’s energy and enthusiasm have made her a sought-after public speaker. She has become a well-known figure in the Irish media world and has also travelled the globe to speak on her leadership work at prestigious events and forums including the Global Competitiveness Forum, the Clinton Global Initiative, Davos and the TED Talks. She also speaks at corporate events around the world on areas such as leadership, management, motivational and social entrepreneurship.
Her humour, passion and humanity mean she is always worth hearing.
