I have worked with Carolyn for 15 years, first at Compensation Resource Group through our merger with Clark Consulting, then Retirement Capital Group, and now my new company, PleinAire Strategies. I wouldn’t be without her or her services.  She first put us on the map at CRG, and that was such a positive experience we continued to work with her as part of our competitive strategy. We deal with C-suite executives and directors of some of the largest companies in the country. She understands our industry, so I can come up with an idea or concept and she does the research and writing from a to z, making complex topics understandable. I highly recommend Carolyn to everyone, except my competitors, as she has given us the competitive advantage we want

Carolyn Smith is clearly one of the brightest and most creative people I have ever known in my over 40 years of professional experience. She has few peers when it comes to innovative marketing strategy and execution. She is very smart, with a keen grasp of a wide array of business organizations

Carolyn is so easy to work with and always finds a way to quickly deliver compelling copy — she amazes me! I highly recommend Carolyn for her professional, positive attitude and superior writing skills.

Carolyn (and her staff) provided our company a full range of marketing services for over seven years: marketing intelligence, strategy, branding, communication, and sales ideas that led to a strong economic performance for our company. In addition to a high energy level, Ms. Smith demonstrated commitment, responsibility, and the interpersonal skills to handle challenging situations.

I needed to package my consulting services at a higher level to gain a competitive edge. Carolyn interviewed me once, and in no time, she produced several sales pieces that enable me to better communicate my value proposition. She’s a critical thinker and excellent business writer.
Jill, ”President,






Carolyn was the creative engine for our entire rebranding efforts and new website. Her mere presence always brings our team to life with new ideas. Carolyn has a way of looking at our business from the client’s eyes that is so valuable and she can put our rough notions into richly presented words that we could never dream up on our own.

I worked with Carolyn in New York when Airbus really began to penetrate the US market; they were exciting but tough times and she was great fun to work with, full of ideas, and enthusiasm. But what I remember most is her dedication and professionalism.
