Area of expertise/professional superpower?
‘Opportunity generator/turning challenges into winning opportunities.’
Let’s get to know Caroline a little better.
‘Caroline Kay is an advocate for turning challenges into opportunities so that people get more from life and work.
After completing her studies in Art & Design on a full scholarship, she went on to design and build award-winning promotional displays.
Realising she loved selling marketing concepts more than making them, Caroline moved to London in search of an agency role. After a brief stint in media sales, an innovative multimedia start-up headhunted her to secure, design, and deliver industry-first brand and marketing campaigns, which she did for L’Oréal, Vodafone, Google, Warner Bros, and Diageo.
Caroline then worked alongside creatives, strategists, founders, and CEOs within Boutique and elite agencies to secure dream clients for over a decade.
In 2019, Caroline stepped out on her own to provide leaders with greater winning opportunities. She named her company ‘Vincita’, which when directly translated into English, means ‘win’; specifically the success that comes from taking risks or making a bet.
Caroline’s unique blend of proven growth strategies and techniques to access deeper levels of creativity, clarity, and focus, makes her the perfect partner when you decide to go all in and achieve the next level of success.
Caroline’s clients consider her a strategist, consultant, coach, and confidant. Some even say she should wear a mother flippin’ cape.’

Tell us about your podcast – what is it about and what led you to start it?
‘My podcast is Snippets of Genius shares inspiring stories of my GENIUS guests’ ballsy, daring moves, that burst opportunities wide open.
I decided to start a podcast when exploring potential marketing routes to build up awareness of my business. The podcast help to drive traffic to my site, and build connections outside of my existing network but it also does so much more.
For instance, after I did some work on discovering my strengths, it became clear that I’m a connector and a natural extrovert. I needed to lean into these and the Podcast allowed this. Sitting alone writing blogs was torture for me. I did a handful and knew it was not something I was going to be consistent with.
The reason I started the podcast, was to share my knowledge, experience, and expertise but also learn and develop myself. I’ve always found that speaking to people, who are 3, or in some cases, 20 steps ahead of me, gives me business insights and life lessons faster than I could get them anywhere else. Having them break down what they had to overcome and what brought them the most value, is inspiring and energising.
Personally, it keeps me on track. Every time I produce and hit publish on a show, it brings more amazing people into my world. “If the show can help one other person on their journey, it’s done its job”.
Inspiration Space are grateful to Caroline and her wonderful business, Vincita, for sharing these experiences and providing us with the ability to share them with you.
