Carolyn Viso

Head of Learning & Development, Phocas

Carolyn Viso is a self-confessed learning geek, with 15 years of experience across a variety of industries, from steel caps and safety glasses, insurance policies to APIs, lipsticks to more white sneakers that she’d ever thought she’d own. 

Born in Perth, Carolyn started in training, talent and organisational development during the WA mining boom, followed by a late (and great!) gap year travelling 5 of the 7 continents of the world. A move to Melbourne saw a shift into retail and diving deep into leadership development and learning design, followed by a contentious move to Sydney (yes, Melbourne has better coffee and Sydney has better beaches!). In Sydney, she’s discovered a knack for building L&D and People functions from the ground up with high growth, “start up to scale up” teams at THE ICONIC, Cover Genius and now Phocas.
