When I think of how the PCMA Global Business Events Executive of the Year recognizes and celebrates not only excellence as a professional, but also advancement and education of the industry, Carola’s dedication to improving global economic and social progress immediately comes to mind. Her work in the Netherlands and around the world personifies passion, dedication and vision.
