“Motivational speaker, Karen McCullough is the perfect mix of content and comedy!”Kansas Family Business Forum
“Karen, Your opening session ranked the highest. The energy and message set the tone for the entire conference. Many parts of your presentation were quoted throughout the conference. If I had a nickel for every time I heard, “You rock!” – Both you and I could retire.”
Scott Joslove, President and CEO Texas Hotel & Lodging Association
“Karen’s enthusiasm and energy had the whole room locked. She was the highlight of the conference.”The UPSTART Spring Summit

It was truly a pleasure to work with Karen as a general session keynote speaker for our conference. The time that she took getting to know our organization in advance and customizing her presentation was evidenced by the tremendous engagement in the room with our attendees. The audience response was immediate. Even our most hesitant stakeholders made a point of sharing their elation with me after the session. Most importantly, everyone in the session left the room with tangible takeaways. Thank you, Karen, for helping us to take our general session from credible, to INCREDIBLE!

It is my pleasure to recommend Karen McCullough – she did an outstanding job at our convention. Attendees ranged in age from 18 to 85, and they all took something away. Change is Good – You Go First! People took selfies, interacted with each other, which is not the norm for our people. Not a negative word about Karen’s keynote – I sent her name across the country to all of my counterparts in the credit union industry – Karen is a Home Run!
