From the start, our initial call six months prior to our event, Karen was phenomenal…easy to work with, friendly, open-minded and professional. Booking her and setting up the program as our keynote speaker was ‘low-maintenance’; which I truly appreciated since I was dealing with 30 other outside speakers. And she delivered…she opened it and WOWED our audience and provided a buzz that carried on throughout our 3-day event. A VP in our organization, with 25 years of experience here, labeled her ‘easily one of the top 3 keynote speakers we have ever have.’ Well done, Karen! I would hire her again in a heartbeat. 5/4/17
