Recruitment Coordinator / Iowa Department of Transportation

“Karen is smart and laugh out loud funny! She knows branding! Saying she was a pleasure to work with is an understatement. She took the time to get to know the Iowa Department of Transportation and crafted her message to reinforce the goals we had for our leadership conference. The conference theme was Momentum, so we worked with Karen to tailor her Beyond the Brand presentation to compliment the theme of the conference. Karen took that concept one step further and helped the group think beyond the company brand and understand their own “personal brand” and the effect it has on the work we do and the people we serve. Her 90 minute keynote had the audience engaged the entire time through humor and interacting with one another. What a refreshing way to end the conference.”

Craig Tew

Event and Content Manager / American Notary Association

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
