Karla Congson, EVP, Client Leader | Y & R Brands Canada

What I love about Karen is her personality and her sense of humour. She's disarming and funny so audiences pay attention. It's also the language she chooses - her words and storytelling style are funny, edgy and challenging in the best possible way. She's pushes you to think differently. It's clear that she's smart and she is such a credible expert. I am so confident hiring her and putting in front of any client because I know they are going to be engaged and educated. Karen's delivery and incredibly personable approach creates instant chemistry and trust which means our clients hear and apply more of what she has to say.

Sharon Avery, Chief Development Officer | UNICEF Canada

There is so much richness in Karen's background, expertise and approach. She is deeply, deeply curious and is, as a result, connected to so many philosophies, disciplines, ideas and ways of approaching problems that her perspective is provocative, powerful and enlightening. Whenever I have had Karen in to speak or facilitate workshops she's like a spotlight, lighting up the dark corners of opportunity and illuminating the path forward. Her approach is creative, joyful, inquisitive, funny and fun.

Jennifer Davidson, Vice President, Marketing | Molson Coors Canada

I really appreciate the passion, humour and frankness Karen brings to any presentation. She has the ability to critique, tell the truth and to deliver information and insight that challenges assumptions in a way that really lands. She talks and you listen. She's great on her feet and has a talent for reading a room and adjusting her approach accordingly - all without compromising the content or the spirited delivery. A very charismatic speaker!
