"Karen brought our corporate values to life in a way that made them meaningful to everyone in the room." Kelly Glass, Interac Association & Acxsys Corporation
"When organizational staff hear “sensitivity training” or "workplace harassment training”, they sometimes become resistant or switch off. We wanted to work with an expert who engaged staff, got them on board and also made it ‘stick’.
Having interviewed other experts in the field, what stood out about Karen was her authenticity and direct approach. She speaks from business realities, not a text book.
Once on board, Karen was very proactive: she took the time to understand our organization, checked in with us as she developed content, tailored her work to resonate with our organization and delivered on time on all agreed timelines. During the sessions, Karen quickly established her credibility and created a safe space by skilfully involving everyone in the discussions, including dissenting voices, which is not easy when people come from different cultures, religions, sexual orientations etc.
Karen exceeded our expectations because she didn’t just deliver the run-of-the-mill training. She brought our corporate values to life in a way that made them meaningful to everyone in the room and ultimately, impacted the organizational culture. After the sessions the feedback from every level of the organisation was consistently positive. Leadership and staff loved Karen’s energy, her story telling approach, her real life examples, and her contagious passion for equality."
