“Karen was a revolution for our company and for me personally. She helped us reorganize our sales and support team to set us up for growth and success in the future. She also helped me substantially in my own personal growth and leadership skills. Her compassion and professionalism means that she always goes above and beyond in her dealings with companies and individuals. I can't wait to work with Karen again in the future!”

Gary Davies

"Karen is the personification of professional. Karen and I first worked together in Calgary in 2008. She joined my organization in the midst of the Great Recession and, in the course of three years, turned around an under-performing sales team into a well-oiled, revenue-generating machine that regularly broke monthly sales records.

Karen is a true leader, a tireless worker, and her positive attitude is infectious to not only those who work with her, but also to everyone around her.

I would not hesitate to work with Karen again and continue to call upon her for strategic sales expertise."

Gary Davies | Strategic Business Advisor

"We contracted Karen to manage the sensitive transition of our publication British Columbia Magazine from our organization to the private sector. I had previously worked with Karen in her capacity as Vice President, Sales at Canada Wide Media and found her extremely knowledgeable and professional. 

Karen was an absolute delight to work with and I would not hesitate to engage her services in future."

Blessed with an uncanny ability to place herself in the clients' shoes, and always with her clients' needs and best interests in mind, Karen can balance those needs with the organization’s bottom line and margin requirements, allowing her to walk anyone through a win-win proposal. A strategic thinker, Karen has the distinct ability to see the big picture - and then break it down into achievable manageable steps.

A leader, motivating and energizing, Karen can work with sales professionals individually, as well as in teams, to ensure they all achieve their goals.
