    "Our colleagues thoroughly enjoyed her presentation and sense of humor. Her style was exactly what we needed during this difficult time."
    --Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC

    "The customer comments have been pouring in. We held our bi-annual distributor's meeting with customers representing more than 30 countries in attendance. Karen's presentation on working in and selling to a multi-generational society was outstanding. Karen really took the time to do her homework and understand our 130 year old industry. She kept the energy level high and interactive. Within days after the event I had co-workers and customers tell me that they had already applied the information they took away from Karen's presentation. They were able to relate generational differences to both their work and personal lives. Karen was gracious enough to share her PowerPoint presentation so that I could send it out to the many that requested a copy. Good communication is the key to success and Karen helped us understand how to best give and receive communication!"
