GOING BEYOND THE BRAND – Delivering WOW Customer Service by Living the Brand!
Customer focused teams go Beyond the Brand, breathing new life into your organization using Karen’s CPR Engagement concept; where people feel Connected, Protected, and Respected.

Forester research states that 90% of American consumers form their perception of companies based primarily on the service experience. When your employees live your brand and spread your brand’s vision, they deliver a WOW customer experience.

Today all businesses are redefining their mission and vision as their brand promise expands to employee engagement. Your brand is the core of your company. It is the heart of your business, the soul of your culture, and the foundation for delivering an exceptional customer experience.

If you are looking for an upbeat presentation on the Generations look no further. Karen McCullough’s Generational Advantage keynote takes a positive approach to generations in the workplace and in your organization. She humor and insights challenge assumptions and explore new ways of thinking age and contributions.

Today, the workplace days of “one size fits all” and “treat everyone the same” are gone. Karen helps leaders and teams understand the distinct generational differences and how to flex to meet each group and individual in a personal and supportive way building trust, motivation, while inspiring and retaining talent. Karen will show you how to tap into the knowledge and strengths of your multigenerational team to give you The Generational Advantage.

The pace of change is accelerating and is more complex. Change is occurring more frequently, and can become overwhelming. Today we all need new tools and rituals to help us not only survive, but thrive in this world of technology, innovation, and disruption. In her keynote program, Change is Good, Karen empowers you with three critical steps to lead and inspire change. She will debunk several myths around motivating change while sharing the missing links to growing a culture of change and modifying behavior.

Whether your natural instinct is to embrace change or to run from it, this program is for you! You will leave with the tools to develop a “change mindset”. This will enable you to access new ways of communication, develop new skills, and make a shift in thinking. It’s time to get excited about change. Are you ready see the opportunities change presents?

It was only a few years back organizations defined diversity with numbers – focusing on how many employees of color, faith, sexual preference or the percentage of female versus male executives were in their organization.

Today, driving and managing diversity and inclusion involves much more than your teams’ skin color, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or age. Today diversity and inclusion encompasses the ability to recognize, include and inspire the spirit of belonging, engagement, and inclusion in today’s workplace and the world. In this presentation Karen McCullough will inspire you to drive the diversity and inclusion culture. Karen is passionate about inspiring others to gain awareness, appreciation, acceptance and move into positive action. Each of us has the power to make a difference embracing the spirit of inclusion.

    "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!"
