Enthusiast that brings events to life with connectivity and interaction
Question behind the question.
Karen’s personality stands for positive change with a focus on the human aspect to empower and inspire people. Honest
connection through interaction with an intrinsic interest in asking the question behind the question.
What are the deeper meanings behind people’s answers? Her hunger for knowledge and getting to know the stories behind people is what makes her content.
Curiosity as a weapon.
As a Personal Branding Strategist, Karen developed a striking side: with her flair and openness, she is a born speaker and
presenter, where she is not afraid of large and full event rooms.
Through vast experience and a lot of (solo) traveling, she gradually discovered her UPS: time and again she proved to be able to uncover the core of their existence with professionals and students. Using her curiosity as a great weapon, she always went on that fascinating quest with the people she helped: who are you, what do you want, what can you do and what exactly suits you.
Human empathic touch.
Events are about people. As Karen always says; “People buy from people they trust.”
She is all about the human aspect and their stories: who are you, what do you want, what are your motivations, goals, longings, and what do you want your guests to go home with.
As a master of ceremony and moderator, she provides engagement and interactivity with an intrinsic motivation towards progress and brain circulation. Her goal is that guests go home fueled by the client’s needs such as inspiration.
