Case study

“Karen was recommended by a colleague when I felt my team consisting of several technical IT specialists, who were going through a difficult transitional phase, needed some time out of the office to gel and bond. Karen’s training style and ability to connect with the team, some of whom were a little reluctant to participate in a ‘soft skill’ training exercise, drawing out issues that needing addressing before then helping the team build pragmatic action plans to tackle the issues raised, exceeded all my expectations. 
As a result of those group sessions I felt sufficiently inspired by Karen’s knowledge and style to enlist Karen as a personal coach and mentor and regularly spend time with Karen to help me forge a way forward where I have challenges that are leaving me perplexed and need a sounding board to work through my thoughts.”

IT Project Manager, Global Supply Chain business

“I have to say that the presentation went really well – and I have no doubt that this was due to your help in giving me the techniques to manage my nerves. I’ve had some really positive feedback from both my colleagues in Marketing and members of the audience, who said that I came across as a confident presenter….”.

“A cross between Boadicea and the Dalai Lama – impossible to imagine until you’ve met Karen Kimberley. She’s the business equivalent of a bikini area waxing – you’ll feel better in places you didn’t know you had! Karen has trained more winners than the Mahktoum brothers”.

Guy Browning, author, journalist and film director
