Siobhan Stirling : Sterling Words
“ I had been stuck for some time trying to work out who my ideal clients are. I spent a day with Karen and she took me through a number of exercises to pin down exactly the kind of work – and clients – that give me the biggest rewards, not just financially but in terms of ticking the boxes that make me excited to work on a project and want to leap out of bed in the morning. At the end of the day I had much more clarity about the clients that I need to be looking for and why they might want to come to me – and therefore how to appeal to them. Karen’s process and leadership is helping me shape my vision, strategy and offering. ”
Vikki Todd : Striped Leopard Accountancy
“ I started my own accountancy practice in April and was finding it very difficult to communicate my USP’s effectively on paper as I was still holding on to a need to appear ‘corporate’. I met Karen through a networking group and as soon as she opened her mouth I decided I wanted to work with her. She is so passionate about marketing and branding, her experience shines through and she has a very refreshing, direct approach which I really appreciate.
I found working with Karen just as I imagined it would be, I spent three amazing half days with her and we picked my business apart and put it back together again in a way that completely motivated and energised me.
My vision and goals are now crystal clear to me. I have established what I want my brand to look, feel and sound like. I have defined who my client base is and totally restructured my packages. I am now on the right track and could not be more excited about the future.
Karen enabled me to clarify what my business is all about, she has given me confidence, energy and motivation. Also, it was so much fun to work with her. She is a truly inspiring business woman and I literally cannot recommend her enough.
If you are thinking of using Karen then stop thinking about it, just do it. You will absolutely miss out on the most amazing journey if you don’t. ”
Philippa Richard : You Just Rightsize Ltd
“ I had a clear idea of how I wanted my business and brand to look but wasn’t sure whether it was right for my target market. Karen helped me get that clarity – she confirmed that the overall image was good and suited my personality and approach, but that maybe I should be thinking about a slightly different audience. She also gave me advice about where next to focus my marketing efforts. I’m still working through those actions but I’m feeling far more comfortable and decisions feel easier now I have the clarity AND confidence. ”
Louise Pepper : Bespoke Financial Planning
“ Whenever I see or think of Karen, I cant help but smile :-). She has an amazing personality and is so energetic. I personally think that it is good to surround yourself with positive and motivational people – Karen fits this bill 100%. She is a true expert in her field and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Karen to any of my clients or contacts. ”
Hilbre Johnson : Transform Life Coaching
“ Karen is one of the most highly energised and enthusiastic women I have worked with. By working with Karen I was able to get clear on who I really wanted to work with. Along with this we did a whole re-brand and a total re-build of my website so that everything reflects the coach that I am today.
Karen has a very structured approach which she outlines at the beginning so you know exactly what you are getting and will have at the end.
I would say what sets Karen apart from almost anyone else I have met is her passion for what she does and the presence she has when she arrives to a session – you can’t help getting caught up in her enthusiasm, but most importantly she delivers results.
I am in the process of working with Karen for a second time to kick start my new Health coaching business. ”
Jeanne Steele : JBS Consulting
“ I hired Karen to help me work out who I want to market my services to, how, and how to price what I offer. I knew that her breadth & depth of experience with blue chip companies would mean her work would be of high quality. I didn’t realise though how much energy and passion Karen would bring to our work, and how honest, supportive and empowering she would be to work with. She totally rocks. ”
Claire Hulott : Chulo Naturals
“ Larger than life and full of knowledge is how I would best describe Karen – if your looking for “strong go get ’em” advice this is the woman for you! ”
Helen Dearlove : LifeAfterWorkLife
“ Karen is one of those rare people who knows a lot but imparts it in such a user-friendly way that it is more fun than learning. She is warm, approachable and very knowledgeable, and I can’t wait for part 2 of how to use social media for business. ”
