"I brought Karen in to speak to my professional speakers group. Topic: using powerful visual images as a part of our speaking businesses and careers. I'd seen Karen's photography before, so I already knew that her images themselves would be powerful. And many in our group are motivational and inspirations national speakers, so I knew that her subject would be of great use to them. What I didn't anticipate was seeing an entirely new perspective of how I could use visual images in my topic (personal finance) to really draw people's interest and emotions in. The lens through which I'm refining my speeches now has been shifted significantly! Of the dozens of speakers that have addressed our group, Karen was definitely one of the most unique and impactful!
