~ Jim Rubin - Senior Consultant, Business Development, The Center for Organizational Excellence
Mindy Pope - Vice President, Organizational Performance and Implementation Aon Consulting
“I had the pleasure of working with Karen for several years. She is an exceptional project manager and an insightful instructional designer. Karen demands excellence in her own work and is able to draw it out in others. With an ability to manage, ‘do,’ and help others learn her craft, Karen is in a class by herself. As an instructional designer, Karen dealt with extremely challenging and highly controversial subject matter and did so with great empathy and respect for the ‘end user’. I would gladly take any opportunity to work with Karen again. Your project will only be better if you are lucky enough to have her on your team.”
Trevor Acutt - PricewaterhouseCoopers Project Manager, Wells Fargo Bank Project
“I had worked with Karen on a previous engagement and when I heard that she was available to work at Wells Fargo, I jumped at the opportunity to get her there. As usual it has been a pleasure working with Karen and her team. She has maintained an exceptionally high level of performance with minimal oversight. Karen was a role model on the project, always eager to assist and responsive to turning deliverables around in a very short time. Her deliverables were always of the highest quality. She was always in control of the staff she managed. She was able to assess the culture at Wells Fargo extremely well. I look forward to my continued working with Karen as I know that she will always deliver a very high quality product on time..”
Jean Heller - Price Waterhouse Training Lead, Adaptec Project
“Karen has an approachable, confident style which was appreciated by the client. Her personable and open communications style, within and outside the classroom, was admired by Karen's Adaptec counterpart, by the Training Supervisor as well as by trainees and colleagues. Karen's training materials are clear, comprehensive, accurate and easy to follow. Trainees and other trainers often commented that Karen's materials were "written in plain English" rather than in obscure "consultant-ese," making them extremely easy to follow for people at all skill levels.”
Cameron Crosby - VP, Capgemini, Telco, Media and Entertainment
“Karen is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is extremely conscientious in her work and professional in both the quality of her deliverables and the presentation to the client.…[Her] performance in turning in excellent courses and developing a positive rapport with the key users and class participants helped earn the training area of the project high marks from the client.”
