“I have had an opportunity to see Kari present multiple times in front of a variety of audiences. She is incredibly engaging and I love watching her weave stories into her presentations in order to emphasize her main point/message. Recently we hired her to present at our 20th Anniversary Event, where she shared the stage with renowned speakers like Dr. Ivan Misner & Brennan Scanlon. Kari’s presentation definitely left attendees wanting more. I would highly recommend hiring Kari for your next event!”
– Tonya Peterson, BNI MN & Northern WI

“We recently hired Kari to speak at our 20th Anniversary Event and the feedback we received from the participants was phenomenal. Kari has a way of really engaging the audience through the stories she tells. Not only was the content and delivery on point, her message really hit home with the attendees. In fact, many of them shared with me weeks later that they were so inspired by her presentation that they’ve been working on adding stories into their marketing too! I’d highly recommend hiring Kari as a keynote speaker for your next conference or event, you won’t be disappointed.”
– Nancy Giacomuzzi, BNI International

“Kari has been a fantastic LinkedIn resource and her recent ‘LinkedIn: Powerhouse Profiles & Profitable Prospecting’ class was filled with oodles of useful information. I left feeling confident about how to create and maintain a strong profile and the true importance of embracing LinkedIn for any professional. I will definitely be attending additional classes and events conducted by Kari in the future.”
– Suzanne Krusell Smith, Marketing Manager at EFS Advisors

“Kari is an absolute whirlwind of knowledge about marketing and positive energy for every project. During our time presenting at a recent LinkedIn seminar, I was repeatedly impressed by her deep understanding of effective social media use and her ability to develop recommendations that are useful in everyday practice.”
– Jon Bauer, Vertical Marketing Integrated Marketing Manager at The Nerdery
