Client endorsements for Karen Schmidt

“I have received a great deal of feedback from our members, who voted your session their favourite in the business stream at the 2013 conference. You provided them with insights on how to nurture their staff and create succession plans for strong leaders in their businesses. I believe they are now feverishly fertilising their gardens!” Oliver Judd, Executive Director, National Electrical and Communications Association NSW & ACT


“Karen is remarkably easy to work with. She is professional, reliable and always delivers what she says she will. On top of that, her sessions are creative, inspiring and most importantly, applicable. Guests always leave with ideas they can implement immediately and easily. As an event organiser this is a recipe for success. I recommend Karen without reservation for speaking, training and coaching (and with gardening tips thrown in for good measure!).” Joanne Nyland, Manager Alumni Services, Griffith University School of Business


“Karen showed a comprehensive understanding of the types of organisations present and the issues they face. She made it easy for people to relate to the concepts via her gardening analogy, the sharing of personal experiences and the interactive nature of her delivery.  The time she spent with participants outside her presentations extended the engagement she had with the event.” Colin Kemp, Executive Officer, Community Technology Centres Association


“Karen was colourful, professional and polished. Even though she is a very well recognised and awarded speaker, she is still very much ‘real’ and, from an event organisers perspective, so wonderfully easy to work with.” Lynne Wilbraham, Manager Economic Development, Gympie Regional Council


“Delegate feedback showed they were very impressed with your presentations. They loved your gardening analogy, combined with your engaging and animated presentation style.” Nicola Young, Conference Chair, Association of Queensland Nurse Leaders


“Karen is a vibrant, entertaining and informative speaker and brought a great dynamic to a crowd of over 100. Her presentation appeared effortless and polished and she engaged the audience in a thought-provoking discussion with wit and humour.” Allison Radcliffe, President, The Association for Women in Insurance QLD


“Karen was great: approachable, punctual and clearly read the audience well. She did her research and engaged with the delegates” Suellen Holland, Event Organiser, Association School Business Administrators QLD


“Karen’s gardening analogy extended to planting, watering, weeding and fertilizing our employees (not literally) to maximise their growth, productivity and efficacy. She presented a fabulous and practical overview of team engagement for typically smaller health practices, with ideas we could implement as soon as we got back to work.” Craig Allingham, Australian Physiotherapy Association conference


“Karen’s thought provoking ‘green fingers’ approach generated very positive insight, learning and great feedback from our clients. I would highly recommend Karen as your next presenter.” Paul Jagger, CEO, The Business Centre Pilbara, WA


“Karen’s session provided a good framework in how to develop culture in a team. Her light hearted approach to an important and serious subject contributed to this being a positive conference. In the lead up to the session I appreciated the various discussions we had in order to ensure the session would hit the mark.” Natasha Hynes, Program Manager, Department of Human Services
