Program Components


 All participants will complete a questionnaire so as the workshop can be tailored to meet specific needs. In this way, optimum learning will be achieved during the workshop. Prep forms and resources will be emailed along with Zoom login details, prior to the workshop.


During this 2hr interactive workshop, you will work through proven processes which will enhance how you make those first connections.

This program is highly interactive, fast-moving and will have each person in the group speaking up at various times throughout the session. While there is an overall atmosphere of fun there is also a serious amount of learning taking place.

Although a professional in my field, I lacked the confidence when it came to giving presentations to groups of people I didn’t know. I found out about Karen through a friend and signed up for her 1 to 1 executive coaching program. Karen’s enthusiasm and energy boosted my confidence. I learned invaluable speaking tools which have become the framework on which I build engaging presentations… totally enjoyable experience working with Karen.

I had the pleasure of attending one of Karen's Masterclasses recently. Karen delivered a results-orientated workshop where I discovered a formula to quickly and effectively prepare an engaging presentation. We gave our presentation to the group, so even got a bit of practice in too. I'd highly recommend Karen to anyone seeking to up their 'presentation' game. I cannot wait to put these new found skills into practice!

Fiona WalshPowerPoint Coach

I attended one of Karen’s recent workshops and really enjoyed it. Karen is a master at her craft. She breaks down her training into simple steps and by the end of you ready to address the nation. Her training is fun & you walk away with new & improved skills.

Everyone enjoyed the workshop which was both theoretical and practical to ensure we all engaged. With our latest event that is currently being organised, the once petrified presenters are now implementing the techniques that they have been thought by you and actually looking forward to presenting at the event. For any organisations that are looking to give their employees the confidence to present, Karen’s can do attitude and motivational approach will have you speaking in front of an audience in no time at all.
