She is not your typical customer service speaker!
Kare quickly had us enthralled as she spoke passionately of how we can make more of a lasting impact with our patients by how we position ourselves, what we wear, and how we speak. We have enjoyed many excellent lectures on patient satisfaction in the past and Kare’s talk repeated none of what we had heard before, and had us planning on how we would enter the office the next day before she was even finished speaking.
She was determined that we learn methods to teach our patients that would leave them with lasting knowledge and even the slowest of us in the group soon realized that she was demonstrating her techniques on the audience through a lively interaction. The allotted time was all too quickly exhausted and we cannot wait for the opportunity to enjoy a refresher.
Her passion for her subject matter was even more evident by how she chose to spend her free time between talks: touring several of our practice sites with an eye toward design for satisfaction –concepts with which we have had little experience but it would behoove us to acquire more. I’m having my office re-carpeted in hunter green before she comes back to the East Coast…”

“I heard Kare speak at IACC and her presentation made such an impact I knew we needed her as our General Session speaker. Her unique way of illustrating her dialogue is so ‘memorable’ I look forward to working with her again.”
~ Karen Pendleton, Wyndham Peachtree Conference Center
“She has an uncommon ability to help communicators engage powerfully with their audiences, both in substance and with critical emotional connection. It is in this latter area where she has given me great insights that I use literally every day of professional and, for that matter, personal life. I recommend Kare without reservations to anyone who has complex and mission-critical communication/interaction challenges.”
~ Bob Jones, Vice President, Cisco Systems
“She brings a fact based intellectual style that proved extremely valuable to our research staff. Having been through numerous conferences over 30 years, without a doubt Kare’s presentation and methods were the most helpful.
~ Terry Penney, National Renewable Energy Laboratory
~ Leigh Steinberg, sports agent
“Kare has that rare capacity to synthesize vast amounts of information and find the common, human threads that reach even diverse audiences in a highly personal way. She has a gift for sharing powerful ideas — whether she’s speaking to 2 people or 2,000 — in a way that makes everyone in the room feel like she’s speaking only to them.”
“At the IABC World Conference Kare gave a ovation-drawing presentation and got whole new set of professional fans. And the content itself? Stunning! I came away with more ideas from her 50 minutes than I had the entire three days of conferencing before her — what she doesn’t know about how to get small teams to collaborate and innovate is not worth knowing! I cannot recommend Kare highly enough — as a speaker, as a knowledge-sharer, as a fount of wisdom. And as a wonderful, warm and funny human being.”
~ Lee Hopkins, Director of Buzz, Better Communication Results
“In the world of professional speakers, Kare is one of those rare individuals who is a warm, enthusiastic, compassionate – and can deliver good solid content in a very professional way. Kare has such a genuine conversational style that you want to listen to her. From that, everything simply falls into place. Beyond her top-notch content, it’s also a sheer joy to work with her.”
~ Janice Mashak, Director of Member Services at Wisconsin Association of Homes and Services for the Aging
~ Steve Douty, Vice President, Applications at Yahoo!
“Kare is very charismatic, with keen curiosity, and very insightful. She works with very high powered individuals as a messaging coach. Her assignments have been staggering, ranging from the Obama campaign to CEO’s of large companies. She is kind, principled, calm, and very effective.”
~ Nigel Ten Fleming, CEO of A-CUBE and Chairman of G2B Pharma
“Kare delivered a great keynote speech at our conference. She was funny, insightful, polished and professional. She really connected with our audience and left them thinking about how they could make changes in both their professional and personal lives.”
~ Ted Hopton, Global Community Manager at UBM
“Working with Kare is an amazing experience. She brings a clarity and focus to a project or topic like no other. The depth and breadth of her knowledge inspires those who work with her to be at the top of their game and accomplish more than they thought they could.”
~ Cory Cancila, Senior V.P., Equity Residential
“Kare is one of the most innovative presenters on interpersonal communication you could hope to encounter. Just one session with her, and you’ll have a unique perspective on your career and your life.”
~ Jeff Davidson, Founder, Breathing Space Institute
“Kare provided fantastic consulting services. She really nudged me to get out of the narrow box of obvious partners/referral sources and into other sectors. This has been so expansive and liberating!!!! Kare is smart, focused, and goal oriented – yet ethical, fun to work with and enormously supportive. I could not recommend her more highly.”
~ Tessa ten Tusscher, Living Well
“Kare was the one who got through to me right away that I needed a coach, even though many others had failed. That says she knows how to get a point across. She focused me on my message, so that people I speak with will be more motivated to ask questions and share my own excitement with what I do and send me referrals”
~ Steve Carter, Financial Advisor at Northwestern Mutual
“There’s coaching, and there is Coaching with Kare. After our first phone call – and after my head stopped spinning – I realized I had made a profound change in the way I defined who I was, what I did and what I wanted to do going forward. It’s not an exaggeration to use words like incredibly insightful, empathetic. Very powerful, deeply sensitive, and gentle to describe the way Kare works with you and for you. She helps you find your best self.”
~ David Grebow, CEO, KnowledgeStar
“Kare’s expertise in “smart partnering” is renowned. Her coaching style is what I would describe as tough love. She is warm and giving, yet she keeps you focused on your goals relentlessly and requires you to confront your own attitudes that may be holding you back.”
~ Anita Campbell, CEO, Small Business Trends
“Of the three speaking coaches I have interviewed over the past several months none of them gave me value anywhere near Kare’s. In one hour Kare gave me more ideas than I ever believed possible. Unbelievable how much she taught me and was able to look at my target industries with little preliminary knowledge of them.”
~ Bart Gragg, Blue Collar University
“The results exceeded our expectations and the feedback from the event was very positive. We’ve had numerous requests to invite Kare to speak to again. Many who attended said that they felt it was a career changing event.”
~ Shonda Godley, Walmart Finance Division
“Kare easily captures your attention. I first heard her at least 10 years ago talking about how to make yourself memorable, when you speak. And she did — I still remember what she said and the examples she used.”
~ Vernel Larner, technology leader
“Kare is a pragmatic visionary. She has the rare ability to see trends and needs far in advance, yet she is always firmly anchored in the here and now. Best of all, she makes the connections that allow people to take action, get results, and create meaningful change for themselves and others.”
~ Molly Gordon, Owner, Shaboom, Inc.
“Kare is a marvel: consummate communicator, insightful strategist, skillful reader of people, masterful coach. Passionate and engaged, and generous beyond expectation with her considerable gifts. I learn and am uplifted each time we speak.”
~ Gil Friend, CEO, Natural Logic, Inc.
~ Elaine Bott, Venice Regional Medical Center
“Kare assisted us with creating succinct, meaningful marketing messaging to represent a large government-sponsored IT initiative across the nation. Kare provided excellent insight as to how we could a make very dry topic interesting.
