What Clients Are Saying About Karen

Brett Blake – Direct Selling Leadership Conference Presentation

We were thrilled to have Karen speak to our leaders. So many speakers give their canned speech with no regard to the company’s goals and objectives for a meeting. Karen was so refreshing. She listened in the prep calls we had with her, she came early and sat in the meeting and got context and then stood and provide excellent, on-point, training for our leaders. I would highly recommend her and will invite her back again!

Kim Marquette – Direct Selling Leadership Conference Presentation

Karen joined us at our Leadership Conference in January 2016.  What a delight.  She instantly engaged with the Leaders in the hotel lobby,  gladly joined us for our opening and then lead us as our first keynote speaker. Oh my, the Leaders were on the edge of their seats taking in every word.  She is oh so relatable and makes an intimidating and somewhat daunting subject easy.  She started with an overview and then gave quick, simple and easy to do’s.  You could feel a breeze of relief as the Leaders heard how easy it is to leverage social media with your person to person business. She gave a succinct edict that is unforgettable an spot on, Connect with people, not collect people.

Lynn Poynter – Direct Sales Company Consulting and Training

Karen is so easy to worth with and offers a very collaborative approach to social media consulting. She welcomed our ideas but offered many of her own which have significantly increased the number of shares and reach of our online marketing efforts.  With expertise in both social media and direct sales, Karen blends these two worlds beautifully with strategies that are both consumer and consultant focused.  Karen was quick to learn our business model, and was a true partner to our team managing our day to day presence online.

Lauline Mitchell – General Business Association Meeting Presentation

Karen Clark was recommended to me by a trusted colleague. I had the pleasure of engaging her services for a Social Media speaking event. She responded quickly with excellent ideas and suggestions to ensure our event was successful. While we had a wide range of experience levels, she managed to make the presentation interesting, insightful and fun for everyone involved. We all walked away with new information and specifics that we could apply both professionally and personally. I was very impressed with her knowledge and ability to answer questions on the fly. She was engaging and enthusiastic. I would highly recommend her as a trainer or speaker!

Sheri Dever – Direct Sales Company Training Series

Bedroom Kandi hired Karen Clark to do a series of training videos for our Consultants on social media marketing. It was important to us that our field of Consultants be trained in ethical social media marketing tactics that would positively reflect on our brand while helping our independent business owners grow their businesses.We appreciated Karen’s approach of emphasizing that social media marketing is about education and relationship building, just as we promote in our person to person experiences. Our Consultants found Karen to be relatable, and her training informative. We were impressed with Karen’s professionalism, flexibility and generosity with her expertise! We look forward to working with Karen again in the future.

Patti Gardner – Direct Sales Company National Convention

Karen Clark was a dynamic presenter during one of our general sessions at our annual conference. She provided great training to our consultants on how to really use social media to build their business and to watch out for. Her trainings have helped our consultant to find that balance between social media and face to face communication resulting in a growing business. I would recommend Karen to anyone who’s online and who isn’t these days.

Clare McInerney Stephenson – Authorized Distributor Annual Conference

Karen Clark presented two sessions at Inscape’s annual Distributor conference. The audience of independent training, coaching, and consulting business owners overwhelmingly found that she demystified the world of social media for them. With all the social media noise, it’s hard for business owners to know where to start, where to focus their energy for maximum return, and what not to do. Karen provided them with meaningful, doable, actionable steps. Her topical knowledge is deep, yet she has a brilliant ability to boil complex topics down for people so they can process whether there’s a legitimate business reason for using different social media tools to help grow their businesses.Here’s what attendees said about Karen’s sessions:

  •  “It was not as overwhelming as similar social media sessions I’ve attended. Based on the information shared by Karen, I made a decision I had needed to make for a long time, and left with a doable action item.”
  • “Karen’s tips were practical and easy to implement, I got so much more out of this than previous social media sessions.”
  • “I currently have a blog and have not been using it. Karen provided some fresh ideas and strategies I can implement right away.”

Since we were so pleased with Karen’s knowledge and presentation skills, we also asked her to present two webinars for our Distributors this year. Again, her knowledge and skills with the complex world of social media was evident, and participants walked away with concrete ideas they could use right away.
I highly recommend Karen to other organizations trying to understand social media, and to individuals who need social media expertise in the form of one-on-one coaching.

Jay Leisner – Direct Selling Startup Company Conference

We invited Karen to speak at our Direct Selling Edge Conference ( in Las Vegas, an event held several times per year to educate new and young network marketing and party plan direct selling companies. Karen was an excellent speaker. Her content and delivery were equally stellar. Her topics were social media profiles and how to use social media to grow your company. We look forward to Karen’s participation at our next event.

Peter Karp – Regional Business Leadership Seminar

When Karen spoke to our Leadership Santa Rosa class, she was sensational. She was clear, easy going, knowledgeable, helpful and fun. There is so much information about social media and I appreciate how Karen cut through the morass and suggested ways to make it manageable and effective.

Marion Gellatly – Local Women Entrepreneurs Networking Organization Meeting

Thank you Karen for your great program, Going Local Online.  Our PWN members commented how much value you gave because you made it easy to understand and provided us with a very concise list of take-action steps.  You did a great job at adding a fun and fresh energy to a techie topic that can be intimidating.  The next day, I saw our members setting up their Facebook business pages and connecting like crazy.  Thanks for your valuable information.

Linda D. Lucas – Direct Sales Annual Conference and Leader Retreat

As a Speaker and Trainer Karen brings humor to her audience while she shares her knowledge and builds the skills of others in the direct selling industry. I have worked with Karen Clark as a co-presenter. I have been a member of her audience. As a company executive I have used her as a Speaker/Trainer. I have recommended Karen to those companies whom, as a Business Consultant, I advise. Karen Clark is a “must-have” addition to a national convention, regional conference, or leadership retreat.

Jena Thompson – Direct Selling Company Training Webinars

Our organization was blessed to have Karen as our trainer on social media. Her knowledge on Facebook and Twitter is astounding; not only did we learn the ‘how to’ but she also shared with us proper etiquette, techniques to build your business using social media, and security measures that most of us were not aware of! She trained in a way that made it easy and fun! After her training, we saw an increase in the number of Consultants using social media, and an increase in our own corporate fan page. I would highly recommend Karen as a speaker and trainer on the use of social media for your business, and I look forward to having her train our Consultants, and us, again in the future!
