Excellent Deliverable

Karen is an expert trainer who knows how to use the time effectively and get the best out of every participant. She is capable of keeping her energy at the same level right throughout the session and has never shown any kind of stress to the participants. She is well prepared on the content and also punctual. These sessions have been one of the best which I have ever attended.

Appreciation of Excellent Diliverable

I was very fortunate to be a trainee of this course. Karen as a trainer has been performing highly effective deliverables throughout the whole course. She has a sound knowledge on the topics and her way of communication is highly effective. All of her sessions were well planned and very interactive. During her session, I fully engaged as I felt very comfortable. Because of Karen, now I am very competent to facilitate online sessions and my knowledge got improved. I got inspired through Karen,  as she, being a female trainer, plays a pivotal role in developing trainers' capacities.  I would recommend Karen, as a trainer, to anybody with high confidence.

Calm and Composed Facilitator

I found Karen to be a composed and calm facilitator with an in-depth knowledge of the subject matter.

It was great to be part of the training co-facilitated by her. I found the inputs provided by her to be very useful in my training programs.

She knew exactly what she was talking about and patiently answered all the queries.

She has also possesses thorough technical knowledge of the online platform.

Wishing Karen all the great success for future.

Brilliant delivery with hypnotic talent to hold attention

Highly skilled in technicalities, Karen can make any topic she delivers look easy and fun to learn. She makes her trainees comfortable yet alert to ensure we understand everything she delivers. The FLOL training was intense with advanced concepts and challenges, yet Karen made us eagerly look forward to each coming session. Our lives will never be the same, since our online delivery was elevated to much higher levels. Thanks so much Karen, and wishing you all the best.

Great learning experience

I liked the way you engaged learners, the activities you used, and the experience you shared. I noticed that you tried to demonstrate what you teach in the class. That makes your lesson easy to understand and apply. I suggest you keep doing that.

A Great Influencer

A leader is an influencer, and Karen is an influencer. I became addicted to her subtle style of influencing while attending the subject course she facilitated for two weeks. Karen is a knowledgeable trainer who is current with cutting-edge techniques and the latest trends and demands in the training industry. She possesses and demonstrates a smiling, enthusiastic, and compassionate personality. It was a treat for me to learn from her. Thank you, Karen, and I wish you all the best in your pursuits of excellence.

Accomplished Master Trainer

It was a pleasure and privilege to learn from Karen. Facilitating Online Learning is not an easy course to teach but Karen handled all the aspects i.e. the facilitation skills element, the online delivery element as well as the use of technology in online learning in a very seamless and confident manner. As a master trainer, she is obviously highly skilled and experienced while maintaining a very warm and approachable attitude when interacting with the participants. 

Thank you Karen for sharing your knowledge and insights. I could not have asked for a better online training experience!

A great 360* approach

This was my first session with Karen and I found her style very effective. She had a 360* approach of imparting knowledge of the contents of the training. She could handle all aspects of the course with ease - whether it was the elements of the training or the tools. I was easily engaged due to her easy-going manner of delivery and I am highly appreciative of the same. I wish her all the best for all future sessions and would love to be connected again on some.

Professional and enthusiastic

Karen has well demonstrated what required to be a professional trainer in this course. The course has been well designed and delivered. Starting from the pre-session to the conclusion, the course design has considered a lot on the objectives and execution details. All the session objectives have been well delivered via presentation, discussion and practice. I have learnt a lot both on the key principles and practical skills. I also learnt what enthusiasm meant from Karen's demonstration on real training course. It's brilliant training experience for me. Thank you, Karen.

Professional and Prepared

I had the chance to attend some classes of the FLO course managed by Karen. She is an experienced and professional trainer - she designs each class with excellent detail, she knows how to engage the learners with activities and therefore each class was very interesting and engaging. 

I really appreciated the effort and commitment, and how she delivered the contents. I learned a lot of useful skills and tips I will use them in my professional career. Recommended!!! Thanks a lot, Karen.
