I’m an experienced keynote speaker and workshop host. I cover a number of topics based on how to create the “Recipe for success for your food business” whether that is branding, category management, getting ready for initial pitch or negotiation.
Do you have a great food idea but not sure how to get it off the ground? Would you like a guiding hand to get you to the next stage? Do you want someone to take you step by step through developing your product?
A full time Commercial director could cost you around £150k a year. That is a big commitment that your business may not be quite ready for. I can offer you this level of expertise at a fraction of the cost
"I engaged the help of Karen during a period of of intense business transformation. Karen is a natural ‘foodie’, an expert in private-label commercial environments and highly creative, all of which enabled her to add tangible and lasting value to many parts of our business in a short period of time. She is collaborative and supportive with a natural coaching style which she combines effortlessly with excellent commercial effectiveness. It has been a pleasure having Karen on my team and I look forward to working with her again in the future"
"Karen is a role model to her fellow mentors. If I had to think of the ideal mentor, then Karen would be my “archetype""
"Karen's commercial FMCG experience and network is valuable, as she can also provide critical feedback on the commercial opportunities that we are evaluating. I'm really enjoying working with her and looking forward to what success we see in 2018. Definitely recommend her."
"We have recently worked with Karen on the development of a 'Strategic Partnership' with a key global client. Karen's coaching and mentoring skills facilitated the development of our own ideas to complete the plan. The plan has now been agreed with the client and is being implemented throughout 2018."
