Bob Geens, Chairman, Advantia Business Solutions Limited

Team development is something that Karen is extremely good at.  I have seen her recognise talent, nurture and bring on individuals and help them to achieve their potential.  She has a wide ranging practical knowledge of all aspects of marketing and enjoys nothing more than passing on her experience to others in a supportive and professional manner.  With a can-do attitude that rubs off on everyone around her she has achieved great results for Advantia including re-launching the company with a new name and identity; and re-vamping and launching our own brand range of products a year later.
