"Thank you for two very good days on Thursday and Friday. The team will grow from strength to strength from here."
Just a personal note to say thank you for what you have taught me, made me think of and energised me to make plans to act on. One day I will tell you how critical this training was for me and how it has directed my thoughts and emotions. Thanks for all the jokes, you were hilarious.
Our session with Karen, reminded me of how much babies cry when you want to bathe them, even though the water is warm. And then they cry when you take them out of the water too. This team of mine reminded me of that situation. Thank you Karen, we will be back.
Municipal Manager, Amathole
"Thanks for the Emotional Intelligence workshop during the past 3 days. I guess one is never too old or too wise to improve the old makeup. I found the content really honest and I certainly took positive value home with me."
I met Karen early in 1997 when she owned Head Hunters Recruitment, and thereafter used her services as required. Karen proved to be extremely professional in her approach, and provided an excellent and reliable service. Karen is definitely a "people's person" who is highly motivated, and the energy she exudes through her positive approach to life and its challenges is easily able to encourage others to reach for their dreams!
Karen has continued to develop her knowledge and skills over the years, and has received numerous accolades and recognition for her work. Karen is a true professional, and a leader in her field who can be relied on to deliver exceptional results. I therefore recommend her without hesitation.

“Karen is a consummate professional business woman, fully committed to encouraging others to develop their full potential. ”
“I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of BNI and myself to thank you sincerely for your contribution to our “celebration” this morning. Your message struck a chord with all there and I sat with a huge lump in my throat for most of it. Your message was from the heart and speaking to a member afterwards, she said; “Oh, the mascara was running!” The feedback received was absolutely awesome, and I can only ascribe it to the calibre of speaker such as yourself who so gladly and selflessly gave of your time and expertise. Karen is the definition of performance, and she is a pleasure to work with.”
Business Network International
"I want to tell you how much I enjoy being connected with you. You are such a open-giving person and that really shines through. Thank you!"
Michelle Clarke, Coach CT.
"I recently had the pleasure of attending an Emotional Intelligence (EI) workshop with Karen Kelly, and it was most enlightening, and conducted in a very professional manner. The EI course was an eye opener for me and a great starting point to be able to learn to identify, assess and manage the emotions, of not only myself but also others around me. To be in the company of a woman like Karen Kelly is energising, I wish I could attend more courses on a regular basis."
"Your calm and sensible approach to life is so wonderful. Thank you for caring and stay as awesome as you are. Your call made my morning and I feel more relaxed about everything."
"A huge thank you for your help. You travelled that extra mile to visit and get a hands-on view of our small rural business. Before professional “life coaching”, minor problems caused frustrations to the extent of crawling up the wall. You held our hand for the initial period and now we are walking cautiously with confidence. With more interaction with you I am sure we will run an organisation we are all proud of. Our new bold catch phrase is “Good is the enemy of Great” Looking forward to periodic interactions with you."
"Thank you for the training session today. It has opened my eyes and generated feelings in me that I never thought I had. I am eager to put some of the tools into practice. I believe there will be a fundamental improvement in my private and professional life."
"I would like to really thank you from the bottom of my heart for a wonderful course. It's been a long time since I found such a lot of enjoyment in something. I'm sorry it had to end. I have to commend you on the way you project yourself, I just love the type of person that you are. I wish there were more people like you, as you project such enthusiasm, Just listening to you has made me look at myself & my life in a whole different way. These last 3 days have really touched me. It's like a light being turned on in a dark room!!! I fully intend to put all that I have learnt to practice in my life, I already feel like a different person! So thank once again thanks for taking the time to do what you do. You're Awesome!!!"
