Innovative Impact

Imagine a speaker who provides inspiring, interactive programs filled with research-based content and immediate take-aways. Visualize your audience engaged, energized, and laughing. Award winning International Speaker Karen E. Purves M.A. has built a solid client base providing these results for nearly 20 years! Karen blends relatable stories, leading edge research and proven solutions to impact your attendees so they can leave a program saying their time was truly well spent. In the last decade, neuroscience has made incredible strides in understanding how the results of communication affect others' thoughts, emotions, and responses. As a communication expert specializing in Interpersonal Neurobiology principles and affective neuroscience findings, Karen shares immediately usable tips for communication via email, phone and in person, both internally with staff or externally for customer service, sales, or marketing.

In addition to being described as “one of the best” or “favorite” speakers of entire conferences dozens of times, other attendee comments include: “Refreshingly honest”, “contagiously enthusiastic”, “attention grabber and keeper”, “breath of fresh air” and giving “real answers to real life”.

Karen combines a Bachelor’s Degree in Business, Master’s Degree in Public Policy and over 25 years business experience along with extensive training at “The Second City” to leave audiences feeling energized, inspired, and empowered. Karen also has the rare distinction of being a 3-time game show winner! These accomplishments allow Karen to connect with audiences as few others can.  

 Throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and Australia - from Fortune 100 companies to associations and government - Karen guarantees that attendees will receive useful material, in an engaging way, and practical tools to implement immediately!

From my experience, the value my sessions could bring to Financial Advisors would likely be in communicating effectively over the phone and in person with clients and potential clients, as well as using email to set appointments, communicate with clients and attract new clients.
