“It is not often that I get any direct feedback from our members on the speakers, but I had several members come to me directly and tell me how much they enjoyed your presentation.

It was a great experience and provided real value to our team.”
“The Southern Wisconsin Baptist Association had two women's conferences one in 2013 and the other in 2014. I met Karrie while leading a workshop, years before, for Building Powerful Ministry Teams. I knew then she was an affluent speaker. I was planning the women's conferences and knew I needed to have a dynamic speaker, so I asked Karrie She did an amazing job and the ladies enjoyed her encouragement and knowledge, so I asked her back a second year. She is a very dynamic speaker and is knowledgeable on the subjects she leads. I would recommend her to anyone needing a top notch speaker!”
