Over the past year, Karen continues to develop and master her own skills and is on track to be a Board designated Master Trainer of NLP by November 2017. Currently only two have reached this prestigious designation in Canada. Karen has taken on a leadership role as a Master Trainer Candidate and spends 18 days every summer without financial compensation based on her commitment to the development of new trainers that meet or exceed the board standards. She then provides leadership throughout the year as the new trainers enter the Master Trainer Candidate Program.  “We are absolutely thrilled that Karen has been recognized outside the organization for her commitment to entrepreneurs,” said Jeff Kessler, partner ChooseRESULTS.
