ABOUT KAREN HOLLENBACH
I’m a corporate escapee and company director who’s learnt most of my lessons from the school of life. My formal qualifications include a Graduate Diploma Education, Bachelor of Business Marketing and a Diploma of Management.
A passionate advocate for living a simpler and more meaningful life in the digital age, I enjoy the therapy of writing as a ritual to help navigate my roles as an educator, mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin and entrepreneur.
As an individual with ambivert tendencies you’ll find me pottering in my garden, or reading a book, writing, spending time with my family or walking in nature with a kindred spirit.
You can read my musings and follow me on LinkedIn. I also write regularly on Think Bespoke’s blog and am the host of The 5 Minute LinkedIn Marketer podcast and the co-host of The Inner Curious podcast.
For many years I’ve mentored professionals who run businesses, manage or lead teams and deal with demanding stakeholders. I help my clients get more comfortable and confident with the inherent discomfort that comes with leading from the heart.
I share insights based on rituals I’ve developed to effectively manage my own ambivert tendencies, and draw on my extensive experience in business leadership, strategic marketing, stakeholder management and navigating life in the digital age.

Living the professional life you imagined takes hard work and perseverance.
Conversations with Karen will help you unlock your potential.
