Karen Tippett

Karen has over 20 years experience in PR spanning agencies both in the UK and in Paris.  Beginning as a graduate at an agency in Paris on a journey that took her to the position of Head Of PR at Virgin Holidays, she opened her own consultancy business in 2010.

She currently consults for Tourism Toronto, The Club Barbados Resort & Spa, Palm Island Grenadines, Saga and celebrity hairstylist Errol Douglas MBE.  Of all the experience and advice acquired over her career, Karen has found the most timeless and fruitful to be this:  Listen, then listen some more.
