“Karen McCullough’s presentation, “Change is good…YOU go first,” was a wonderful addition to the 2014 Illinois Governor’s Conference on Travel and Tourism. She was very well received by Conference attendees who were impressed by both her expertise and infectious enthusiasm. Karen was able to make a strong case for being at the forefront of change and how any organization can adjust their business models to ensure that change leads to measurable results. She brought such a positive energy and humor to her presentation, that she was very much a highlight of our Conference and we are proud to recommend her for future events.” - Illinois Office of Tourism

The tourism staff person in charge of her room told me she had to bring in extra seats for her second session! Karen definitely is someone I'd like to bring back for future conferences." - Nebraska Tourism Commission
