I am most impressed with Karen’s ability to nail my promotional message. Karen neatly encapsulated all that needed to be said about my business succinctly and effectively. I would highly recommend Karen for that PR touch that’s so hard to create – she does it in a heartbeat!”

If you want a communications expert who can size up your organisational needs in the blink of an eye, and propose solutions that you hadn’t even thought of, but are a practical and perfect fit – then Karen Warner is the person you need. She is experienced in getting the message out through a variety of media, and understands the need to maintain your voice whatever the method used. However, I think what I appreciate most about working with Karen is that she truly cares about what she does, and will go out of her way to help”.

“I had a great time working with Karen of Press the Point. As a new business owner I appreciated the value of getting my website up and running. Like many of us I’d developed the content myself. After attending a few Lighthouse and Canberra Business Chamber events I began to appreciate that although my content was OK, it wasn’t capturing the points I was trying to make. Having Karen’s expert eye to run over the website, she was able to evaluate the weaknesses in both structure and word value and develop a rework of content that I was able to upload immediately. It reads much better than the original and much more to the Point and well worth the investment in my business. Thanks very much Karen, it has been a pleasure working with you”.
Leanne Wakeling, owner Coordanised De-clutter, Downsize, De-stress
“Karen presents at a perfect pace, with perfect, concise information – insightful and great anecdotes in a personable, friendly manner. A great seminar!”
Annette Hurda, Director, AAH Productions
“Useful insight into how to present the ideas we already have in ways that will engage people outside our office, both clients and non-clients. Well done Karen!”

“Karen’s advice on media and communications through her Media and Communications workshop has helped me to step up my marketing campaign. Her words of wisdom have given me some great food for thought”.
Deborah Evans, Director TJILLARI Justice Consultants
“There are so many things to think about, do and spend money on starting up a business from scratch and a website, while needed, is a luxury item many small businesses cannot afford. I wrote my website in a hurry and often late at night, once the kids had gone to bed! The website text was passable, however it really needed a re-vamp. Karen’s assistance was invaluable. Karen helped to draw out the most important information and put it front and centre. Karen not only re-wrote the website for me, she also gave me handy hints and tips about how to structure the information, how I could improve pages such as ‘news’ and ‘testimonials’ and what type of information I might like to include in the future. As well as re-writing the text, Karen prepared a comprehensive report about the website and stepped me through it all, so I felt confident making larger changes. Since the re-write of the website I have had more queries for enrolments, a direct result from Karen’s work. Karen has an ability to look at a website and know almost immediately what improvements need to be made. I am grateful for her prompt, courteous and reliable help and highly recommend her to any business needing help with their website or any communications”.
Justine Lennane, Director, Gumnut Dance – creative and fun dance for kids
“I have worked with Karen for over a year in my capacity as the Deputy CEO for a national not-for-profit in the health sector and also more recently in establishing my own business. Karen has a strong journalism background, great relationships and knows how to manage the media. She gets across issues exceptionally quickly and is very practical and responsive in her advice as to how to manage these. I have appreciated her creative, agile, pragmatic and downright honest approach and look forward to working with her into the future”.
Vanessa Vanderhoek, Founding Director Career Inside Track
“The guidance and knowledge you have generously passed on to ML comms people is highly valued and will not be forgotten…As a group, we’ve been so fortunate to have an individual of your calibre and experience leading us through the back room quagmires, all the while keeping us focussed on telling our tremendous stories of community care”.
Kellee Pisanos Communications Manager, Southern NSW Medicare Local
“I have worked with Karen Warner as a journalist since 2010 and have consistently found her knowledgeable, clear and prompt. Karen has been a media and communications adviser during a period of great change and uncertainty for her organisation yet consistently provided detailed information and quick access to senior executives without fuss or editorial interference. On several occasions when important events unfolded whilst our publication was going to print, Karen clearly went out of her way to ensure I had the most accurate and up-to-date information. I would not hesitate to recommend Karen to any comparable organisation in the government, corporate, not-for-profit and healthcare spaces”.
