Guest Speaker BackgroundKaren Clarke

Karen is the author of ‘From Bullied to Brilliant’ and co-founder of Powerful Positive People®. Karen has a deep understanding of bullying and social isolation, both in her capacity as professional coach and her personal experiences of witnessing and experiencing bullying. Dr Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, wrote the foreword for ‘From Bullied to Brilliant’ with contributions from internationally recognised sportspeople and celebrities such as Ed Frances, Matthew Mitcham, Michael Schwandt, and Tanja Mitton. Karen has also partnered with the Brisbane Broncos, Pemsoft, and BullyZero, among others, to help move her message into more of a culture.


TOPIC: From Bullied to Brilliant

Karen’s presentations are based on her investigation into the bully-victim dynamic.  She understands the patterns that emerge when dominance based relationships are at play and is able to clearly demonstrate what occurs when two people agree to participate in a bully-victim dynamic.
