Here’s some of the feedback…

“Your energy and expertise inspired others. Very positive feedback…great presenter who really engaged people”
– Jackie Barron, Woodford House School Principal, Girls Pathways Symposium, 2013

“The New Zealand Women’s Conference, held yesterday in Wellington, is a day designed for Kiwi women to meet professional speakers specialising in business, psychology, sport, lifestyle and design. One of the most popular speakers over the past two years it has been held has been clinical psychologist Karen Nimmo. Her seminar, titled “Love yourself (In case your friends turn out to be bitches)”, was a guide to building the mental toughness required to conquer low self-esteem, Stewart said.”
 – Sunday Star Times, May 2012

“Some really simple but hugely important take away points.”
 – NZ Rugby Union Staff Development Day 2013

“I enjoyed the presentation. Karen was funny and engaging. I thought it would be about…how to eat better, exercise, stop smoking etc but we already know this stuff (and don’t do it!) so it was nice to have a different approach.”
