Karen Clarke is the author of From Bullied to Brilliant, trainer, keynote Speaker, facilitator, and a confidence and performance coach. She helps families, individuals and organisations manage challenging relationships and develop resilience. Karen also works part-time in her local community supporting families in crisis and within the disability sector.
Karen has a deep understanding of bullying and social isolation from her insight as a professional coach, her profound personal experiences and from life as an expatriate in francophone West Africa.
As a teenager growing up in an increasingly volatile Cote D'Ivoire, Karen's experience living in an unstable and hostile environment including being robbed at gunpoint had a deep and lasting effect. Karen's book helps individuals build resilience and learn how to overcome traumatic and challenging experiences.
From Bullied to Brilliant is the result of Karen's 20-year journey of personal discovery and professional research. Karen's advice and techniques allow adults, teenagers and educators to understand how a change in thinking and perception can end the bully-victim cycle. The world is full of questions, perhaps our answers lie within.
