The GPS Girl Gives All of Us Direction
Karen Jacobsen speaks to groups who want to inspire the best in their people, and create a road map for their future.
An Aussie, who ten years ago moved to New York to seek her fame and fortune, Karen had an unexpected left turn in her music career. She was hired for a 50 hour voice over job. The result was a voice system called “Australian Karen”, now in over 25 million GPS units all over the world giving drivers directions.
She has appeared on ABC World News Tonight, the CBS Early Show, interviewed for The New York Times, The New York Daily News and in the year end issue was named one of People Magazine’s Most Intriguing People of 2010. How did The GPS Girl navigate her way from the Great Barrier Reef to the Big Apple? Recalculating her route along the way to reach her destination.
In her talks Karen, who is billed as “The GPS Girl,” presents her serious training for life in a fun and accessible way. She expands on how to Put Yourself In the Driver’s Seat, using road rules and directions as an analogy for business and life. Her book The GPS Girl’s Road Map for Your Future shows how to move from the passenger seat to the driver’s seat, to learn to listen to your Inner GPS, and to recalculate at any time in life, just as we do when driving.
How did The GPS Girl navigate her way from the Great Barrier Reef to the NYC? Of course – she set up her map and then recalculated her route along the way to reach her destination! Her story and the principles she derives from it can have a profound impact on your audience.
