About the Speaker - Karen Cureton, Director, Cureton Consulting

Karen has a strong sales background with over 25 years both in retail and business.  Her corporate career peaked with a role as a Sales Director for a national housebuilder.  However, being a sales director didn't fit with being a mum so she left the corporate world in 2008 to set up her Sales and Social Media Consultancy based near East Midlands Airport.
