Karen Shaffer – Business Development Manager
Karen joined Unlocking Potential in 2021 and brings with her a wealth of skills and knowledge that she can’t wait to share! Karen has over 12 years’ experience in buying and brand management within fast paced retail settings. For the last 4 years, Karen was a franchise owner specialising in developmental toddler classes. She loved all aspects of running her own business but especially getting to meet and spend time with lots of families in the local area!
What inspires you?
I enjoy learning through life experiences such as meeting new people, getting to hear what they love and what motivates them, whether it’s: travel, home life, careers, creating something or going after their dreams – it’s inspiring to me!
I also love taking the time to remind myself how much fun and discovery is around every corner by seeing the world through the eyes of my 5 and 7 year old.
How do you switch off and relax?
When I’m not working, I love to spend time with my family and friends exploring the best Cornwall has to offer! Over the last year I have found a new love for the outdoors and enjoy mountain biking and exploring the Cornish coast from the sea on my paddle board!
What is your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure would have to be hot buttered toast and marmalade! I love toast and have marmalade rather than jam as I know the girls don’t like it so I won’t have to share any!
