Is your organization in a time of transition?
Do you find it difficult to Navigate Change?
Are you comfortable Recalculating through any change?
Then you have Reached Your Destination. Karen Jacobsen, The GPS Girl® is as at-home in front of a conference audience as she is on center stage at a stadium. Her one-woman keynote presentation “Recalculate - Directions for Driving Performance Success" is an experience designed to support leaders in navigating change powerfully and making effective decisions.
The GPS Girl’s guidance will be of most value if:
1.It is important that you and your colleagues be able to navigate change powerfully.
2.You are ready to learn how to recalculate through any challenge.
3.You want to be entertained and inspired by "the only woman men will take directions from" while discovering how to listen to your Inner GPS.
Most memorably, you and your colleagues will listen to directions like they never have before in The GPS Girl’s Aussie accent.
The GPS Girl’s Recalculate presentation is designed to do three things:
• To give you the "5 Directions for Recalculating” process.
• To build the ability to be solution-oriented and create a solution-oriented culture.
• To increase your ability to drive results.

• A voice in over a billion GPS and smartphone devices worldwide.
• An award winning performer, singing The Star Spangled Banner at major sporting events at Madison Square Garden, Dodger Stadium and Fenway Park.
