Karen Khaw

Karen has over 20 years’ strategic communications and marketing experience in Asia Pacific with a strong passion in helping companies as well as individuals realise their potential – from digitalisation, immersive technologies to sustainable marcomms solutions. She is currently Senior Consultant at Global Management Consultancy, The Tantalus Group and is also the Founder of independent marketing communications coaching and consulting company, V-Engage (Australia). In early 2020, Karen also co-founded the Asia-Pacific Association of Communication Directors’ (APACD) Sustainable Communications Programme that connects experienced and emerging communicators (including university students) to form virtual teams, collectively supporting the communication needs of local NGOs and charities. She is also a trained coach and frequently programme leads emerging talents and social inclusion initiatives in Asia Pacific.

"SENsational speaks to me because the only way to have greater recognition of the power of different abilities is to collectively educate and consistently advocate. While there is greater awareness than before, genuine inclusion means to act and live inclusively, passing on the positive impact.”
