What Fans Say

“I have known and worked with Karen for over 25 years in two different companies and industries.  She excels at creating the climate for business leaders to communicate their unique vision, point of view or strategy to important constituents, whether at the board-level or at the farthest reach of the company’s global operations. Her people and project management skills yield meetings that are memorable and, importantly, aligned with the strategy of the business. She is trustworthy, gets results and communicates well in a team setting. If you become a client, the return on your meeting investment is about to accelerate.”

“When our marketing team was tasked with putting on a national pediatric genomic medicine conference,  we knew we needed help.  Our core competency is marketing, not meeting planning. So we called on the pros - Karen Lazowski and Clear Path Events.  They did what they do best so we could focus on what we do best.  It was a huge relief - and a huge success - to have Karen and her team take care of the conference management from start to finish.  Truly a win-win for everyone!”

Laurie Ellison

Chief Marketing Officer

“As CEO of a publicly traded company, it didn't take me long to learn that the difference between an A+ business meeting and a just an "OK" meeting has a significant impact on desired results and important relationships.  I was so fortunate and grateful to have Karen Lazowski on our team to deliver A+ results time and time again.  It didn't matter whether it was a board meeting for 12 people or a franchise convention for 1200, Karen's unique ability to think strategically, ask the right questions up front, her impressive attention to detail, and the manner in which she led execution always exceeded expectations.  And, at the same time, her humility and servant leadership are unparalleled.  In the restaurant business, franchisees expect and hold the franchisor to an extremely high standard and ours were no exception.  Having Karen as the "glue" for all of our events was the key to consistently exceeding expectations and building strong relationships with our franchisees, restaurant managers and company officers. I highly recommend Clear Path Events to you, knowing the talent and passion for excellence that Karen provides.”

“Karen is a top-notch experienced pro who’s extra special gifts include a fun, high-energy, collaborative personality; an endless creativity & possibilities mindset (even when the budget is tight); and an authentic flexibility/resiliency that is essential (yet rare) in this business. I can’t recommend her highly enough!”
