Karen Hollenbach


I’m Karen Hollenbach, Think Bespoke’s Founder and my specialty is working with leaders of businesses who are subject matter experts, want to take their business or career to the next level but find getting their thoughts organised into an implementable game plan and managing people a daily challenge.

I believe in working with people’s strengths, understanding their values and developing a realistic and meaningful plan to navigate a life with purpose.

I enjoy coaching others to live the life they imagined and help my clients re-think their approach to their business and career, by tapping into who they are and how they can be more effective in their professional lives.





If you believe in the power of building relationships, sharing your story, better understanding what is unique about you and the people around you (and learning how to leverage this more effectively) then we’d love to learn more about you and discuss how we can help.

Through Karen’s work and life experience, she has developed deep insight into the human condition. Clients describe her as possessing high emotional intelligence. With a unique ability to ‘temperature check’ a situation Karen can effectively decode what people really mean by their words, actions and body language.

She listens well and asks great questions, drawing on her extensive experience at Think Bespoke, coaching and training professionals who manage and lead people, and in previous roles in the corporate world, leading and managing teams in sales and marketing roles. Before establishing Think Bespoke in 2010, Karen worked in senior roles for Diageo Australia, a global premium drinks company, where she worked as a People Manager, Strategic Planner, Trade Marketing Manager and B2B Account Manager.

She understands what it takes to lead teams and influence people.

Karen can also share many insights with you about how to leverage LinkedIn for your business and career.


Most of Karen’s regular business coaching clients first experienced Karen’s tailored and interactive coaching and training approach through one of Think Bespoke’s business or career services. These one off sessions are a great way to understand how Karen can help you and if her approach (which she tailors to the individuals she works with), is right for you. If you simply need a little clarity on how to navigate LinkedIn for your business or career, or would like to navigate a better approach to how you position your brand online or lead and manage your team, these face to face consultations are a great first step to engage our services.

Karen’s expert knowledge of how to leverage LinkedIn has benefited my business greatly. I’ve attended presentations she has delivered and used her services to update my presence on LinkedIn. I highly recommend her and the team at Think Bespoke.

We attended a Linkedin workshop held by Karen. It was obvious from the beginning that Karen’s insight would add significant value to our company situation. We weren’t wrong at all! Karen has a great understanding of professional networking and marketing using various social media platforms (obviously specialising in Linkedin). It was refreshing to hear her thoughts and use of actual case studies as inspiration for our own business requirements and goals. I would recommend Karen in a heart beat… she is the real deal!

Thank you to Karen’s expert advice in the Think Bespoke group coaching sessions which I attend, I was able to pass on my learnings and new found knowledge to consultants within our company.

Thank you Karen for the gems and pearls you share this is certainly making an impact in my business and that of my consultants.
