Like most people, branding and business expert Karee Laing has been exposed to many forms of marketing and leadership. It was her very experience at a past job that prompted her to start Studio Brand Collective. Whether it's a mix of bold moves, great opportunities or just plain ol' luck, Karee understands that just like no two businesses are ever the same, no two approach to business should ever be the same.
With over a decade of strategy development, executive speaking, mentoring and most importantly, real-life, in-the-trenches business experience, her view is radically different. Karee appreciates, and shares with listeners, that leadership is a moment-to-moment choice and not about title, tenure or position. Leadership is for everyone, everyday. It's how we should live our life - it's the very philosophy she lives by the motto "work hard in silence so success can be your noise". There is no blueprint to leading and no two days are ever the same, but there are certain qualities or abilities that allows leaders to rise.
