About Karel

A Little Bit About Karel . . .

My name is Karel Murray, a motivational humorist, business strategy consultant and author who presents nationally and internationally with an average of 80 engagements per year. There are five outcomes you can expect as a result of working with me:


Karel Murray
  1. I bring a “nothing but the truth” humorous and insightful approach to presentations which are solidly based on business strategy and practical life applications.

  2. My extensive professional biography gives me experience in human resources, management and communication and it’s this background that creates the essential foundation for the programs I’ve delivered to over 75,000 audience members since 2000.

  3. It’s essential that what I deliver is right for you and your audience. Before any program booking or consulting session is finalized, we will have a conversation to determine the outcomes you desire and whether I’m the best resource to do that. This process of interactive questioning ensures the experience we have together is fulfilling and positively memorable.

  4. As a Certified Speaking Professional (NSA) and a Distinguished Real Estate Instructor (REEA) and past national President of the Real Estate Educators Association, I keep on top of new techniques and technologies to enhance the presentation experience.

  5. Relevant content is something I continue to develop through books, newsletters, mastery groups and podcasts which can be reviewed in the Resources section
