I have been mentored by Karen O’Grady for 1 year and don’t know what I would have done without her. Her extensive knowledge and experience is what makes her a perfect mentor but along with her helpful, caring and patient disposition the support and confidence I get from having her for my mentor is priceless to me and I have achieved and learnt so much thanks to Karen.

Karen is always available and willing to help, she goes beyond the call of duty in that through Karen’s mentoring as well as knowledge and support the enthusiasm and encouragement I have received from Karen is what has had a tremendous impact on my achievements. I would recommend Karen to anyone as a mentor as you simply won’t get a better knowledge, support and friendship anywhere else.

This is to introduce Karen O’Grady, whom I have known since August 2006 when she taught at Central TAFE and I was a student in her class.

Karen has been providing training and coaching since 1996 and that she has a considerable number of licensed brokers under her. She is very professional and well-equipped with current product knowledge. Karen is always available to help her brokers when needed and willingly develop others. I am positive that she is progressing as a local professional and/or business owner.  I believe that Karen always acts professionally and in the best interest of his clients and/or brokers, and that she would comply with the requirements of her business legislation.  

Karen has been undertaking various professional development courses to maintain her caliber.  She is a member of several professional bodies such as, MFAA and COSL. Karen also holds a bachelor degree from The University of Western Australia.

I believe that Karen is a fit and proper person to be a-calibre trainer/mentor for Finance Broker Licence holders.  She understands and will adhere to his duties, obligations and responsibilities imposed by the Act.  I am fully confident that with the calibre that Karen represents, she would be a very valuable asset in the industry. I wish her all the very best.

I have known Karen for 5 years . We met at Tafe during Cert 4 and I found her to be very open, honest and nothing was too much trouble. I have always found her to be extremely helpful and always keeps up with legislative requirements together with banking and lending criteria. I would not hesitate to recommend Karens ervices to anyone in the brokering industry whether they are new or experienced.
