Karen See


Co-founder, {embrace} worldwide

“I worked for a global advertising agency as its Chief Communications Officer for many years and used to catch the minibus from Causeway Bay nearly every day. I now run a leadership management consultancy coaching and supporting individuals and organisations to be performing at their best. If I had to describe Causeway Bay in five words, I would use: Exhilarating. Frenetic. Crowded. Enticing. Consumption. These are all attributes I would also use to describe Hong Kong. The fourth city I have lived in, Hong Kong has captured my heart and soul which I am now thankful to call home.”
