Karen Foreman-Brown

Director, Strategist, Content Creator


Karen is the founder and director of The Freshest, drawing on her 35+ years of experience in communications, marketing, facilitation and digital media to deliver focused strategies and implementation for her clients.

She distills her experiences as a small business owner and an employee into new thinking for New Zealand based businesses and organisations who need to tap into the creativity and expertise of their teams now more than ever before.


Over the years Karen has initiated a number of online and offline communities and enjoys the challenge of connecting people with each other through this channel.

She currently admins a Facebook community of nearly 30,000 members which has grown rapidly over the last two years, and is actively involved in a number of other online groups. 

Innovative thinking

Her strengths include high level thinking; developing effective strategies alongside clients that tap into their specific requirements while also applying her knowledge of digital tools and platforms, and best practice communications to help deliver exciting outcomes.

Karen has a particular interest in New Zealand’s primary sector and the opportunities it presents, along with community based and not for profit organisations and welcomes any potential clients within these sectors who would like to get in touch.
