About Louise Karch

Louise Karch, BA, M.Ed., CMP,  is a consultant and speaker who provides branding and marketing advice to professionals for business growth.

Whereas other consultants often deliver little more than “schlock and awe”, Louise, a cross between a Harvard prof and Bette Midler in sensible shoes — a little bit Ivy League and a little bit fun — ensures your brand breaks out instead of blending in.

Louise advises accountants, architects, consultants, dentists, lawyers, vets and even winemakers. She lives in Canada and Australia and recently helped CEO Matt Fowles win an Australian Marketing Institute Award for his wine ‘Ladies who Shoot their Lunch.’ She also won The Pillar Community Award for Innovation for co-creating The Fairy Godmother Project in Canada.
