What makes Denver Speakers Bureau different from any other speakers bureau is its people. From its CEO to its carefully selected members, Denver Speakers Bureau has an altitude all its own.
The Bureau was founded by Karen Loucks Rinedollar, who uniquely brings to the business- experience as an Agent and Speaker. In 1988, she utilized her Public Relations degree to launch her first agency- KRON Management- near Los Angeles. There, she exclusively managed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Drummer Ginger Baker (most recently regaining fame through a half time Bruno Mars mention at Super Bowl 48). She learned the ins and outs of contract negotiation, traveled around the globe with A-Listers and honed the art of taking care of her clients- both Talent and Booking Agencies.
During her 12 year period with KRON Management, she also coordinated the Ginger Baker Drum School in Malibu, Mile High Polo near Denver and founded the children’s charity Project Linus. The latter has grown from a grassroots effort to providing almost five million handmade security blankets to seriously ill and traumatized children worldwide. Her work with Project Linus landed her as a guest on Oprah and NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and has been featured by hundreds of television shows, magazines, newspapers and online articles. The January 27, 2014 issue of Women’s World Magazine most recently highlighted her continued good works and she is featured in the award winning documentary Beware of Mr. Baker.
Work with Project Linus lead Karen to writing her first book Working for Peanuts: The Project Linus Story and soon to be released The L.I.N.U.S. Effect: Five Steps to a More Purpose-Full Life. She is frequently asked to share her experiences and productivity tools with audiences large and small and loves seeing the ripple effect of spreading positivity.
One of Karen’s biggest passions is playing event matchmaker. “Finding the right fit for the Speaker and the Event is like discovering a nugget of gold,” explained Karen. “Eureka! It is a win-win for everyone- the Speaker, the Coordinator and of course, the Audience.” And that kind of exciting job satisfaction never gets old.
Denver Speakers Bureau is not simply a listing page of speakers. These are carefully selected speakers, from around the world, who bring to the table unique life stories and subject matter expertise. They are the quality of speakers who pride themselves to go above and beyond to bring their best for a successful event. Divas and Divos need not apply!
