Through keynote speeches, booksebooks, and in-person and online courses, workshops and one-on-one coaching, Karen Walrond and Chookooloonks Media are all about leadership, self-determination and the concept of thriving.  Ultimately, what you will find here is a testament to beauty, positivity, creativity and kindness.  It's a body of irrefutable evidence that there is good in the world.  And a collection of tools to help you connect with gratitude, strength and joy in your own work and life.

Everything you'll see on Chookooloonks is about living with intention and a sense of adventure.  It's photography and travel and food and art and life.  It's about the connection and creativity and determination and resonance that we all experience, if only we look for the light.

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour and some style."
