Karen Tibbals is a ninja-level market researcher and strategist with stints at Ogilvy, Ipsos, Novartis and Merck. At Ogilvy, she worked on FMCG (Maxwell House Coffee, Alpha-Bits, Cocoa Pebbles) and B&B products (AT&T, International Paper, Owens Corning). Since starting in pharmaceuticals, she has been responsible for many product launches.
She took a detour for a degree in Religion from Earlham School of Religion and multiple courses in ethics and teaching ethics. She was so excited about what she learned that it totally changed how she thought about marketing! To capture these thoughts, she written a book about how these theories apply to marketing and marketing research.
She has used those theories in developing the Ethical Frames model and its applications to marketing. To help marketers understand and be able to apply the theory to their everyday business needs, she has written the book Marketing Landmines: The Next Generation of Emotional Branding. To take it even further, she has developed the Ethical Frames Training Program and Workshops targeted at marketers.
She makes her home in the corn fields of New Jersey with her college sweetheart but is available to travel to help your marketing become more conversant with Ethical Frames.
