SleepingGiant Consulting | Proven Business Coach for the Interior Design Industry

Metier Affiliate Spotlight | Introducing SleepingGiant Consulting and the ultra-efficient Karen Fugle, business coach to Interior Designers and Architects.


How I met Karen…

Karen Fugle of SleepingGiant Consultancy and I met over a decade ago when she and I were both fortunate enough to work with the internationally renowned architectural firm KPF in London. Karen was the CAD Manager, whipping a company of  350+ architects into following correct CAD standards and I was newly appointed Project Administrator for the Abu Dhabi Airport project.


We hit it off as we are both very much straight-talking females in demanding positions and could identify with the ongoing attempt to “herd kittens” into following company policies and procedures.


Fast forward to 2019

… and we are both in very different positions, having grown into our ideal roles.  I am now an Interior Designer and Karen as a successful Executive Coach / owner of SleepingGiant Consultancy.
