‘Visionary Art for Visionary People’

Wednesday 14th September 2005

Karin Hochapfel is delighted to be invited to attend the Personal Branding Workshop arranged by the BT Women’s Network and the BT Women’s Executive Network, which is being hosted by the Tate Modern on Wednesday 14th September from 11:30 until 16:45hrs.

Karin developed her highly intuitive process of coaching using her sketches in 2000 and from this period has created approximately 200 works of art for her clients as a “byproduct” of this coaching process. She is an internationally recognised artist, having studied under Professor Peter Dreher at the State Academy of Visual Arts in Karlsruhe, Germany. Karin then established a studio in Palermo following her winning the prestigious German State Art Sponsorship.

This psychic coaching process begins with a one to one interview with the client, where they discuss their life, their goals, aspirations and fears with Karin. These thoughts are harnessed by the artist to create a personalized vision about the client in the artist’s mind during this dialogue with the sitter. A unique combination of intuitive visionary images formulate in Karin’s mind that is solely relevant to that one person. It is this crystallised image that she then transfers to canvas using oil and watercolour as her favoured media. Her clients range from captains of industry to Reiki masters and they often use their paintings as talismans in order to retain their focus on their goals.

Karin Hochapfel, commenting on attending this event, said: ‘It is a great honour to be invited to show my highly innovative art concept at such a prestigious event, particularly at the Tate Modern. I derive enormous satisfaction from coaching clients and creating between us visionary works that assist them to fulfil their potential both privately and at the office.’

BT Women's Network (BTWN)
BTWN encourages self-development through sharing experience, information and advice, and communicates ideas to management.
BTWN was started in 1986 by a small group of BT women who attended the Cranfield School of Management Programme in the UK.
At the time, the group felt a BT internal network dedicated to women would bring significant added benefits. The BTWN was created with the aim of increasing women's sense of involvement within BT and encouraging them to develop career potential to the benefit of the individual and BT.
The network has nearly 5000 members and many non-members regularly attend BTWN meetings and events. It is run by volunteers, funded and fully backed by BT.
Members are kept informed through the newsletter, 'hersay', and the BTWN website.
BT Women's Executive Network
The BT Women's Executive Network was set up in 2003 to increase the proportion of women in senior level management. The network's aims are to:
• Support members to achieve their maximum potential
• Drive change within BT on executive gender diversity issues
• Challenge BT to provide more executive opportunities for women.
The Action Plan includes:
• Tackling the barriers to women's career progression
• Increasing the visibility of role models and mentors to support and encourage women to progress through BT
• Designing a programme of events with internal and external speakers to promote the Executive Network
• Providing networking and support.
Activities during the 2005 financial year included guidance on financial awareness, boardroom skills (presented by BT Chairman, Sir Christopher Bland) and guidance on how to gain non-executive directorships
