Dr. Karine's KeyNote

Keynote 1: Embracing multilingualism 


Using her deep knowledge of neurolinguistics, Karine’s keynote focusses on: 


  • The multilingual children conundrum: What research says about child and language development. 
  • The “how-to” for multilingual parents/teachers: How to lay the groundwork for a supportive environment in the home and at school. 
  • The human multilingual journey: Some pitfalls and success stories in our global world.

Keynote 2: Laughter and Mindfulness, the path to “ultimate well-being” 


In a global context of increased anxiety, Karine brings awareness and solutions on how to release our daily stress intake. “People who laugh together, work together”, said British comedian John Cleese. Trained in well-being techniques such as laughter exercises, meditation, and stress cleansing, Karine’s holistic approach helps reduce physical, mental and emotional stress over a short period of time (just 20 mins) for audiences aged 5 – 105 years old.
