Karla Dawes

When Karla was born her great aunt and uncle misheard her dad and thought her name was Kahlua.

She’s been energising and intoxicating people (with charm) ever since. She loves going the beach, planning new adventures and attempting new recipes in the kitchen. But most of all she loves making connections, which is why people trust KDPO with their biggest ideas and projects.

With over 10 years of PR and events industry experience, she’s worked on some of the most impressive international consumer and lifestyle brands in the world including Cadbury, Lavazza coffee and Honda.

Since starting KDPO in mid-2016 she’s led the business from strength to strength.  She also uses her powers for good, and is the proud Co-Founder of Fierce Women, an event to empower women while raising money for Cancer Council (women’s cancers) as well as providing assistance to Lighthouse Foundation and YGAP.
