Why I started Lofti - From Founder Karianne MICHELLE

After a 15-year career in the creative branding industry, exiting as Vice President of Digital at Weber Shandwick, my professional trajectory changed. I made the leap to chart my own path. Knowing that my passion, skills and experience leading the global branding and marketing strategy for some of the world’s biggest brands, including State Farm, GE and Hewlett-Packard could be applied to more meaningful challenges, I launched Lofti in 2017.

In our first 2.5 years, we’ve coached over a thousand leaders and entrepreneurs through private consulting and original branding and wellness workshops. Led by wellness-centric values, Lofti refines and leverages each client’s story to get them to their next level of greatness, in either their career or business, without losing their sense of self and purpose in the process.


From health-focused entrepreneurs, consultants, female-founders and performing artists to dental practices and event management companies, Lofti has privately coached over 500 leaders, while also facilitating branding and wellness workshops in London, Africa and throughout the U.S. Blending industry experience with meditation and grounding techniques, our clients walk away with an authentic, powerful brand story, an easy-to-implement, practical guide on ways to leverage their story to elevate their business and brand, and wellness habits and practices to incorporate into their daily routine, as they work towards meeting their greater career and business goals.

The Lofti Brand Values

Just the like amazing brands we help build and grow, we take our brand values pretty seriously.
After all, they are the heart of our vision, human approach and what makes us uniquely us.
