Marbella Marbella Adelante Welcomes Karina Geldner

Since I have been coming to Spain, it never fails to surprise me how many really talented people I come across in Marbella and environs. Some retired and others leading normal working lives. One of these  fascinating people, is Karina Geldner a charming, at times rather shy lady, with an attractive personality and looks to match,  who I met  at a business event held in the beautiful Gran Melia Don Pepe Hotel Marbella, where I found her surrounded by other event and media professionals interacting and connecting that evening.

I observed her circumnavigating  around the crowded venue, chatting amiably with this one and that one with consummate ease, and was natural and oblivious to the attention and positive impact she was making on those she met. In my opinion she stood out as someone just a little special as her professional background is impressive to say the least, for someone not so old in years.
