With over 20 years’ senior HR experience, including International Change Management experience, Karen is adept at guiding businesses through periods of change.
She has held numerous senior management roles both in the UK and overseas, where she honed her commercial skills, enabling her to quickly identify and understand the challenges facing an organisation.
Previous roles have included HR Director for an International Chemical Company and a Global BPO organisation. She has operated as both a Interim HR Consultant and Executive Coach for the past six years working in both corporate and small business environments.
As a member of various senior management teams both in the UK and abroad, she has a strong commercial focus enabling her to understand the challenges being faced by organisations.
A recent client of Karen’s said after their coaching programme ‘I now have much more faith in my ability as a Manager. I feel different, my self-esteem and confidence has grown and I’m now comfortable in getting my point across in important meetings and challenging discussion points that I don’t always agree with.
A natural listener and a strong communicator, Karen rejects the ‘one size fits all’ approach to development. She prefers instead to dig deeper, challenging her clients to step out of their comfort zone to create solutions that work for the individual and the organisation.
