“Karen led a detailed review of one of our critical HR processes, and the subsequent implementation of her recommendations. She worked brilliantly across the stakeholders, carefully breaking down unnecessary barriers, resulting in a marked improvement in our delivery to the business.”

Izabel Carter
ex Human Resources Director

“Tenacious, driven, on the pulse and highly experienced with a broad knowledge base and a hunger to consistently drive and develop new ideas, positively impacting those around her and any business that she is involved in. Karen is a quick thinker and can handle a multitude of challenges with what appears to be real ease. She is a natural listener, understands situations from all angles, highly professional, straight-talking and will tell it as it is to further the cause and/or to move limiting blocks and obstacles. Karen is very loyal, with a deeply caring nature for all those she works with. I had immense fun working with Karen in what was a fast-paced, very challenging/demanding business. She really is one of a kind and I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen to anyone.”
