Karen is a not for profit and charity specialist who is absolutely passionate about unlocking the potential of charity finance and charity finance people to make a real difference. She has worked in the charity sector for over 16 years, both as a finance director and chief operating officer, and as a partner in some of the leading charity-specialist accounting and advisory teams. She has been lucky enough to work with a huge range of organisations, from household name charities to small local organisations, membership bodies, educational charities, grant giving foundations, international development charities and social enterprises. This has given her a unique insight into the issues not for profit boards and senior managers face today as well as hands on experience of delivering on strategy, transforming finance teams and creating change.
