Karen Wright is a HR professional. After a grounding in HR in some large FTSE companies, she has spent the last 20 years as an interim manager. Dealing with HR projects, M&A, crisis management, or just covering HR gaps in organisations, she has worked for big and small companies in the public, private and third sector and covered many, varied and different industries.
Outside work, Karen lives with her husband and son (and until a recent fox incident, a few chickens), in Wiltshire. She enjoys cooking, and eating! Long walks with pub lunches, foreign travel and reading are also passions of hers.
