I live in Edinburgh with my partner – a long way from my home town of Liverpool, but fate brought me to Scotland and that’s where I have stayed for the last 25+ years. In my spare time, I enjoy running, cycling, walking and exploring Scotland’s natural treasures. I adore the world’s creatures but if pushed, I’d have to say cats hold a special place in my heart. I also love to cook and am at my happiest in the kitchen creating yummy vegetarian dishes.
Before setting up KarenMooreBiz Consulting, I worked with Scottish Waterways Trust as its Chief Executive from 2012-2018. Prior to that I was the Scottish Director for The Waterways Trust 2002-2011. I have 30 years experience in the non-profit sector and non-profit organisations.
I established my own business in 2018 offering strategic consultancy services including Interim Executive contracts, Strategic Planning, Organisational Reviews including Governance, Vision and Culture change, Income Diversification Planning and Fundraising and Executive Coaching & Mentoring. I qualified as an accredited Executive Coach and Mentor in 2016 through the Edinburgh Coaching Academy. I completed my training with the Thinking Project as a Time to Think Facilitator.
I was until recently a Non- Executive Director on the Blackwood Board and a member of the Audit and Performance Committee and I am currently Chair of Cumbernauld Theatre Trust.
As a former CEO, my role was to lead the charity; create the strategy for income generation, enterprise and sustainability; lead and inspire the team; create a culture of passion, creativity, energy and productivity; develop strategic partnerships and new project development.
