Karen started GGC in 2010 and subsequently founded the Global Good Awards in 2015, which has now become one of the leading global sustainability awards; and the only one that is truly run sustainably.
She has since set up a sustainable events consultancy service to help other award, festival and event organisers to make fast positive change for the benefit of people and planet.
Karen is also a member of the Independent Awards Standards Council whereby she acts as an assessor for the Awards Trust Mark; an accreditation scheme to enhance trust between those entering awards schemes, and the organisations running them.
Karen lives on the south coast and in her spare time (which she has little of!) she likes to walk, cycle, kayak and also volunteers for Marine Conservation Society and a local children’s cancer charity.
