KAREN MOORE

My clients describe me as inspiring, motivational and outcome focused. My strategic and enthusiastic approach to working with individuals and third sector organisations will help you develop the confidence, mindset and tools to get you to where you need to be.

Before setting up KarenMooreBiz Consulting, I worked with Scottish Waterways Trust as its Chief Executive from 2012-2018, where some of my greatest achievements were raising £16 million, growing the organisation’s income from £200k to £1.5m p.a. and creating the award-winning canal college®, a £1.4m outdoor skills and learning programme.

I established Karen Moore Biz back in 2018, offering strategic consultancy services including Interim Executive contracts, Executive Coaching & Mentoring, Strategic Planning and Organisational Reviews which you can learn more about in the services section.

I qualified as an accredited Executive Coach and Mentor in 2016 through the Edinburgh Coaching Academy and completed my training with the Thinking Project as a Time to Think Facilitator.

And when I’m not working

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.
