Strategic advisor

Moving forward requires a game plan with smart moves and generating a wide range of support amongst staff, stakeholders and shareholders.   Boards and management teams call on Karen to provide and facilitate clear advice on moving forward.  Karen has particular expertise at the Crown-Māori; interface and helping orgnaisational governors generate direction, capability and momentum.  


Effective, independent facilitation helps get people listening and talking in focused ways. Keeping the conversation inclusive, on track and moving forward ensures that outcomes are achieved. I provide interactive processes for:

  • Stakeholder conversations with groups such as sector leaders, iwi partners, customers, supplier, staff, management teams, funding partners
  • Strategic planning and review
  • Giving and receiving challenging feedback
  • Building trust
  • Getting past conflict to cooperation and learning.


I work closely with leaders who are committed to developing themselves to be better and do better. Coaching is a potent catalyst to achieve self management strategies, develop qualities of character or attain stretchy self-set goals. This is a provocative support relationship that empowers you to get more of what you want.
