Karen James

On Purpose

Fast-talking, funny and pulling no punches, Karen James is a Jersey girl turned social entrepreneur who has risen through the ranks of the global corporate world while honouring her most important role in life as a proud single mother and humanitarian. From building with her team a 10,000-strong community of women within a leading bank, to integrating not-for-profit leadership lessons into corporate boardrooms and growing a company from a turnover of $9 million to a turnover of $100 million, Karen is a fixer and a doer who matches head with heart—and makes it everyone’s business to do the same.
