Karen Cherrett - Chair, Innovation Advisory Council for Wales

Karen has enjoyed an eclectic career spanning operational policing, facilities management and strategic partnership programme delivery. As a senior consultant for a global innovation and technology firm she worked with governments across the UK developing economic growth plans and delivering strategic change programmes.

Karen now follows her own passions: she is a trustee of two Welsh charities (delivering independence for the elderly and people living with disabilities), runs her own advisory and change businesses and is co-chair of IACW.
