Known as the ‘First Lady of Football’ Karren firmly established herself in what was a male dominated society and achieved extraordinary success when floating Birmingham City FC in 1997, becoming the youngest Managing Director of a plc in the UK. She has recovered from a cerebral aneurysm, published 4 books, and is now Lord Sugar’s aid on The Apprentice and Vice-Chairman of West Ham United FC. Where does she fit into TED? Well, she does a huge amount of work championing women in the workplace and I think this is where Karren would add some serious value on stage.
