Today on the Take on Board podcast I’m speaking with Karen Foster about boardroom power plays.

Karen is on the boards of Western Victoria Primary Health Network Chair of the Let’s Talk Foundation and Mayor of Moyne Shire Council.

She’s a former Chair of Leadership Great South Coast (Chair) Moyne Health Services and a former board member of Brophy Family and Youth Services, Corangamite Regional Library Corporation, Regional Leadership Australia and GAICD Regional Advisory Group, Great South Coast.

A former Journalist, Karen went to the ‘dark side’ of PR and marketing in the late 2000s. She established a communications consultancy, o2 Media, in 2007. Karen also works with NFP Boards in strategic and business planning. And during Covid, she retrained as a life coach and has combined these skill sets to offer leadership coaching for women.

Karen is a mum to two inspiring young adult children and live in coastal Port Fairy with her lawyer husband, Gary, two dogs and a handful of chooks!
