Karen Hyde

Karen supports red10 projects and business operations. She is a communication specialist and a Chartered PR Practitioner.

Karen’s career spans many years working within global teams at some of the world’s leading pharmaceutical, financial services and FMCG organisations. In her early career she worked as PA to senior leaders and since qualifying in 2009, has enjoyed a variety of Communication Manager roles where she implemented internal communication strategies for organisational change, technology migration and employee engagement campaigns.

She has particular experience in leading and conducting in-depth research interviews for team effectiveness workshops, developing questionnaires, undertaking the analysis and providing insightful reports.

Having travelled worldwide for business and as an ex-pat family in Middle East and West Indies, Karen brings an international perspective and a cultural sensitivity which shines through in her interactions with others, building connections and collaborating with people of different backgrounds and circumstances.

Nothing seems to throw Karen, she is resourceful, super-organised, and tech-savvy, relishing the challenge of a complex project and making things happen. She is curious and excited about new digital technologies; especially how virtual teams can harness that power to work better and smarter together across international and functional boundaries.

A whizz with copywriting and content, Karen is never happier than when she’s asked to create impactful and engaging presentations.

Karen is based in Cheshire, UK and still loves to travel. As a qualified RYA skipper, she never passes up an opportunity be on or near the water, even if it’s just paddle-boarding. Along with her husband, she’s mad about their classic cars, particularly the Great British TVR from Blackpool.

She claims to be a reasonable cook and tells us she can usually knock up something appetising and edible from anything that may be in the cupboard. Alongside that, her two grandsons keep her more than busy as do her two Siberian Husky dogs
