In Episode 4 of this new podcast series, BrandHook MD, Pip Stocks, talks with Karen Lawson about what’s missing amid all the technology and data helping organisations improve their customer experience approach, and how to balance knowledge with trust, authenticity and a human touch.

As the CEO of Slingshot, Australia’s leading corporate accelerator program, Karen is using her proven experience in driving reinvention and transformation to help the world’s biggest brands stay ahead of disruption.

Prior to her role at Slingshot, Karen served as CEO of CareerOne, a joint venture between News Limited and Monster Worldwide. With a remit to forge a new digital strategy, Karen restructured the business from a traditional job board into a leading targeting and digital business offering media, employer branding, SaaS and sourcing solutions. She also served as General Manager – Business at Yahoo!7 where she held full commercial and operational responsibility for data, advertising, publishing, technology, search, mobile and strategic partnerships, including the Microsoft Bing alliance.

Karen’s commitment to driving innovation and disruption but also to promoting female leadership resulted in being selected as UN ambassador for Womens Entrepreneurship Day, a Nominee for Telstra Woman of the year, selected Pledge 1%’s Women Who Lead, and the Australian Growth Company Awards 2015.
