AUDE Summer School

Sir Robert McAlpine is proud to continue our longstanding relationship and be the main sponsor of the AUDE Summer School 2022.

We are proud to sponsor the AUDE Summer School, which will feature a keynote speech from our Director of People & Infrastructure, Karen Brookes.

When it comes to HR experience, there are few that can match Karen. With over 30 years’ experience that spans the private and public sectors, she has worked successfully across consultancy, sales and marketing, construction and retail. Never one to stand still, Karen has actively implemented major business improvement programmes, which have generated long-term sustainable value through the engagement and empowerment of employees and teams.

She is someone who thinks differently and creatively, and has let her career take her to Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia and Nigeria, where she consistently delivered for a wide range of clients. Beyond this, her life outside work is also not what you would expect. Not only does she co-own Halesowen Town Football Club, she is also the SRM Executive Leadership Team sponsor for our Socio Economic Affinity Network and works tirelessly to help the homeless in Soho, London, where she supports hot meal provision. Karen is a great believer in what companies can do to support our wider society and has a strong interest in helping ex-offenders, ex-military and the homeless reintegrate back into the community.

Karen joined Sir Robert McAlpine in 2017. As you might expect, her role is wide-ranging and includes people, property and facilities management, business systems, information compliance, security and quality. 

Karen will tell her story and showcase her cross-sector career together with insights into her unique professional role away from work. She’ll give delegates her board-level perspective on what it takes to build successful and empowered teams.
