Karen Waite

Founder and CEO, Leap Like a Salmon

"Silicon Yorkshire is such a great initiative, and I am excited to be involved as an Ambassador in developing this unique platform. As the founder of a tech start up and a background in learning and development my skills and experience support this role as well as the lessons and knowledge gained in developing a digital platform."

Currently I have a role with my professional body ‘Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development’ (CIPD) where I have responsibility for the North and International regions and manage the quality of qualifications, leadership, standards, skills, online learning, and digital development with my team. I am keen to add value and perspective to this initiative, whilst building unparalleled connectivity across sectors, industries, functions and social boundaries.
