Dr. KAREN MOLONEY
Director, Moloney Minds
Dr Karen Moloney is a Chartered Psychologist, consultant, writer and speaker, and a Director of Moloney
In 1986, conscious of the growing interest from HR in measuring competence at work, she founded Moloney and Gealy with Norman Gealy. Moloney & Gealy grew through several recessions to a staff of 10 and 45 associates and turned over £1m. Clients of Moloney & Gealy included many household names from the retail, manufacturing, financial services and legal sectors, including the British Government, the NHS, GlaxoSmithKline, Volvo, Philips, Centrica.
In July 2003, Moloney & Gealy closed and the partners each set up their own practices allowing them to concentrate on their individual interests.
Karen's work over the past couple of years has included advising companies on attracting and retaining its top talent, the building of emotional capital within organisations, the development of competency frameworks as a culture change tool, and the creation of career and personal development opportunities to retain individuals.
She has set up Moloney Minds in order to concentrate on thinking, writing, speaking and working with a smaller group of select clients worldwide.
