In the final event of the Alumni Association’s Facebook Live 2017 series, we will be hosting an intimate interview with the University’s new Chancellor Karen Blackett OBE. 

Since graduating from the University of Portsmouth in 1992, with a degree in Geography, Karen’s impressive career has grown from strength to strength and her portfolio includes both chief operations director of EMEA at MediaCom LLC and UK business director when MediaCom won Sky, Shell, T-Mobile and VW Group. Karen was listed in Management Today’s 35 under 35 twice and topped the PowerList in 2015. 

Presenter and Portsmouth alumna Gemma Frith will delve into Karen’s journey since graduating 25 years ago. 

We welcome you to submit your questions for Karen either during the event on the Facebook page or before the event by emailing alumni@port.ac.uk
