Karen Carney MBE

Karen Carney MBE

With over 140 caps for England under her belt, and a former captain for both England’s Lionesses and Chelsea Ladies FC, Karen Carney definitely has a knack for reaching her goals. Her expertise and experience playing at the highest level of women’s football at both Champions League and National levels – including four World Cups and four European Championships – make her an entertaining and motivational speaker.

Since she announced her retirement from football in 2019, Karen has become a much sought-after sporting broadcaster for the likes of the BBC and BT Sport.

Sadly, Karen has been subject to a high level of abuse online, leaving her feeling suicidal. She has used her own experience with depression, and other mental health struggles to inspire audiences around the country.
