Baroness Karren Brady CBE is recognised as the UK’s most high-profile business woman. As Vice-Chairman of West Ham United FC, the club has become, under her leadership, one of the five fastest-growing brands in world football. Her wealth of experience supporting entrepreneurs led to her appointment as the UK government’s Small Business Ambassador. In 2013, she was awarded a CBE for services to Women in Business and Entrepreneurship; the following year she was elevated to the House of Lords by the Prime Minister, taking the title Baroness Karren Brady of Knightsbridge.
