Dr. Karl Moore
Prior to his academic career, Dr. Karl Moore worked for 11 years in Canadian sales and marketing management positions with IBM and Hitachi. Before McGill, he taught at Oxford University for five years. He recently presented his research on introverts at Harvard Business School, Oxford, IMD, and the Stanford Business School. His research on ambiverts was highlighted in The Economist in 2016 (the Schumpeter column) and in 2021 (the Bartleby column).
Karl hosts a weekly program, The CEO Series on Montreal radio station CJAD, where he conducts one-on-one interviews with global thought and business leaders. Previous guests include Justin Trudeau, Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, and Eileen Murray, co-CEO of Bridgewater Associates. In November 2020, Karl and an Indigenous graduate student started a biweekly column for The Globe and Mail titled Indigenous Leaders that features interviews with Indigenous leaders in Canada and elsewhere. Karl has interviewed 1,000-plus CEOs, prime ministers, generals and other senior leaders, among the most in the world (one of the few advantages of age is that you done things longer than most everyone else). He has blogged weekly for Forbes for over 10 years and has a weekly piece in French in Quebec business publication Les Affaires.
Karl was recently nominated for the 2021 Thinkers50 Distinguished Achievement Awards in the Leadership category as a top thinker for his work on introverts/extroverts in the C-suite and millennials. He is the author of 28 refereed journal articles and nine books.
