For the last fifteen years Charlie Cannon has worked and coached at the interface of leadership, performance and wellbeing with leaders from some of the most well known brands in the world.
He specialises in helping leaders and teams, build resilience, drive sustained performance and develop their greatest and often overlooked asset, their energy.
A recent example of a keynote was to 500 leaders of Santander at the Guildhall, on ‘Embracing Change; how to build resilience in an uncertain world.’
Charlie has also recently worked with McKinsey, Deloitte, Tesco, HSBC Barclays, BP, Mars, Roche and Unilever.
Before working in Corporations Charlie Cannon was a successful personal trainer, where at one point he was training both an Oscar winning actor and actress. Yet most of his clients were busy executives and he regularly got feedback that their performance at work had improved due to their increase in fitness and energy.
His passion for psychological resilience comes from struggling to perform under pressure and not realising his dream of becoming a professional sportsman. As a schoolboy he played Rugby for England and West of England hockey.
A traumatic car accident at twenty-one, that left him badly injured and his sister on a life support machine, taught him that setbacks are our biggest opportunities for growth and development and we should rethink our attitude towards failure.
