To learn more about Charlie, listen to his podcast here

For the last fifteen years he has worked as a leadership development consultant and coach with some of the most well known brands in the world, including, HSBC, PepsiCo, Tesco, BP, Roche, Ebay, Airbus, The Metropolitan Police, Deloitte, Allen & Overy, Mars, Unilever, Uber, Manchester City Football club, The Soho House Group, Santander, Marks & Spencer and Amazon.

In Charlie’s live events and trainings he draws upon his rich life experience and combines this with cutting edge research from science and psychology to give them tools and techniques that they can act upon immediately that will catalyse their performance and well-being.

Prior to working in business Charlie was a successful health and fitness coach, where at one point he was training an Oscar winning actor and actress. What he observed, was that most of his clients were busy, time poor, stressed and burnt out executives who wanted to increase their energy and manage stress better. This concerned him.

His passion for helping people build resilience stems from not just working with all these stressed out executives, but also his own story in not becoming the professional sportsman he had dreamed of being, due to struggling to be at his best when it counted.And, perhaps more tellingly, he knows first-hand what it takes to recover from a near death experience that left him hospitalised and his sister moments away from dying.

At 21 he was involved in a traumatic car accident with his sister who almost died. This incident eventually inspired his research into resilience and overcoming adversity.

Charlie played rugby for England, West of England hockey and county cricket as a school-boy, but he struggled to perform under pressure, which has showed him the importance of developing a growth mindset and building mental toughness.

Charlie is highly adept at authentically engaging very senior banking leaders on the topic of personal performance and resilience. At a recent n-1 leadership development programme, Korn Ferry had put together a team of stand out key note speakers, and a truly world-class faculty. From the anecdotal feedback on the day and in the formal feedback, Charlie's session was described as one of the most impactful of the 3 days, and resonated particularly powerfully with the audience. Thank you Charlie from all of us at Korn Ferry as well as from our client team Allied Irish Bank.

I attended a leadership event with Santander where Charlie delivered a session on well-being and personal leadership. The session was well structured and very interactive and instigated reflection on personal traits for improvement. Some great techniques to use every day to improve self awareness and in line, provides the tools to master the art of personal leadership that also supports wellbeing at work. Charlie delivered with lots of energy, enthusiasm and passion!


Charlie’s understanding of personal resilience and how it is applied to senior leadership is unparalleled.


We received a lot of positive feedback from Charles' session on Resilience.
