Charlie Cannon

Internationally recognised Management Trainer and Executive Coach

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.

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.
