“Charlie is an innovative and inspiring coach who thinks holistically about the components of high performance. He has partnered with me on top talent events to help raise confidence, courage, personal brand, resilience and overall performance for individuals. A credible, knowledgeable and focused speaker whom I would certainly recommend.”

Terry Jones

Director of Learning & Development

“This is one of the best workshops I have ever been on and I found the whole day very thought provoking. The main thing for me was that day was all about me as a person, my mindset, how I respond to pressure, what I control and what I need to do differently in order to be or become resilient. With the techniques that I learned on the day I feel more equipped to apply this back into the workplace.”

Glenda Briggs

Regional HR Partner - Sainsbury's


“Charlie’s presentation to Linklaters’ corporate lawyers was a highlight of our conference this year. His experience in the army, as a sportsman and as a performance psychologist enable him to offer some unique insights and practical guidance to improve individual and group performance. I still refer to his presentation today.”

Owen Clay

Linklaters Partner, Corporate Group Leader


“Right from our first meeting, I loved the way Charlie combined his elite performance background, his client experience and his psychology expertise. It's a powerful combination of knowledge across sport, business and people.


He has a strong focus on great learning, and also retains a really human side that makes his sessions great fun. A wonderful person to add to your team. Highly recommended.”
