“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

“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 and Development, CHUBB Europe, Eurasia & Africa

“Charlie is a true professional and we cannot recommend him highly enough. He has taken the time to get to know the organisation and the individuals and really cares about people and how he can help them perform better and ultimately impact on team and organisational performance. On a one to one basis or on programme delivery Charlie very quickly gains people’s trust through his ability to question, listen, support and challenge individuals and groups in a non-threatening way.

Charlie has been instrumental in helping us transform our business and we look forward to working with him in the future.”

Carmel Murphy

HR Director, Arnotts, Dublin

“Charlie has an excellent ability to connect with his audience and is quickly able to understand their current reality. His credibility is enhanced by his focus on role modelling effective coaching techniques to get the best out of our leaders. His facilitation style enables him to seamlessly connect his own unique first hand experiences within the context of our business – thereby enabling our leaders to feel empowered to quickly apply the insights they have gained.”

Stephen Mulvenna,

Group Head of Talent Acquisition, Coca-Cola

“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.”

Charlie was so good – passionate, interesting and knowledgeable.”

David Petronzio


“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

“I thought the Resilience course that you did on Tuesday for Sainsbury’s was fantastic. It was fascinating to see how you adapt your ideas and techniques to suit the workplace. I rarely leave a training session or workshop feeling inspired and it was truly inspirational. Thank you!”


HR Manager, Sainsbury's

“Charlie was one of the best speakers I have experienced at the Henley Business School."

Wendy Hay


“Charlie ran a High Performing Teams workshop using a target shooting activity as a vehicle for understanding how we operate under pressure and the impact that different types of goals have on how we manage our focus. Charlie was very good at engaging us with the subject and very creative in how he got us to improve our performance over the course of the session.  


Operators are a challenging group of people to work with but Charlie made it a very impactful session for all of us. We were talking about it for a long time afterwards and the concepts have remained invaluable to the team.”
