Charlie’s career has always been in ‘live’ events and communication and he brings (almost) 30 years of experience to bare.
Charlie is Director of Client strategy at Identity a global, full service live events agency. His core function is to define and implement the approach to client acquisition in both domestic and global markets. Although currently loving his role, Charlie has never lost his entrepreneurial spark and in the last 20 years has built an award winning events agency and was part of teams that launched a TV, Film and animation business, an outdoor sport and fitness show and the largest closed-road triathlon on the south coast.
Giving something back and investing in the future of the industry has always been important to Charlie. Over the years has offered internships students studying Event Management degrees and he has been a mentor at both Sussex and Brighton Universities supporting the International Business and Event Management courses.
Charlie lives in Brighton and Hove with his wife and two children. He and his family can often be found bobbing about in the sea, or walking the South Downs with their dog ‘Eddie’.
