When (if) you get to work with Charlie, you soon realise that you are in the presence of one of the greatest career coaches possible. Charlie is a critical listener and it is pretty amazing to experience. He seems to have this ability to draw out key insights into your personality, experiences, passions and wishes in order to then provide guidance on possible directions to take. In my own personal experience, spending time with Charlie to discuss the various options that lay in front of me was critical to many of the steps that I took at that time in my career. Additionally, he was instrumental in various elements of decision making, defining the internal workings of organisations to help me better understand the mechanics of certain possible outcomes and ultimately an excellent source of referral for uncertain situations. I have absolutely no doubt that I am a stronger and more focussed leader thanks to the time I spent with Charlie and through the insights that he provided. For any senior executive, I would highly recommend a personal career coaching session with Charlie.

Charlie has been providing coaching and leadership development services to us for over 3 years now, including one2one executive coaching, designing/running leadership development workshops and facilitating team away days (including one for 120 people that was hugely successful and he ran single handed!). He has become one of our most trusted and valued partners and has made a significant and measureable difference to our business…time and time again when coaching or some form of development is required, it is Charlie that the business ask for. I would highly recommend Charlie to any potential client.

I've worked with Charlie in a number of guises... with him as a trainer, coach and co-facilitator. He is one of those expert professionals who you know is going to bring out the best in you, your people and your organisation as a whole. I've graduated from the Business Coaching Academy, one of Charlie's ventures, and found my personal performance transformed. I've introduced him to my scarlettabbott clients and found him to add value, rigour and fresh thinking to our conversations, without exception. And Charlie has trained, facilitated for and coached my own team, with outstanding results. I highly recommend working with Charlie across any of these disciplines. He's simply one of the best in his field.

When I first met Charlie as part of my MBA with London Business School, I was struggling with my career direction and focus, which was having a negative impact on many areas of my life. He brought a no nonsense approach to our sessions that was truly refreshing, and helped me take a long, hard look at myself and what I wanted to achieve. I learnt so much from the experience and cannot recommend Charlie highly enough.

Charlie is an engaging and energetic facilitator who is quick to understand real business needs. Charlie’s relaxed demeanour puts you at ease immediately and he provides relevant challenge to bring about impactful outcomes and change. His ability to connect with everyone whilst driving out purpose and commitment to action is superb. It’s fair to say there’s no hiding place and he won’t let you off the hook but surely that’s the point!

After the coaching sessions with Charlie I have a much higher level of self awareness than before. I am much more observant of my behavior as well as the behavior of others, especially in business meetings. I am also able to understand the different communicating styles of others and how to effectively communicate with them better. Thank you Charlie!

Charlie builds excellent business and stakeholder relationships that help to ensure that the solutions he provides are relevant and enable the business to drive performance. He is creative in finding solutions and manages to build instant positive rapport. He is also able to provide constructive criticism and development for individuals in a way that is impactful but has the necessary effect. I would highly recommend Charlie.
