“Charlie is by far one of the best hosts I’ve worked with, her ability to draw the audience into everything she did was really warm, genuine and engaging. It is hard at live galas like the one we did last week to turn on a sixpence and remain fresh and involved but Charlie did all of that and more… and with a smile and a sense of humour. I will certainly be recommending her to our clients in the future.”
“Charlie hosted ‘A future vision for the London Youth Games x Nike.’ The session took place on a Zoom webinar platform. We were excited to have presentations and two panel conversations. The panels included young people and some of our most important stakeholders from Sport England, Nike and London Sport. Charlie brought a brilliant tone and professionalism to the event. Navigating us through the various parts of the session and making all of our guests feel incredibly welcome. The feedback on the session was brilliant and we couldn’t have done it without Charlie.”
“It was a real pleasure to work with Charlie in what has been a very difficult year for everybody. We first worked with on the ‘Inside the Mind’ series that was commissioned by the EFL and Mind for Mental Health Awareness Week in May 2020 during lockdown and Charlie used her experience and professionalism to lead some challenging interviews with sensitivity and insight. Charlie then expertly hosted a virtual parliamentary roundtable this Autumn for the EFL and Mind, showcasing the best of the On Your Side mental health partnership to a high profile audience made up of MPs and Chief Executives. All the feedback we had was in praise of Charlie’s handling of the session on the day. Both before and after Charlie was engaged, prepared and happy to be a part of the event. We’d certainly recommend working with Charlie on future projects.”
