“Charlies session was amazing. She is very easy to listen to and her strength and resilience is inspiring. The other thing I took away was to never underestimate the power of a small gesture. We often shy away when someone is going through something we don’t fully understand. But in reality it could just be a ‘hello’, ‘how are you’, ‘good to see you’ that has the biggest impact on them feeling included, safe and accepted.” – ASOS
“Charlie brought an amazingly authentic and engaging approach to telling her story and this has proven inspiring to many in attendance, with the programme being rated as “highly recommended” by 93% of attendees. We would wholeheartedly recommend working with Charlie and hope to do so again in the future. Sean Holmes, Chairperson, BMW Group UK PRIDE
“Rarely do you get to hear such an inspirational and motivational speaker. Charlie’s presentation was empowering and thought provoking and generated so much positive debate across the community and our allies. Crispin Burridge, LGBTQ Affinity Network Chair, Kingfisher Plc
