Charlie Webster is regularly booked to engage audiences at events, read their latest feedback below:
“I have had the pleasure of working with Charlie on a number of occasions, having called on her services as a corporate event host, interviewer and panel chair. Every time we have worked together, I’ve found Charlie to be fantastically easy to work with- well prepared and passionate and a refreshing mix of personal and professional. Most of all, I appreciate working with someone who is willing to contribute to the overall outcome, offering ideas to build on the brief and produce a better end result”
“Charlie was asked if she would give her story at this year’s event (January 2020) and this is key to our attendees to help engage, remind and encourage their support. We’ve learned many things over the years and being able to convey your message in a way that connects but says don’t pity me, help but don’t hinder, engage and support, help- if you can. Charlie conveyed these messages and more through her personal storytelling, her challenges and ability to overcome adversity. Further, what’s important is that speakers need to find a way to overcome their fear and engage with the audience before, during and after their speech. This isn’t easy (an immense understatement) and Charlie handled this superbly. Staying the course for a time after speaking with attendees and supporters. Personally, I have got to know Charlie since this event and her excellent work with Mind also, an area during Covid which has become another key focus for our communities and us all just being good human beings. I cannot thank Charlie enough and we know we have her support and would encourage her support to you if being considered”
“Charlie has been great to deal with. She comes across as someone who is generous, reliable, trustworthy, helpful and willing to go above and beyond the call of duty, especially for a good cause. My experience of dealing with Charlie is that she is someone who is highly professional with excellent integrity and a fantastic work ethic. I would have no hesitation in using Charlie’s services again”
