I worked with Charles and whilst our sectors were very different I found Charles to be a detailed and clear strategic thinker. He has a natural aptitude in applying his comprehensive understanding of a broad range of business skills into different verticals. He is also naturally equipped with first class influencing skills, which are an asset to any organisation.
Nick Walls, Managing Director R2C Online Limited
Charles has been working with my Team and I for the past year. He is an awe-inspiring advisor and mentor, great at taking a step back and providing an alternative point of view on both operational and strategic matters.
Charles has been of value to us in regard to sales strategy, client meetings, fundraising and his contacts within the hospitality Industry have also been a benefit to us. Just one of the many benefits of having Charles on our team is that we have learnt so much from him and his experience. In addition, he has been a key contributor to the personal development of some specific members of our team.
I would whole heartily recommend Charles to
any SME or Startup that is looking for an advisor/consultant to offer an alternative point of view, with a wealth of knowledge in not just the hospitality space but also with business development.
Founder at Job Squad and Ignite Manchester 2017
I retained Charles for three months to help develop a new strategy at Airship to drive our growth. Charles is very experienced and well connected and was able to help me not only create a short list of companies to approach, but set-up and attend appointments. From the conception of the project plan to the delivery of the strategy, Charles was very straight forward to deal with. The strategy continues to deliver good results. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
Dan Bookman, Director of Airship
I worked with Charles when he was
at IndiCater and can honestly say that he
is an absolutely great client to have – he is very clear, strategic, motivating and inspiring. Charles is also very good at developing
people and so I think he will do very well
in his new venture.
Ann Elliotts, CEO Elliotts
Charles is a Non Exec Director on our subsidiary company board Unicus. He brings
a great realism to how the hospitality industry operates, based upon his extensive experience. He asks all the right questions, which generates good discussion and has been very helpful in assisting us shape our strategy, which in particular I have found useful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Charles as a valuable contributor on either a project, or assisting on getting your business to the next level.
