As a conductor, Charles’ key role is to motivate people to bring out their very best performance. By drawing on his real-life experiences as an award winning conductor and composer of international renown, he demonstrates the simple ingredients of orchestrating success that anyone can adopt in their working life.  

People were deeply moved by the stories you shared with us…and also took on board your thoughts on trust, diversity and teamwork. It fitted perfectly as a central ‘piece’ to our 4 day conference
— Michael Elliot. VP Medical Affairs, Gilead

Using storytelling, music-making, amusing anecdotes and video, Charles illustrates his key messages in a engaging and inspiring way. There is no ‘one size fits all’, he tailors his presentation to the composition and contexts of each audience.

By drawing metaphors between a working orchestra and a typical corporate environment, Charles engages his audience in  a ‘lived experience’ of what it is to trust, lead, risk and succeed, imbuing participants with refreshed energy for a better future where everyone succeeds.
