Whether you are looking for a professional presentation to a corporate group, a motivational speech, or simply an entertaining and inspiring evening of stories, I can tailor my presentations to suit your needs. All my talks are accompanied by stunning photos from the Alps, Himalayas, Andes and Atlas Mountains, and all are designed to be enjoyable, amusing and inspiring.
‘Charlie’s sense of humour complements the seriousness of the subject matter to give us a brilliant insight into the life of a modern alpinist. This isn’t the highly-polished (and flavourless) presentation of a professional, sponsored athlete, worlds removed from the modest exploits of the local climbing club member. Charlie shows us exactly what is possible for the average climber willing to train hard and strap on a pair. But it’s not all about big objectives either; one of the feelings that comes across most clearly in his show is a love for the mountains and walking amongst them and a sense of satisfaction that sometimes has little to do with measurable achievement. Overall a wonderful show full of stunning photographs delivered by a climber who knows his business.’

Charlie recently came to our school in Geneva to talk to our children about their current geography topic of mountains. He captured the children’s attention from the moment he arrived, and was bombarded with questions from the minute he began! His talk was professional and tailored perfectly to the age group. He spoke with confidence and enthusiasm, and left our children with a new found excitement, and a hunger to learn more about the mountains. Thank you Charlie!

Charlie manages to avoid cliché and paints a fascinating picture of a lifestyle most us wouldn’t dare to follow, skilfully making his audience feel at once envious and relieved that they don’t share his day job. He speaks with a perfect blend of confidence, self-deprecation and humour to provide a truly entertaining lecture.
