Project Management

As a Prince2 Qualified project manager with years of experience on delivering small, medium and large size projects (£10k – £3million), I am adept at all areas of Project Management.

I have worked on projects from small scale freelance project administration to large scale EU/UK Government funded growth initiatives on a national scale.

From budgeting and planning, through delivery and to output and impact assessment, I offer an end to end solution to ensure the timely and effective delivery of projects for stakeholders of all sizes.

Production Management

CORPORATE – Working as a Freelance Production Manager on a global video marketing campaign for one of the largest brands in hotel accommodation. Planning, resourcing and delivering assets for web and social media in 4 continents using both UK and local crew. View on Youtube

FEATURES – I have Production Manager and Assistant Production Coordinator credits on two low budget features. This work has followed much of my project and locations experience as a natural fit for my skillset.

Location Scouting and Management

Scouting and managing locations for a variety of film projects from low budget UK features to large international visiting productions. I take pride in finding the very best locations using not only local knowledge and my extensive list of contracts but also my personal qualities which are essential when liaising between production and property owners and local authorities.

Charlie worked with us on some strategic plans and key project documents in support of a large funding bid for a new digital product. The nature of this work was very last minute but she arrived within an hour of
our call, set to work and gave our project shape and structure almost immediately. She is an extremely flexible and hard working individual whose in-depth knowledge of fundraising, events and project management made her the perfect person for the job. She also has fantastic contacts who added even more value to her time with us. We look forward to working with Charlie again in the future and
recommend her without hesitation.

I hesitate to write a recommendation for Charlotte based on the description of her as a Project Manager - it doesn't begin to describe what she brings to the table when you work with her. She delivers so much
more than just the crisply efficient running of big, complex, stakeholder-sensitive initiatives - she imbues everyone with confidence (that everything will be alright), has great communication skills...team
management, problem-solving, logistics, after-hours fun...nothing seems to faze her.
I would work with her again, and again, at the drop of a hat.
I have been convinced, for a while now, that high level project management is the critically missing ingredient in so many businesses and organisations, the key to executing which, as we know, is worth
infinitely more than any idea, however great. Charlotte is a consummate executor.

Anthony Story, Innovation Director at Creative England – Line Manager at Creative England

Charlie was responsible for the day to day management of the iNet project. This was a complex multi-£mil,EU-funded project. Charlie was responsible for organising a range of events and workshops which he did
with a high degree of professionalism and diligent detail - she has meticulous planning and organisational skills. She also managed the minefield of project reporting to the EU paymaster. These projects have
some of the most stringent audit requirements imaginable. Charlie's forensic attention to detail, self-motivation and commitment to excellence was vital in making sure the project was perfectly organised and
satisfied the auditors when the project came to be intensively scrutinised. This covered, budgets, bank statements, engagement forms and a raft of paper-work to satisfy various contractual obligations. She is
also great fun to work with, has a great laugh and mountain of funny stories to perk up long train journeys.
