About Charlie

I feel that this is as good a place as ever to introduce myself – I’m Charlie Whyman and I’m a Business Development Strategist, B2B LinkedIn Consultant and Trainer, Speaker and host of The Curiosity Key Podcast.
I believe that great businesses come from powerful networks built from authentic and strategic relationships.
I’ve built up a huge amount of experience working across over 10 different industries and sectors in various commercial leadership roles as well as having experience as a Rowing and Olympic Weightlifting Coach.
I focus all my energy and expertise into training and coaching business owners and founders and helping them grow their businesses.
As an aspiring athlete I also know that in order to achieve results you need a good coach to help you get there and I use both my commercial and sports coaching experience in my programmes, training and consulting work.
If you want to know more about me and my past experience then please have a look at my LinkedIn profile.


Here are a few fun facts about me:

When I was hit by a car and had to stop rowing myself I started coaching the mens Intermediate Squad and trained as a Level 2 Rowing coach

My first business was Palmavera Fine Foods - a company that imported speciality food from Sardinia

I've been running events for over 15 years now including trade shows, user conferences and workshops - getting a car onto a stand in Germany was a proud moment!

When I moved to Sardinia I ended up learning everything I could about Olive Oil - the oil I produced from my family's olive grove was so good it won a Great Taste Award 2 years running

Having been responsible for importing and exporting equipment around the world I gained a new appreciation for the shipping industry when I worked with Martek Marine

Demonstrating drones to clients and spending days outside was definitely a high-point when I worked in sales.

When the DfT gave the UK police forces funding to purchase LiDAR equipment, I helped them realise the benefits

I'm a really big outdoors person and love travelling and seeing the world - this is me on my way up to Everest Base camp

I adore technology and love inspiring more people to get involved in technical sales and marketing

I enjoy speaking at events about technology and am a contributor for the Women on The Web membership club which aims to help more women become technically empowered.
