Meet the Team
Charlie founded Culture15 and is leading the development of the business. His vision for Culture 15 is to provide organisations with a rigorous, business-centred framework with which to reliably measure and manage their culture.
His career in business has shown him that despite recognising that culture is the determining factor in business success (or failure), few organisations take the description, measurement and tracking of their culture seriously, dooming the topic to be subjective and peripheral in nature and dealt with in sporadic and superficial ways. This is the gap that Culture15 is laser-focused on filling.
Charlie lives in SW London with his wife, 3 children and 2 dogs.
