Former chairman of an international fund management group, Charles actually started his career as a barrister after graduating from Oxford. He is currently Chairman of the Human Values Foundation, an educational charity which helps young people develop moral, emotional, social and spiritual values.
“Giving World is a brilliantly simple concept. It provides a practical way for businesses to support worthy causes, while doing their bit to reduce the squandering of the world’s resources.”
Being in the fortunate position of a marketing academic, previously at the University of Leicester and now The Open University, I’ve always sought to support and learn from the practices of public, charity and cause-focused organisations. For over a decade I’ve worked closely with Giving World and Personal Care Packs through a series of student projects, programme evaluations and supporting strategy development. It is one of the real pleasures of my job that I can support and introduce others to the work of the charity. Especially one which is innovative in outlook and passionate in their commitment to supporting their beneficiaries.
