‘Put your phone down and go and learn something new’ – wise advice from Charlotte to her teenage self.

She is currently learning to be fluent in British Sign Language, she knows basic signs but would love to be able to communicate better with the deaf community to be more inclusive.

At work she is motivated by having the right team around her, and although she is solely responsible for HR at Footprint, she says it’s a misconception that she works alone – she works closely with everyone!

If she could trade places with anyone for a day, it would be Holly Willoughby, and her favourite TV show is The Office (U.S.), (seasons 2-7) ‘it’s the most chaotic office environment and provides great entertainment!’.
