Charlie Charlton

Conference Chair


Charlie Charlton is a well respected interviewer and host, who's presented on award-winning local and national radio stations. Charlie's known for her engaging presenting style- witty and warm, whilst getting to grips with the issues that matter to you.


After almost 20 years with the BBC, Charlie has now left her role as Senior Journalist to go freelance as an interviewer. This has already led to her being described as “inspirational” on LinkedIn after she became the first woman in the UK to host a day-long business conference with her 4 month-old baby in a sling!

As presenter of the BBC Newcastle Breakfast Show, Charlie helped beat all previous audience figures for this ARIA-nominated Station of the Year. Her interviews have featured on Panorama and Newsnight, as well as the national press.


Her Geordie lilt has been heard nationally while presenting on BBC Radio 5Live- alongside Nicky Campbell for the flagship Breakfast Show, and when stepping in for interviewers like Adrian Chiles and Stephen Nolan. Charlie is also a well-known personality from her time as newsreader for regional BBC TV, and as an investigative reporter for the multi-award-winning current affairs programme Inside Out. You can also see Charlie regularly hosting events- whether it’s on-stage Q&As, live business conferences, virtual award shows or music concerts.


EQ Connects is a one of a kind, immersive conference that focuses on Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and the tangible benefits that developing your EQ can bring to your self and your organisation.

The 2022 conference takes place 10 May at Edgbaston Park Hotel, Birmingham UK.
