Charlie is an experienced communications specialist with a track record in engaging policymakers on climate and environment issues. He is adept at taking dry, complex policy and making it relevant and accessible, while respecting the nuance and quality of the original content. His approach involves understanding key audiences, what they want, and how they will be most receptive to information or messaging. He’s in his element working across a range of media – from online, to film, to print.
Before joining di:ga Charlie was Senior Communications Officer at the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), where he ran communications for the organisation’s climate and environment programmes. Prior to that, he worked for the Climate and Development Knowledge Network and the Low Emission Development Strategies Global Partnership. Alongside di:ga Charlie is studying an MSc at the University of Bristol. He’s researching the links between social change, media narratives and the climate emergency.
"Working with di:ga was fantastic. They provided excellent support and advice on strategy, media relations and editing, quickly becoming a trusted part of the core team. They were assertive yet tactful, focused, efficient and 100% committed to helping us achieve impact."
