About Me:

I’m Charly White, founder of Vivid Leadership Ltd. I’m an experienced trainer, facilitator and leadership coach. My background is in fundraising, specialising in Major and Mid-Value Giving. For over 15 years I raised significant funds for the NSPCC, The National Trust and Mary Potter Hospice in Wellington, New Zealand.

In 2016 I qualified as a coach, gaining a Post-Graduate Certificate from the University of Chester. I have since coached over 500 nonprofit sector leaders and emerging leaders, helping them to make a positive step change in their personal and professional development.

Through my company, Vivid Leadership Ltd, I provide coaching and training to leaders and teams, helping my clients to succeed in demanding roles whilst maintaining a healthy balance. I work with clients online and face to face.

I enjoy being a Trustee of Penny Brohn UK, a national charity dedicated to helping people live well with cancer. I live in Bristol with my family and love having easy access to explore Devon and South Wales at the weekends.
