He became a founding director of Free State in 2000, the design and communications company that uses the built environment to create awareness far beyond the reach of traditional media. Projects include Zoomorphic, an exhibition for the V&A and Electric Storm, a 3 month renewable energy event on the South Bank in London. In 2005 he left London and Free State to focus on sustainable housing. He is currently working on several sustainable housing projects in London, Wiltshire, and the Cotswolds, where he now lives.
"I would be grateful if you would pass on to Charlie my personal thanks for his excellent Chairmanship…It was a pleasure to meet him. Many delegates have said that a highlight was the fantastic rapport and debate Charlie developed with the speakers…the questions he asked captured the audience's interest and kept the whole day running smoothly.
"The day went fantastically well and all the kids, and adults, thought Charlie was fantastic. I had sent him an email containing the winning designs the day before and I was unbelievably impressed that he's not only had a quick look through but had clearly studied them all in great detail.
He was a brilliant ambassador and I'm really pleased that he's told me to get in touch with him again with a view to doing a feature for my next magazine which comes out in September which can look at various of the projects he's working on and his great love of Cornwall.
"I'm pleased to say everything went really well! Charlie is a great speaker.
"Charlie injected a spark of humour into a serious topic that got delegates and speakers talking afterwards. A few delegates were overheard saying that they would consider booking him for their events!
"Charlie has attended Grand Designs Live in London and Birmingham in 2012, and we love having him. Charlie delivers a very engaging and well thought out seminar that has drawn in a large audience each time. His thought provoking seminars have encouraged visitor participation and we have received very positive feedback. He has always approached the shows in a very professional manner and has been keen to get involved with other areas of the show as well. Thank you!
