Charlie Charlton

Charlie Charlton is a prominent advocate for the North East.

A journalist who’s helping to sculpt a new narrative for the North East by curating and hosting sell-out events, whilst creating content for film, podcasts and socials.

Charlie presented on award-winning local and national BBC radio and TV for almost 20 years. She’s since stepped away from daily news to build global collaboration via her role as the Community Engagement Manager at Newcastle Helix, the world-leading innovation site.

Charlie believes the North East’s superpower is its people. Known for holding organisations to account, she’s not afraid to ask the difficult questions that can help drive the region forward.

Charlie was shortlisted for the prestigious Northern Power Women Awards 2023 – Agent of Change. With a special interest in uncovering the human stories of business and workplace EDI, Charlie became the first woman in the UK to host a day-long business conference with her baby in a sling.

Charlie is very proud to be a Patron of Changing Lives, a national charity supporting vulnerable people and families experiencing homelessness, addiction or abuse.
