I'm the face behind (and in front of) Charlotte Talks. began Charlotte Talks out of the love of motivating, educating and making people laugh. I will bring personality and professionalism to a variety of events.
Because I will create a fun, productive, and memorable atmosphere for any occasion. While keeping everything running smoothly.
I'm a passionate, driven and bubbly person. I'm a business owner, a mum, a wife and a beauty therapist.
I’ve been in the beauty industry for almost 30 years and my whole focus has always been about making somebody feel awesome. I know a lot about skin and even more on how to look after it. From the foods you eat to the products you put on right though to sun products and how they work, I am the chick who you want around.
Starting my business Silk Skin Spa in 2009 from the ground up has been one of my favourite journeys, from very humble beginnings, Silk Skin Spa now has the best team of 6 awesome cool chicks who are all leaders in their own right. I know how to build a great team and I can teach other leaders how to get their team to be a tight unit that whistle while they work.
And then there is my theatre. I love being on stage. I’ve been on and off the floor boards in Taranaki since mid 90’s with my latest play being Noises Off in 2018. There really is not much better in this world than the ability to make somebody laugh.
I have been lucky to have travelled the world and back again, the latest adventure being in 2017 where my husband and I trekked to Everest Base Camp for our 20 year wedding anniversary. We’ve done the big OE based in London, Africa and Europe and had many a worldly entertaining experiences let me tell you! From funny to soul destroying and challenging, my travel stories are not only motivating but interesting and even jaw-dropping.
It is all about being positive, yes yes yes, I know, you’ve heard this all before...well it’s true, that’s why it is a popular topic! I am the queen of glass half full, you can find the good in pretty much everything if you have the right mindset...except bad coffee, there is nothing good about that, ever. Unless you are in Turkey, then at least you are drinking coffee that is very strong mud with some old dude that has too many stories to tell just over one cuppa...see, there I go, even bad coffee can be awesome sometimes. From mindfulness to waking up each day (well OK, most days) with a positive attitude, I can teach you and your friends/team how to just stop to smell the flowers, be mindful without all the hippy jargon that comes with it these days
I have two kids and I love my family more than anything in this whole world. I am the best and worst Mum on Earth. I can not give you any advise on how to raise kids cos I don’t think I got it right, but I have some blood funny stories to tell and some ideas that I’ve learned but not actually managed to put in place myself. I did get a dog to try and prove to myself that I can raise dependents, but he is also in the cute but little shit category...maybe a fish next time
As you can see, not only do I talk a lot, but I can also write a lot. In a nutshell, I’m a glass half full chick who is a realist, passionate about people being the best they can be, and have a lot of knowledge on life, travel, dressing to suit you, your style, colours and shape and I am bloody good at teaching and entertaining everyone else
