About Us

At Charlotte Sweeney Associates we provide a number of services that support and enable organisations to adapt for an ever-changing world and to be ahead of the curve. Our specialisms are inclusion, diversity, wellbeing, engagement and change leadership.

We provide consulting advice with pragmatic solutions, action orientated research and thought leadership, mediation and coaching and thought provoking and practical keynote speeches.

Our uniqueness comes from the fact that all our interventions are outputs and delivery focused with a clear eye on measuring impact, both quantitatively and qualitatively, and supporting our clients to create their own business case for activity.

Importantly, we partner with organisations and the people in them and act as a critical friend to change the way they think and behave, supporting them all the way.

Charlotte is a leading expert in equality, diversity and inclusion and has advised a number of Government bodies on their strategies and focus.
