Our People

Charly White Vivid Leadership

Meet Charly White, specialist charity leadership trainer and coach

With a background in fundraising for Charities such as the NSPCC and The National Trust, Charly understands all too well the challenges that come with working in the charity sector. Since qualifying as a coach and trainer, she has supported over 900 non-profit leaders both online and face-to-face. 

Thoughtful, friendly, and dedicated, Charly’s approachable nature is often what stands out the most when it comes to her working relationships. In fact, her Dad sums her up in a beautifully succinct way, “Charly doesn’t walk into a room and say, ‘here I am’, but instead walks in and says, ‘there you are’.”

She adores working with leaders and teams who are committed to wanting to work even more effectively together, and have plenty of fun along the way too! She loves to see the ‘penny drop’ moment, or equally the slow dawning as they uncover their answer and way forward. It’s magic to witness and support clients in that process.

 

Charly lives with her family in Bristol, where she is also a trustee of Penny Brohn UK.

 

On working with the team at Vivid, Charly says, “ I’m honoured to have such a committed and talented team who I often turn to for advice. Running your own business can sometimes be a lonely position to be in, but since working with Lisa, Lorna and Bethany, I always know I have someone to support and challenge me.”

 

Top Tip: Do more of what you love. People tend to burn out or lose direction in life, not because they’re doing too much, but because they’re doing too little of what they love.

Lorna Clark Vivid Leadership

Lorna Clarke, associate coach, facilitator & trainer

Lorna is a qualified and accredited leadership coach and facilitator with a background in senior leadership roles in professional services, start-ups and the third sector.

Lorna’s interest in leadership and what makes a high-performing team began in 2004, as she worked with a coach as she transitioned to a director role at Deloitte. Today, she often works with individuals and teams who are navigating significant transitions and change. Clients include NHS, M&S, KTN (part of Innovate UK), Sight Research UK and IRISi. Lorna really enjoys the people she works with, and feels privileged to be alongside them in a coaching conversation.

As her clients grow in confidence in their ability, and recognise more of their innate strengths and talents, Lorna loves being part of their transformational journey. Honest, curious, and empathetic, she prides herself on her integrity and compassion.

In her spare time, Lorna is a mentor for Junction 21, a project working with young people at risk.

On working with the team at Vivid, Lorna says, “I always enjoy working with clients in the charity sector, and the commitment I see and hear to the cause and to making a real difference to the lives of others. I also really enjoy working with Charly. I always feel appreciated and valued in our conversations, and that I have the opportunity to bring my experience into any training we’re delivering rather than having to do this in a set way.”

Top Tip: Have self-compassion. Often we push ourselves too hard, put high expectations on ourselves and judge and criticise ourselves harshly. This can cause us a lot of anxiety and distress.  Cultivating greater self-compassion can be a valuable antidote to this.

Lisa Grove Vivid Leadership

Lisa Grove - Operations/Office Manager

Lisa has over 20 years of experience in business support and ensures that Vivid maintains the processes and structures to support our continued business growth.

Highly skilled and versatile, Lisa is trained in business administration, bookkeeping, customer service, international trade and service, and of course…..project management.

She has previously worked with a variety of different businesses across an array of sectors, including pharma, fashion, and aerospace. This has given her an insight into various different systems and structures, as well as what works and what doesn’t. She uses this knowledge to support and develop our business as we continue to grow and reach more clients.

Caring, dedicated, and trustworthy, Lisa loves supporting the team, keeping everyone focused, energised, upbeat, and happy. 

She loves the Dorset Coast, loathes wasps, and has a slight obsession with Emma Bridgewater mugs. When Lisa’s not working, she’s kept busy by her two boys, aged 16 and 8 (whom Lisa describes as ‘going on 28!’) and their scatty springer spaniel.

On working with the team at Vivid, Lisa says, “I truly love being part of the team. They’re an amazing group of ladies, and it’s a pleasure to work with them and make a real difference.

Top Tip: A quote from Steve Maraboli, “A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.” 

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

We pride ourselves on helping all our clients reach their full potential and to have lots of fun along the way. We think we do a great job but it is always nice to hear straight from the horses mouth what our clients think about how we help them.

Charly is a highly skilled coach, facilitator and trainer with the ability to empower others to work effectively and reach their potential.

Susan Foster, Director, National Trust

Working with Charly was incredibly beneficial for my team. We came away enthused and immediately put into practice what we had learnt and felt empowered to take ownership of our own resilience and well-being. I would highly recommend this training.

Lisa Cousins, CEO, Ethiopiaid

The programme has been a fantastic bonding experience, and a chance for us all to feel comfortable in identifying our strengths and development areas. We now know how to get the best out of each other and bounce back from challenges. It’s definitely brought us closer and made us a much better fundraising department.

Jess Sayer, Alzheimer’s Research UK

Charlotte’s ability to share her knowledge and provide support in an empowering way, combined with her thorough understanding of how organisations work, has ensured that Wish has become skilled-up to take forward this important funding stream with absolute confidence and success. Thank you Charlotte.

Joyce Kallevik, Director of Wish

The team development days facilitated by Charly have brought us closer together. We now have absolute clarity about what our purpose is, and the way we wish to work together to deliver our goals, particularly income growth. As a leader, I believe that looking after my team is vital, and having time together on a well-crafted and facilitated away day is key to this.

Louise McCathie, Director of Fundraising, NHS Charities Together

This was my first coaching experience and I have been absolutely delighted with it. Charly was easy to build rapport with and helped me with practical tools and encouragement during our sessions. I would highly recommend Charly and her coaching to anyone who feels they want to make changes, are considering whether coaching might be right for them or are thinking of trying it for the first time.

Simona Fionda, Director, Financial Services Compensation Scheme
