Charlie Lawson is the National Director of BNI in the UK. BNI helps small businesses to increase their turnover through networking – last year, BNI members generated nearly £500m business for each other.
Despite running a networking organisation, Charlie is a very Unnatural Networker. Most experts talk about networking as though it is the easiest thing in the world to go up to people and talk to them. Charlie helps other Unnatural Networkers gain confidence to network by putting it across from the point of view of someone who’d rather not be doing it at all.
In his spare time, Charlie can generally be found running, while daydreaming that Spurs will finish above Arsenal in the league.
